Jack Fitzgerald’s Treasury of Newfoundland Stories, Volume II: Amazing and Strange is a substantial collection of tales from times long forgotten. They include yarns of Newfoundland’s people and places, happenings and things, ranging from the extraordinary and remarkable to the bizarre, uncanny and fantastic. Especially appealing is the Christmas section which includes spine tingling tales of spooks and spectres. These stories have been gathered from archival materials, old newspapers and magazines, and from the oral traditions in communities throughout the province. Some have come from Fitzgerald’s out of print books and have been updated whenever possible.
