The Haunting of Cape Cod and the Islands by Barbara Sillery.
The ghosts of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard, and Nantucket are steeped in the sea-faring traditions of their former earthly homes. These Yankee ghosts are staunch and stubborn. They’re here whether you believe or not: they ride the waves, gallop on horseback, stroll along the beach, dance naked in a cupola, sweep the decks, pilfer make-up, stop a clock, and make a glass flower come to life. They are integral to the history of the Cape and islands, woven into myth and legend. The Haunting of Cape Cod and the Islands is the perfect beach read, or for those who want to investigate further a list of the addresses of all of the haunted sites is provided as a ghostly guide to the region.

“Encounter the friendly spirits and irritable phantoms of Cape Cod. Secret padded rooms, candles that relight themselves, and furniture that moves are only a few of the abnormalities to be discovered . . . ranging from the whimsical to the ominous, each ghost has its own story.  Using extensive interviews and research, author Barbara Sillery recounts both the written and oral spectral histories of each location.”  -Mashpee Library
