Fever in Salem by Laurie Winn Carlson
Book DescriptionThis new interpretation of the New England Witch Trials offers an innovative, well-grounded explanation of witchcraft's link to organic illness. While most historians have concentrated on the accused, Laurie Winn Carlson focuses on the afflicted. Systematically comparing the symptoms recorded in colonial diaries and court records to those of the encephalitis epidemic in the early twentieth century, she argues convincingly that the victims suffered from the same disease. "A unique blend of historical epidemiology and sociology."-Katrina L. Kelner, Science. "Meticulously researched...the author marshalls her arguments with clarity and persuasive force."-New Yorker.

Sunlight is a vital component of good health. Like plants that thrive in the sun, we humans too depend on sunlight, in our case for the production of Vitamin D. This book examines the historical and cultural factors that have created our indoor lifestyles and the medical evidence that suggests we need to get out in the sun.
Seduced by the West, Hardback (April 2003)
Carlson views the Lewis and Clark expedition as just one of several schemes to seize Western lands from foreign powers and extend the United States.
