Beyond the horizon, gales gather to transform the islands into a dangerous place. Visit them if you dare during a storm and, amidst the howling winds and driving rain, you will hear the ghosts of the past: cries of smallpox patients confined to island hospitals and shipwrecked men- echoes of soldiers on Long Island, George’s, and Peddock’s, marching off to war. You will see the apparitions of George Washington and Edgar Allen Poe.The tale “Reminiscences of a Clamdigger” presents a vivid picture of life along the shores of Boston Harbor. In “Chortov,” six seamen attempt to unravel the mystery of a missing clipper off Houghs Tombs in Quincy. “Skipping Rocks off Thompson’s Island” is a hymn to dreamers and wanderers.
