A nice tour of some of the least populated, yet historically relevant sites in Nova Scotia. Well written, entertaining and with just enough information to make me want to investigate further. Good book.

The title is misleading and doesn't do the book justice. Rather than focus on the gimmicky ghost aspect the author tells the tales of the people living on various islands off the coast of Nova Scotia. The stories are interesting and varied, and in many cases inspiring. This is a good read for anyone interesting in local history and particularly Nova Scotia.
