Pendle Witch Country is a true story of witchcraft, murder and revenge. Roger Frost and Ian Thompson take the reader through what came to be known as some of the most famous witch trials that England has ever seen. Even in modern times the witches prove time and again to be rich inspiration for writers, playwrights poets and novelists - and even a thriving tourist industry. It is thought that the prevalence of witchcraft in and around Pendle at the time may have been an indication of what a lucrative income people could make by posing as witches. Many of the allegations that were made may well have come from people in competition with each other, trying to make a living from healing, begging and extortion. In telling this intriguing story Pendle Witches details both the local and national background, putting the witches, their trials and the events surrounding them into their seventeenth century context. It includes fascinating recent research as well as links to other, similar stories in the Pendle area. The turbulent story of the Pendle witch trials is still very much alive today and will be of enormous interest both to residents of, and visitors to, this beautiful part of the country.
