Terrors of the Night
Terrors of the Night is a collection of more than 100 accounts of eerie events and weird experiences that have been recorded by Canadians over the last 400 years. These incredible accounts come from all parts of the country and concern witchcraft, peculiar weather conditions, wild beasts, hardly human creatures, omens, prophecies, powers beyond ours, miraculous cures, and bizarre behaviour generally. The narratives, often in the words of witnesses themselves, are taken from the columns of old newspapers, journals, and correspondence. It is an engrossing and unsettling experience to read these stories because the reader keeps asking the question, "Could such things happen?"
