When the old fisherman saw an eerie blue light begin to flash in a downstairs window of the deserted beach house, he started to run. Footsteps began to follow him-he heard them crunching in the sand... Ghosts and smugglers at the shore, a brother and sister alone on a terrifying trip to freedom on the underground railroad, a courageous boy in a devastating fire, a horse that spends the night in a guest room-these are but a few of the characters brought to life in this charming collection of exciting short stories about New Jersey. These tales could all be true. They are based on either fact or legend, and they are located all over the state-from its southernmost tip at Cape May, to Johnsonburg and Morristown in the north, and many points in-between.
