The author of Legends & Lore of Cape Cod delves deeper into the colorful local history of Massachusetts's quaint seaside region. Cape Cod may be a popular tourist destination, but it has a strange and distinctive history. The Pukwudgies were two- to three-foot beings with smooth gray skin, hairy faces and horns. These shape-shifting, mischievous "little people" are connected to Wampanoag Indian mythology. Edward Rowe Snow, a New England historian who was also known as "the Flying Santa," delivered Christmas presents to lighthouse keepers and their families. Jeremiah's Gutter was a canal in Orleans and the first Cape Cod Canal. Join author Robin Smith-Johnson as she uncovers the secrets behind many unique places, remarkable events and fascinating people. Includes photos!
