New England’s Scariest Stories And Urban Legends
by Summer Paradis & Cathy McManus
Journey through New England’s darkest places and read 22 of its scariest stories and urban legends.

See the grave of Midnight Mary and the Desert of Maine, and judge for yourself if their curses are real. Try to walk with the Leather Man and wonder why he chooses to walk alone.
Visit The House of the Seven Gables and The Shunned House, both famous in literature, and learn of ghosts that still linger there.
Cross Emily’s Bridge in Vermont, creep over the alleged vampire Mercy Brown’s grave in Rhode Island, and more. New England promises to scare you!
