Dan Gagnon

“Dan has written a highly readable and first scholarly biography of Rebecca Nurse . . . Meticulously researched, Gagnon’s account traces Nurse and her family through their New World settlement; the dramatic events of her accusation, trial, and final execution; and her legacy. Gagnon makes the complex history of the Salem witch trials more easily understood, while at the same time giving us a very good read”
– Richard Trask, author of The Devil Hath Been Raised
