Citro, American novelist Ralph Citro, () American historian Domenico Citro, Italian footballer This page or section lists people with the surname Citro. Citro's widely read publications about the more haunting history . This was my first Joe Citro book. I liked it enough to read another of his books. Citro's widely read publications about the more haunting history, legends, and lore of New England have earned him a reputation as an expert on themes of the supernatural. There were one or two gaps in the story, I thought, but it moved right along and kept my interest. He is also author of Green Mountains, Dark Tales (UPNE 1999), The Vermont Ghost Guide (UPNE 2000), Passing Strange (1996), and Green Mountain Ghosts, Ghouls, and Unsolved Mysteries (1994).

In this collection of tales, classic legends, and long-forgotten lore, best-selling compiler and investigator of the supernatural Joseph A. Citro takes us on a tour of every haunted corner of his native state. Combining the skills of a scrupulous researcher and masterful storyteller, Citro expands the terrain covered in his earlier books, venturing farther than ever before into the realms of the mysterious, the paranormal, and the just plain weird.We tour a home designed by otherworldly architects, pass the night in haunted hotels, visit an antigravity spot, and search for demon-protected treasure.We take a ride on Vermont's only ghost ship, visit tiny fairyland castles, and see a city in the sky. Then we try to determine who -- or what -- is buried in a mysterious grave in Cambridge.We meet the last woman to be hanged in Vermont, explore the strange fate of a girl who heard the music of the spheres, and consider the bashful prophetess who saw God but was too shy to tell anyone.Along the way we encounter villains and visionaries, misfits and monsters, in a state full of egotists, oddballs, and spiritual eccentrics. Skeptics and believers alike will delight in these strange but (maybe) true stories that can be read as regional history, folklore, or simply as entertainment. Guaranteed to amuse, tickle, and terrify!

I first discovered this book on a friends shelf in Florida. I am from VT so I had to look. It was incredible to read these tales which take place all over my home state, even down the road from where I grew up! The writing is well done and easy to read. If you enjoy haunted history, Vermont lore, or just ghost stories in general I would recommend!
I own a B&B here in Vermont and love to display books written about Vermont. My guests love to read them
Great book. fast shipping.
I loved this book! I live on the NY/VT border, so I spend a lot of time in southern Vermont, and it was so great to be reading about places that I have been to. It's really interesting to have a mental image of a place because you've been there, and then you learn that this place has a much darker past than you ever could have imagined, and the picture changes, but your interest increases. It's really cool. Citro's books are some of my favorites. He's a great author - I love his writing style.
While not as full or well-founded as his earlier books (more a collection of snippets), this book is another excellent collection, rewritten with incredible prose, of bizarre tales (some bordering on folklore) from Vermont's green hills. He paints a fascinating portrait of our magical land, as well as our people. Grade: A-
Yet again, I have been enthralled, scared and drawn in by Mr. Citro's tales about my home state. He even covered my home-town ghost in this installment, which thrilled me to no end. He is truly one of our master storytellers, and I highly recommend all of his work.
