Spooky New England: Tales Of Hauntings, Strange Happenings and Other Local Lore by S. E. Schlosser

Pull up a chair or gather round the campfire and get ready for 35 creepy tails of ghostly hauntings, eerie happenings and other strange occurrences in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts. Set in New England's historic towns, charming old islands, and sparsely populated backwoods, the stories in this entertaining and compelling collection will have you looking over your shoulder again and again.

Yankee folklore is kept alive in these expert retellings by master storyteller S.E. Schlosser, and in artist Paul Hoffman's evocative illustrations. You'll meet seaweed-covered phantom sailors and a ghostly black dog, hear otherworldly voices and things that go bump in the night, and feel an icy wind on the back of your neck on a warm summer evening. Whether read around the campfire on a dark and stormy night or from the backseat of the family van on the way to grandma's, this is a collection to treasure.
