Tall Tales & True from the Green Mountains

Who was Vermont’s first Ghostbuster?
Was a full-blown exorcism performed at a local college?
What mystery did a Vermont Doctor discover on the Moon?
Do unknown populations live hidden in the Green Mountains?
What are Vermont’s most shameful secrets?

These and other questions are the “favorite haunts” of Joseph A. Citro, Vermont’s Ghostmaster General. Get the answers you want—and maybe some you don’t—in this latest addition to Mr. Citro’s ongoing collection of Vermont oddities.

Strange but True!
Strange but MAYBE True!!
Strange but HOPEFULLY NOT True!!!

Grab hold and hang on as we enter that realm of the SUPER WEIRD, a place teeming with monsters, madmen, ghosts, curses, eerie lands, and strange legends. A place we call VERMONT!

"Joe Citro is an important collector. His research on local lore and legend is making a real contribution to our historic record. Perhaps most importantly, he makes the whole enterprise fun and engaging for all."
—Peter T. Mallary, former President, Vermont Historical Society

"Every state deserves a native son like Joseph A. Citro..."

Editorial Reviews

Jason Smiley
Here is yet another great collection of tales that as Joe Citro would say "might not be fiction". No one spins a Yankee yarn like Joe does. I especially enjoyed his new look at the story of the Eddy Brothers of Chittenden, VT and their family of spirit mediums. Joe is a great storyteller of both fiction and non-fiction and this latest collection does not disappoint.

    Another strong showing by Joe Citro. Perhaps not the best of his collection of strange New England tales, but certainly an interesting, entertaining read. Having grown up in Vermont myself, it was even more interesting to learn about many of these stories.
