Salem Witch Judge: The life and Repentance of Samul Sewal by Eve Laplante


It's about Samuel Sewall's involvement in the Salem Witch Trials. In Salem, Massachusetts during the year 1692.

I loved this book.
That's the 17th century, not 18th.

It doesn't matter. Not to me anyway.


And while we are at the history subject, is there any american books about the swedish colony in Delaware. Or about the swedish immigrants in general?
It would be interesting to read about it from an american point of view.

I plugged "Swedish immigration" into Google Books and found some, here is one:

Swedes in the Twin Cities: immigrant life and Minnesota's urban frontier - Philip J. Anderson, Dag Blanck - Google Books

In that list, I found a snippet from something called the "Swedish American Historical Society Historical Quarterly," and ended up on this site which I think you will like, it has lots of books: Swedish American Historical Society

If you're interested in fiction, Willa Cather's "O Pioneers" is about a family of Swedish immigrants who settle in Nebraska to farm.
