The best seller in the series. Real hauntings experienced by the author and his friends, including the story of America's first ghost, who was seen by hundreds of people in Maine. There is a chapter on New Hampshire's "Good Ghosts", and another on "Where to go ghost hunting." Do not read at night!
Readers tag along with the author and ghost hunters on exciting and frightening investigations of places throughout New England, in a collection of fascinating, startling, and sometimes humorous accounts of ghosts, hauntings, and other supernatural phenomena. Original.
Funny and fearful true stories of witches, innocent victims and their accusers in the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries. Curses that seemingly worked their magic and cures by healers that begot them the gallows. Emphasis is on Salem Village in 1692, where at least one of the 20 executed really was a witch.
"Most 17th and 18th century pirates came from New England and New York. They spent winters in the tropics pilaging and came north to rob in the summer months. Most of their treasures were buried here, closer to their homes, yet little has been uncovered. This book tells about the most notorious pirates who frequented the New England coast, including Kidd and Blackbeard, and describes treasure, thus far found mostly on the outer islands, and where unfound treasures might be uncovered."
"This book presents hundreds of old Indian rituals and remedies, plus the unusual and sometimes practical cures of our Colonial quack doctors. Witches' recipes for healing and the miracle ingredients of Kickapoo Juice, a century-old cure-all for all ailments, will bring a tear to your eye and a lump in your throat."
