Description

"A major contribution to the study of New England folk beliefs. . . . [H]is tales, stripped of Dracula's Eastern European trappings, give a deeper and more somber meaning to the overgrown fields and their enclosing stone fences, to the derelict farmhouses and their sagging barns, of rural New England."--Michael Kenney, Boston Globe

"Elegantly spun. . . . Filled with ghostly tales, glowing corpses, rearranged bones, visits to hidden graveyards, and references to . . . Robert Frost, H. P. Lovecraft, and Amy Lowell. . . . Bell reveals the powerful roots of folk ideas, the importance of community and prophetic dreams, the pull of legend and blood. . . . This is a marvelous book."--Sam Coale, Providence Journal
