Ghosts guarding buried treasure, phantom ships, haunted houses, and supernatural warnings of death these are just some of the strange and mysterious phenomena you will encounter in Bluenose Ghosts. These unexplained mysteries are all the more chilling because they are based on the personal experiences of ordinary people, told to Helen Creighton, one of Canada s most respected and renowned folklorists, over a period of thirty years. So when the moon is full and the wind is howling, prepare yourself to be spooked by apparitions and things that go bump in the night. Bluenose Ghosts was an instant hit when it was first published in 1957. This new edition features a new foreword from Nova Scotia writer Clary Croft, exploring Creighton s enduring influence on the province s folklore.
