In this enthralling new book, Richard Panchyk has compiled a collection of true stories from Long Island�s history sure to befuddle, baffle and bemuse even lifelong residents. Who knew that Plum Island was bought with a barrel of biscuits and a few fishhooks? Or that an Oyster Bay woman accused of being a witch was instead found guilty of being a Quaker? Little-known tales of snake-eyed horses, naked ghosts, swamp serpents and cats riding horses offer a fresh look at Long Island�s past. Culled from numerous period sources, including newspapers, books and historical records, these little stories are notable both as entertaining anecdotes and as forgotten history.
