Ghosts guarding buried treasure, phantom ships, haunted houses and supernatural warnings of death- these are just some of the strange and mysterious phenomena that you will encounter in Bluenose Ghosts. These unexplained mysteries are all the more chilling because they are based on personal experiences of ordinary people, told to Helen Creighton, one of Canada's most respected and renowned folklorists, over a period of thirty years.

Helen Creighton was a prominent Canadian folklorist. She collected 4,000 traditional songs, stories, and myths in a career that spanned several decades and published many books and articles on Nova Scotia folk songs and folklore. She and her family lived in Dartmouth, through the nearby Halifax explostion. Being a young lady through the two wars, boarding military officers and couples, she was inspired to serve but with medical ineligibility, became an ambulance driver helping doctors and dentists.

Helen authored thirteen books, including Bluenose Magic and A Life in Folklore. I rate this book highly for the way the Creighton respects the words and stories of her interviewees. She never disrespect them and I get the feeling that she grew to an understanding of the stories and their possible supernatural origins.
