Product Details

The story of New England is built on an endless armature of fascinating tales of Yankee ingenuity and intrepid characters, and this book brings together the top fifty wildest among them-shipwreck victims surviving any way they could; Indian, pirate, and shark attacks; cougar and bear attacks; and, of course, rum runners and bootleggers doing what they do best. Read these stories and many more: Boon Island's Curse: A winter wreck in 1710 strands fourteen sailors on this barren rock off the coast of York, Maine. Ten survive-through cannibalism. Massachusetts Bay Man-Eater: Angler Joseph Blaney, in 1830, attracts the attention of two great white sharks in the middle of Massachusetts Bay.
