Product Description:
The streets of Historic Halifax are paved with the dark and eerie tales of its colorful and gruesome past. Shadowy secrets and hints of the unknown are lurking around every corner and in the mist that rolls in from the Atlantic. Centuries of tragic happenstance have left behind many restless spirits that are awaiting your discovery: the ghost of an eighteenth-century French admiral has been spotted marching—to the beat of his own missing heart—across the harbor and through the streets of Halifax; the haunting profile of a victim of the Halifax Explosion has been seen in the window of the city's oldest church; a spectral tall ship has been sighted plying the waters just off Point Pleasant looking for a rematch with its War of 1812 opponent.

Halifax Haunts presents the spooky history behind thirty-three of the city's scariest places. Master storyteller Steve Vernon serves as your trusted guide and offers phenomenal detail while winding you through the ghostly and ghastly happenings that still haunt Halifax to this day.
