Fiction. Young Adult. Even before it was hidden beneath the waters of the Great Sacandaga Reservoir, the Sacandaga Valley had more than its share of ghosts. No one knows the stories of that inundated Adirondack Valley better than octagenarian Don Bowman. In this new volume, edited by folklorist Vaughn Ward, you will encounter the darker side of the supernatural in that lost valley. THE WITCH OF MAD DOG HILL is replete with chilling tales of those who had dealings with the devil, shape shifters, witches, and haunted houses. All these stories, according to Don Bowman, are true and you'll find the storyteller himself in more than a few of them. You'll also find, as folklore, history, and Don's creative eye intertwine, that these are tales written by a man who can recognize the darkness, but always celebrates the light -- without ever losing his sense of humor in the process. -- Joseph Bruchac, Adirondack writer and storyteller.
