Overview

Thirteen Mind-Boggling Tales from
Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut,
and Rhode Island
 
• Dressed in leather scraps, the Leather Man walked the same 365-mile-long route through Connecticut
   for more than twenty years, and his identity remained a mystery—or did it?
 
• Dr. Timothy Clark Smith feared being buried alive, so when he dropped dead in Middlebury,
   Vermont, in 1893, his crypt included a window to his open casket, so passersby could raise the alarm
   if his worst nightmare came true!
 
• For more than a century, people have reported seeing something they can neither identify nor explain
   in the waters of Lake Champlain—exactly what that something is, is the mystery.
 
From vampires to an angel, a ghost rapper to a phantom ship, Mysteries and Legends of New England pulls back the curtain on some of the region’s most fascinating and compelling stories.
