From the Book jacket: "In all the country. New England holds the richest repository of stories of the supernatural," writes Holly Nadler. "And why not? The region has all the elements of a ghost factory. First you take a foundation of Native American culture trampled underfoot,... Add to that the layers of colorful history-rag-tag militia vs. Redcoats, Puritans vs. witches, pirates and smugglers vs. everyone,... Is it any wonder that Boston, the area's oldest, biggest, and in its own uptight, repressed way, its most passionate city should be overrun with spirits?" Ranging from the eighteenth century to the present and from Beacon Hill to windswept Cape Ann, Ghosts of Boston Town proves that the Boston region indeed offers a remarkable variety of ghostly phenomena. Many of these accounts are satisfyingly ghoulish and creepy; some are colored with a certain poignancy or even a trace of humor, for these are stories of the living as well as the dead. In these pages, experienced ghost researcher Holly Nadler (author of Haunted Island: True Ghost Stories from Martha's Vineyard) takes us on a wonderfully disturbing tour of the supernatural neighborhoods of Boston town.
