Officially listed as haunted by the Rhode Island Census, this dilapidated Foster factory gives up its secrets to New England’s resident ghost experts. On May 19, 1822, Peleg Walker was found dead inside Foster’s Ramtail Factory. Almost ten years earlier, he and four other family members had made the fateful decision to start a business. Legend has it that when relations soured over arguments about money, the partnership ended, with Peleg hanging from the very bell rope he rang each morning to signal the change in shift. Whether he took his own life or was murdered remains a mystery. Recognized as a haunted site since 1885, the factory now lies in ruins. Yet Peleg still keeps vigil over its remains, sounding his night watchman’s bell and drifting with his candle lantern in hand. Authors Tom D’Agostino and Arlene Nicholson share over two decades of research into the mysterious history of Rhode Island’s haunted factory. Includes photos! “Over the past twenty-five years, D’Agostino has explored scores of sites and produced several books on his adventures, including Haunted Rhode Island. When snooping for spooks, he and his wife, Arlene, carry a briefcase of high-tech gadgetry to document his findings.” —Rhode Island Monthly

"The weird creatures and ghostly haunts of Rhode Island folklore are rooted in the forgotten chapters of the state's long history. From the ghastly moaning bones of Mount Tom to Judge William Potter's petulant antics at the Kingston Free Library, Rhode Island's apparitions have been causing trouble for centuries. Tales of more tangible terrors include werewolves that skulked in the forests of Woonsocket and aliens that lit up the skies above Wood River Junction. Monstrous serpents slithered in the hills of Coventry, and in Chepachet's Dark Swamp, an ancient evil awaited hapless prey."--back cover.

The world of golf is rife with unexplainable happenings that seemingly defy the rules of gravity and logic: There are those badly hit shots last seen disappearing into a grove of trees, only to be rediscovered on the putting green. And what of those perfectly struck drives that rocketed into the crisp blue beyond never to be seen again? Players have learned to lay blame on “the Golf Gods,” and go about their rounds. There are, however, the other stories—tales of apparitions gliding across a course, unexplained noises emanating from uninhabited rooms of a clubhouse, or the phantom golfer who appears out of nowhere to play a shot and vanishes just as suddenly. Haunted Golf explores such stories from the clubhouses of New England to the fairways of New Orleans and the links of Great Britain. Bringing readers on a journey that will enlighten, entertain, and send shivers, this book also delves into the history and flavor of the locations, painting evocative portraits of the courses and the communities. It includes a foreword by English golfer and golf analyst Peter Oosterhuis.
