For all of Lake Champlain's storied past and historical importance, there just wasn't much here that was fresh and new and there was simply no depth at all. Champ, of course, got the usual treatment, and it was interesting to learn the history of the various sightings. But I was disappointed there wasn't more, particularly in light of the recent high tech searches. The latest information is pretty easy to come by and should have been included. The stories about the unique people who founded Burlington and found ways to profit from the lake were enjoyable and mostly new to me. Some of the "ghost" stories, though, were just too much of a reach, not well researched or presented. The author just expected us to take her word for the fact a couple of buildings give people the creeps so they must be haunted. That's not enough to build a book around, particularly when there are so many well-documented (and much more fun) hauntings that could have been included.
Still, it was a good effort, and I enjoyed the read. I do think it's not much to ask to expect a lot more detail and better documentation for the price. I'd love to see the author dig deeper and undertake another edition that has a little more meat on its bones. I hope she does a follow-up.
