Book Description

Short, entertaining historical tales from the Maritimes, Rogues and Rascals is an anecdotal history of the Maritime provinces, with a particular eye to the odd, the interesting, and the obscure.

Five thematic sections collect 200 short tales of con men and hangmen, murderers and soul savers, heroes and failures, superstitions and miracles—and even ghosts.
