Description

The folklore of Canada’s oldest region is explored in this intriguing and entertaining collection. While some of these beliefs are specific to Atlantic Canada, others are known the world over. The book also surveys local celebrities, revealing the superstitions held in their various fields or childhoods. Author Allan Lynch recalls home remedies administered by his elders, and former NHL player Glen Murray talks about the superstitions of hockey players. From the superstitions of well-known comedians and songwriters to those of the author himself, the superstitions and wives’ tales collected here will resonate with readers of all ages.
