One of Canada’s favourite storytellers is back with a collection of classic ghost stories for young readers. If you dare, make your acquaintance with dark-cloaked ladies gliding through the silent streets, headless men fished out of the ocean’s depths, and clutching hands reaching out of the inky darkness. Author and storyteller Dale Jarvis has put together a collection of spooky stories from Newfoundland and Labrador, along with ghastly tales hand-picked from haunted spots around the world, and he has retold them in his own wonderfully creepy style.

All author’s royalties from The Golden Leg will be donated to the Camp Delight Children’s Oncology Camp, a project of the Candlelighters Association of Newfoundland and Labrador. This annual summer camp program, designed for children between the ages of 7 and 17 diagnosed with cancer, their siblings, and siblings of children who have passed away, has hosted hundreds of campers since 1988.


Dale Gilbert Jarvis is a writer, storyteller and folklorist living and working in St. John’s, Newfoundland. He is the author of three books of ghost stories and fairy lore, and his fortnightly exploration of things paranormal, “Newfoundland Unexplained,” is a regular column in The Telegram. As a storyteller, Dale is much in demand at festivals and concerts, and he teaches storytelling to children and adults. He is the creator of the St. John’s Haunted Hike, a walking ghost tour through the haunted streets of old St. John’s. Inworld as Gilbert Sapwood, he is the founder of the Storytelling Guild of Second Life, and enjoys spreading the love of good stories.
