Book Description
From the Northern shores of Labrador to the south coast of Newfoundland, there are as many ghost stories as there are bays and inlets. The province of Newfoundland and Labrador is rich with tales of ghost ships, mysterious lights, sinister spectres, tokens of impending death, headless pirates and murdered loves. From legends of phantom loggers to stories of possessed teapots, Haunted Shores: True Ghost Stories of Newfoundland and Labrador is an eerie exploration of the phantom-filled nooks and crannies of the province. Why does a mournful lady ghost return to Arnold's Cove every November? Do ghostly submarines still sail the waters of Trinity Bay? What is the most haunted street in St. John's?

Drawn from both archival sources and first-hand accounts, the stories herein weave together anecdote, oral tradition, history and folklore to form a rich tapestry depicting a rarely explored side of Newfoundland and Labrador.

About the Author
Dale Gilbert Jarvis is a performer, researcher, writer and storyteller living and working in St. John's. He holds a B.Sc. (Honours) in Anthropology from Trent University and an MA in Folklore from Memorial University of Newfoundland. He currently works for the Heritage Foundation of Newfoundland and Labrador, and is the Prsident of the Newfoundland Historic Trust. Dale is a regular writer for and contributor to The Downhomer Magazine, , and his fortnightly exploration of all things paranormal in the province, "Newfoundland Unexplained," is a regular column in The Telegram.

As a storyteller, Dale has performed locally and at international festivals, but is perhaps less well known than his alter ego, the distinguished Reverend Thomas Wyckham Jarvis, Esquire. Since 1997, The Reverend has been the host and guide of the St. John's Haunted Hike, a walking ghost tour through the haunted streets of St. John's. Under his supervision, locals and tourists have been introduced to the vengeful lovers, murdered soldiers, and mysterious fires which await those brave enough to explore the secrets that lie in St. John's darkest corners. Mixing history, humour, and traditional storytelling, Dale has been winning over audiences and throwing in the odd scare here and there, and has been covered by a wide variety of local, national and international media.

Dale lives in an old yellow row house in downtown St. John's with his partner Kelly Jones, their four cats, and a relatively friendly ghost.
