From the Back Cover

Thirteen Mind-Boggling Tales from
Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut,
and Rhode Island
• Dressed in leather scraps, the Leather Man walked the same 365-mile-long route through Connecticut
for more than twenty years, and his identity remained a mystery―or did it?
• Dr. Timothy Clark Smith feared being buried alive, so when he dropped dead in Middlebury,
Vermont, in 1893, his crypt included a window to his open casket, so passersby could raise the alarm
if his worst nightmare came true!
• For more than a century, people have reported seeing something they can neither identify nor explain
in the waters of Lake Champlain―exactly what that something is, is the mystery.
From vampires to an angel, a ghost rapper to a phantom ship, Mysteries and Legends of New England pulls back the curtain on some of the region’s most fascinating and compelling stories.

There are so many places and stories in this book that I never knew of. It was so hard to put this book down. If you are a mystery buff, like me, you will extremely like this book.

I thought that the book was well written but I guess that I expected more as there are many ghost stories and legends in the area. It was a fast read.
