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.
