Description

Nova Scotia's Celtic heritage makes the province fertile ground for stories of 'ghoulies and ghosties, and long-leggedy beasties, and things that go bump in the night,' but until Ghost Tracks, very few of these stories involved the railways that once criss-crossed the land.This work — the fifth book by railway historian Jay Underwood — is the first to focus upon the often bizarre events that occurred to fuel the fears and suspicions of railway employees. These hard-bitten veterans of foul weather, hard work, and cold-hearted politicians were not above believing in such things!
