Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Boston's North Shore features scenic beaches, but so much more. Christopher Forest's engaging popular history shows that over the past four centuries, the locale has hosted pirates, patriots, inventors, witches, and their tormentors; not to mention an impressive number of ghosts, wayward spirits, and other interlopers. Resonant readings for local history buffs.
