Description

Halloween was originally never a one day festival. With the ancient Druids of Britain, the first of November was a night full of mystery, in which they annually celebrated the reconstruction of the world. Although this cult is now extinct, they did give us what eventually came to be called "All Saints Day," "All Souls Day," and preceding these... "All Hallow Eve" (or if you will: All Hallow Even). A three day festival of the dead.

This books celebrates the strange and the eerie from an historical and entertaining perspective, and it does so in a whopping 50 chapters, which include:
A Historical Look at Halloween, The Mystery of the Red Wolf of Maine.
