All proceeds benefit the Whittier Birthplace museum. Although primarily remembered for his poems celebrating rural life, Whittier also relished a good ghost story - his poetry includes tales of witchcraft, clairvoyance, deviltry, premonitions, and ghosts. His first book was not of poetry, but a study of local superstitions, The Legends of New England, which includes retelling such tales as a schoolmarm whose murdered child briefly appears and drives her to confess, a demon fiddler who forces a party to dance until their legs wear down to bloody stumps, and various references to the Robert Burns poem Tam o Shanter with its witches sabbath in a haunted church.
