Ghost Stories & Legends of Prince Edward Island

 by Julie Watson

"Having the imagination to sense a shiver of delight from unusual tales of other-worldly experiences is a gift to savour." - Julie Watson

Author Julie V. Watson, has collected a wealth of ‘true tales’; many told to her by those who experienced them, or knew someone who did.  Others are culled from old newspapers and book; to add to their charm, the author sometimes copied these stories of ghosts and legends exactly as written, including the sometimes quaint spelling and punctuation.  Strange as most of these tales are, who dares to doubt the veracity of the sailors who met a phantom schooner, the fishermen who fled a sea monster, or the countless Islanders who have dug for pirate gold, only to be terrified by something uncanny into abandoning their search. 

 Referred to as a “good read” Ghost Stories and Legends of Prince Edward Island is sure to please readers of all ages.

Shipwrecks & Seafaring Tales of Prince Edward Island

by Julie V. Watson

  

Over the years thousands of seafaring people and their ships have come and gone - many lost to the relentless sea, their stories, however survive. 

In the 450 years since the European's discovered Prince Edward Island history has been tied to the sea and to ships. From the first explorers, through immigrants, traders, sailors, and fishermen thousands of seafaring people and their ships have come and gone ---- many lost to the relentless sea.

Julie Watson has dug through the archives and unearthed accounts of many harrowing tales: some stories became popular legends on the Island; others were nearly lost until included in this collection. 

The expulsion of the Acadians in the 1750s led to a disastrous voyage for 1,500.  Twenty years later, sixty Scottish families emigrating to the new world on the Annabella experienced a trip only a seafarer can image.  Read the amazing adventure of Tommy Tuplin, the tale of the Yankee Gale, of the sad fate of the Marco Polo, or the amazing truth of ice boats used to cross Northumberland Strait in the worst of winter.

Shipwrecks and Seafaring Tales of Prince Edward Island includes fascinating stories of buried treasure, legends of ghost ships, accounts of visits by privateers, buried treasure, seal hunts, water spouts, U-boats, airmen rescued from an ice floe, storms and much more.
