This book is everything I could want in an atmospheric book of witchcraft and haunting. Part fable, part horror story, part cobbled-together myth, it's a treat to read and a treat to hold; the author's gorgeous illustrations add another layer that I'm always wishing for but rarely get with adult fiction. Unlike a lot of New England witch trial narratives, this  one doesn't so much concern itself with the Christian god, but borrows heavily from American Indian lore. You should be reading Slewfoot this October.
