Haunted Maine: Ghosts and Strange Phenomena of the Pine Tree State (Paperback)
Things that go bump in the night, disembodied voices, footsteps in an empty stairwell, an icy hand on your shoulder...let your imagination run wild as you read about Maine's most extraordinary apparitions, sinister spooks, and bizarre beasts. You may know of Davy Jones' curse to sailors or Big Squaw Mountain's Eternal Flame, but perhaps you haven't heard about: -the phantom pirate ship, which haunts the coast's waters, the destroyed vessel on the sea floor below; -Robert Cartier's bewitched axe, which beheaded its owner and floats aimlessly throughout the Maine woods; and -flying canoes, used in a deal with the devil by lonely loggers, who quickly regretted their agreement.
