Truro:: The Story of a Cape Cod Town (Definitive History)
We traversed with delight new reaches of the shore . . . one mile there was as good as two elsewhere.
--Henry David Thoreau describing Truro in Cape Cod
Like Thoreau, all who venture to Truro experience sheer delight at their first glimpse of this fabled coast. The Outer Cape's hauntingly beautiful beaches have been attracting tourists since their discovery. Yet, as longtime resident Richard Whalen expertly chronicles in Truro: The Story of a Cape Cod Town, there is far more to Truro than its coastal fringe. The Pilgrims thought first of settling in Truro; the town almost had its own Boston Tea Party; and its tiny militia took 460 British prisoners after the wreck of their warship. Now, Truro enjoys status as a favorite summer destination--even as conservationists work to preserve the fragile shoreline. Read Truro to discover the compelling story of a town whose fortunes remain forever linked with the sea.

It is illustrated with photographs, drawings, maps and charts, as well as an extensive bibliography.

The Ghosts of Cape Cod
Historic Cape Cod has 15 towns, stretching from Bourne to Provincetown. Each town and village has ghosts and many stories to tell about them. In this book, the author has chosen some of the lesser known, but fascinating apparitions, such The Ghost of the 13 Churches - Dr. Abner Hersey: Ahsoo, the Native American girl who sings with a voice of gold but has a face like a fallen log: and the 300 year old parson who sneaks into people's yards to snatch posies from their flower boats. These and many other legends are included by the author, who visited many of the sites himself and not only wrote the stories, but also took a number of the more than two dozens photos that are included in the E-book edition. (The print edition does not have the pictures). In one of the most fascinating parts of the book, the author describes in narrative and with pictures, the eerie, secluded burial ground of the tribe of Princess Scargo. Because this graveyard is virtually unknown, and hard to find, the author has given specific directions to the compelling site, that overlooks Scargo Lake. Stories from all four parts of Cape Cod are included in this 'must read' collection.

Cedar and Oak to Burn a Witch Past and present collide in a Cape Cod town
A haunting and terrifying tale of love, betrayal, and perverted justice.
Alternating between the present and past, the story is told from two perspectives, that of the historian rooting around for the truth, and that of the victim anxious to clear her name. A witch burning that never made it into the history books. Not in Salem, Massachusetts, but in the little sleepy fishing village of Wellfleet on Cape Cod.
When professor of New England Colonial history Emily Jones settles into the old family farmhouse, Bound Brook Island Farm, built in the eighteenth century by her Welsh ancestors, she plans to research her family's story for a non-fiction book detailing the daily life of a typical Cape Cod family before the peninsula became a tourist Mecca. A simple but interesting story, it seems, until she, just by chance, runs into an old battered headstone that leads her into a vortex of deep dark family secrets. Secrets hidden not only by her family, but by a half dozen prominent early settler families. Secrets that defy credibility! Soon, she realizes that if she tells this seemingly implausible story, she could be risking both her reputation and career.
When her sister April arrives for the summer and begins receiving "messages" and having otherworldly experiences, all hell breaks loose. Almost literally.
Mystery, history, ghosts, and two love stories, one current and one lost in the mists of time, make this a book not soon put down or forgotten after read.
