Abstract:

There is something about the sea and its shores that stirs the imagination of storytellers, and few richer sources of legends can be found than the rugged coastline of New England. Edward Rowe Snow devoted much of his life to collecting and retelling such tales, and in this volume he has gathered some of the most bizarre of the stories he has found. His subjects range from fact to fancy and from as far back as the earliest colonial days to modern times. There are accounts of phantom ships, mermaids who enchanted hapless sailors, and witches' curses that brought disaster to passing vessels. The characters are as unpredictable as the general who sold his soul to the devil and the pirate who became the self-appointed godfather to a baby born at sea. Snow also recounts two recent events that promise to become legends of the future, the sinking of the Andrea Doria and the refloating of the Etrusco from Scituate Beach.--From publisher description.
