Tituba, Reluctant Witch of Salem: Devilish Indians and Puritan Fantasies (American Social Experience) - Elaine G. Breslaw

Tituba is a slave known for being at the center of the Salem witch trials.

What this book does is trace Tituba's pre-Salem life, from her likely origins in South America to her time in Barbados, and also shows what impact her confession had on Salem and Puritans as a whole.

This book also dispels that Tituba was African. She was clearly identified as Indian in documents during court and before.

Although the book isn't extremely long, it is a lot of information to take in. I also felt that it was very well researched. I have read a lot about the Salem witch trials, Tituba, and her involvement is always mentioned. But this book really goes in depth and I really like the author wrote this book about Tituba. I have always wanted to know more about her, but there is only so much books on Salem tell you. If you wish to know more about Tituba, I definitely recommend this book.
