Treasury of Newfoundland Stories,
Volume II: Amazing and Strange is his 39th book and is a
substantial collection of tales from times long forgotten. They include yarns
of Newfoundland’s people and places, happenings and things, ranging from the
extraordinary and remarkable to the bizarre, uncanny and fantastic. Especially
appealing is the Christmas section which includes spine tingling tales of
spooks and spectres.
These stories have been gathered from archival materials,
old newspapers and magazines, and from the oral traditions in communities
throughout the province. Some have come from Fitzgerald’s out of print books
and have been updated whenever possible.
This is a unique collection of Newfoundland’s offbeat
history and offers readers absorbing, informative and enjoyable reading.
