From the northern shores of Labrador to the south coast of Newfoundland, there are as many ghost stories as there are bays and inlets. The province of Newfoundland and Labrador is rich with tales of ghost ships, mysterious lights, sinister spectres, tokens of impending death, headless pirates, and murdered loves. From legends of phantom loggers to stories of possessed teapots, Haunted Shores: True Ghost Stories of Newfoundland and Labrador is an eerie exploration of the phantom-filled nooks and crannies of the province. Why does a mournful lady ghost return to Arnold's Cove every November? Do ghostly submarines still sail the waters of Trinity Bay? What is the most haunted street in St. John's?<_o3a_p>


Drawn from both archival sources and first-hand accounts, the stories herein weave together anecdote, oral tradition, history and folklore to form a rich tapestry depicting a rarely explored side of Newfoundland and Labrador.<_o3a_p>

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I found this by accident but I'm glad I did the stories are not only true encounters but interesting as well. Whether you're like me and from the island, meaning you might find a story from your own town, or from anywhere else, this collection is great for people who love a good ghost story.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Read! If you are a lover of folklore, especially of the spooky variety I highly recommend Haunted Shores. Like the other books in Jarvis' series it gives a wonderful peek into Newfoundland and Labrador's dark side while still maintaining the tongue in cheek humor the province is known for.
