Synopsis: In Witchcraft, folklorist Clary Croft explores the many examples of witchcraft identified in the Maritimes and explains their cultural origins-Scottish, Mi'kmaq, Acadian, German, among others. He finds examples of spells, charms, and superstitions involving everything from animal horns and blood to salt and milk. Croft also traces witchcraft's more official history from the Maritimes' first witch trial in 1684—the trial of Jean Campagna—followed by others throughout the eighteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth centuries.

A thoroughly researched history of an often-misunderstood practice, Witchcraft is a rich source of Maritime folklore.

About the Author: Steve Vernon learned the storytelling tradition from his grandfather. As part of the Writers in the Schools program he now teaches this tradition to Nova Scotia children in schools across the province. His books include Maritime Murder, The Lunenburg Werewolf, the children's picture book Maritime Monsters, and the YA novel Sinking Deeper.
