Bootleggers, Lobstermen & Lumberjacks; Fifty of the Grittiest Moments in the History of Hardscrabble New England comes out in a few weeks. You can read some of the insides at Amazon. Chapter titles like; A Crushing End, The Human Shingle [guy gets frozen to his barn roof... not making this up -ed.], And With An Axe..., and more.
From the official blurb; "...true tales of hardy Yankee hill folk and crusty seafarers engaged in all manner of amazing activity —from witch-hunting [yeah! ed.] to log rolling, sometimes with tragic results." Set pre-orders to stun.
