Campfire Tales-New England by E Ashley Rooney


The New England States share 300 years’ worth of tales covering haunted locations, witches and curses, and bloody battlefields. “Campfire Tales: New England” (Schiffer Books 2013) by E. Ashley Rooney features ghost stories of the eastern region including Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont.

Author E. Ashley Rooney takes the reader on a spine tingling look at folklore, legends, and true hauntings in a short story format—perfect for a chilly night before the fireplace or campfire setting.

In Connecticut visit the cursed village of Dudleytown where residents have a higher than usual death rate from illness, lightning bolts, insanity, suicide, and terrible misfortunes. Meet the arrogant Boy Scout in Maine who made a bet with his troop mates that he could endure the forest on his own—but did the lad really survive?

Learn the heartbreaking story of the Lowell Mill Girls trying to make a living in Massachusetts factories under unhealthy working conditions and its spirits. And, then discover the ghosts of Mount Washington Hotel in Carroll, New Hampshire. With former guests such as Babe Ruth, Winston Churchill, Joan Crawford, and Alfred Hitchcock, it is no wonder why energies have remained behind in the corridors.

Discover phantom soldiers still marching through Portsmouth, Rhode Island on foggy nights, and check into the Equinox Hotel in Manchester, Vermont where you can share a room on the third floor with none other than Mary Todd Lincoln.

So, throw another log on the fire, make a few s’mores, and “Don’t let the campfire go out!”
