BEWARE THE SALTY SEA DOGS AND WRETCHED WRECKS ALONG THE SPIRIT-FILLED COAST OF CAPE COD Clipper ships, packet ships, whale boats, and steamers left home ports on Cape Cod to navigate the icy seas. Death demanded a toll from those aboard who dared to risk the waves—and those they left behind forever awaiting their return. Extracted from The Haunting of Cape Cod and the Islands, published by Pelican Publishing, plus four new chapters, each tale brims with a froth of fascinating facts related to the ghostly mariners and their exploits . . . or their watery graves. Addresses for these fraught sites can be found at the end of the book; contacting the ghosts is up to you.

Cultural documentarian Barbara Sillery admits a penchant for the paranormal and a fascination with the past. Her passion for antiques introduced her to the world of the supernatural, and her interest in the story behind each piece led to her desire to capture their colorful history. After spending years in New Orleans absorbing and documenting regional history, she now resides on Cape Cod, Massachusetts.
