"The stories forming the major part of this book are taken from the series "Highways andByways" which Frank Hatheway published in the Saint John Globe sixty years ago. That series consisted of accounts of his holiday wanderings, mostly o n foot, in the lower Saint John and Kennebecasis river valleys, the Gaspé and Cape Breton. He described, often in minute detail and beautiful prose, the flora and scenery he encountered, none of which is of much interest to the general reader today [??]. Sometimes he retold folklore and local tales which had been passed on to him dring his travels. These I have abstracted,edited, and, in a few cases, where improvement seemed possible, rewritten. I hope readers will be as intrigued and entertained by them as I have been ." - from Chapman's preface. Chapters : 1. The Deacon's Wooden Leg; 2. Hairfrom a Black Stallion's Tail; 3.
