The true stories behind three terrifying local legends—photos included. This book delves into three enigmatic folk legends of New York's Hudson River Valley: the stories of Sybil Ludington, Chief Daniel Nimham, and George Denny. Each was the central figure in a dramatic series of events; each became enshrined in local lore for their actions; each has had their true story obscured; and each may have left behind a spiritual residue. Follow Vincent Dacquino as he interviews local experts, explores areas where hauntings may have occurred—such as Carmel's legendary Smalley's Inn—and digs deep into historical archives to open new windows into the lives, and possible afterlives, of these three mysterious characters.
