Witches and Warlocks of New York is a collection of legends and historical accounts about witches and warlocks from the Empire State. New York has a surprisingly rich and lasting history of witches and witchcraft. Included are a history and origins of witchcraft in New York State and historical tales of “witches” across the state including Hulda, the witch who was the origin behind a Brothers Grimm fairy tale and inspired parts of Washington Irving's Sleepy Hollow, and the Easthampton Witch Elizabeth Garlick, accused and tried thirty-five years before the Salem witch trials. These stories are known locally in the towns where they occurred but have never been collected into one book before.
