Pull up a chair or gather round the campfire and get ready for thirty creepy tales of ghostly hauntings, eerie happenings, and other strange occurrences in New York. Set in the Empire State's big cities, historic towns, rugged lakes, and sparsely populated backwoods, the stories in this entertaining and compelling collection will have readers looking over their shoulders again and again. New York's folklore is kept alive in these expert retellings by master storyteller S. E. Schlosser and in artist Paul Hoffman's evocative illustrations. Readers will meet the White Lady of Rochester, dance to the rival fiddlers in Brooklyn, hear otherworldly voices in the Catskills, and run into the things that go bump in the night on Long Island--or simply feel an icy wind on the back of their necks on a warm New York evening. Whether read around the campfire on a dark and stormy night or from the backseat of the family van on the way to grandma's, this is a collection to treasure.
