Inhaltsangabe: This, my third book about Staten Island, takes a look into our islands rich and diverse past in a series of short stories. Be they myth, folklore, legend or tales, they have been past down from generation to generation. Some are proven true, some are believed to be false but the one thing they all have in common, they have been repeated time after time and they are fascinating stories. I am sure that some of these stories will bring up fond memories of Staten Islands past. Some of what you will discover in this book are, tales of a Mad Monk in St. Augustine Monastery, Lost Treasure off Staten Island shores, a story about a colorful character called The Indian Lady from Shooters Island, find out why a Nazi prisoner returned after his escape from the armys Halloran General Hospital (Willowbroow State School), discover the connection that Ichabod Crane, the Lindbergh baby, Willie Sutton and the Queen of England had to Staten Island, sit back and enjoy stories of stills and moonshine, gangsters, buried treasures, local ghosts and much more.
Über den Autor: Born and raised on Staten Island, John is a native that still lives here. He has penned two other books on Staten Island. His love for the Island and his quest to find out all he can about it has lead to his vast knowledge of the Island. John maintains a website called "Old Staten Island" (www.StatenIslandHistory.com) His first two books were - "Staten Island: A Walk down Memory Lane" and "Famous People from Staten Island" I am so grateful for the pleasant response to my first two books, it just encourages me to do more research on our beloved island
