Product description

Product Description

Mine shafts, foundries, canals, and railway tunnels are not usually associated with ghosts, but all of these unusual settings are brought into play by L. T. C. Rolt in SLEEP NO MORE, his highly effective, and only, collection of ghost stories, which was first published in 1948.

Tom Rolt was an engineering historian, whose many book credits include biographies of Thomas Telford and Isambard Kingdom Brunel, as well as the highly acclaimed RED FOR DANGER, a history of railway accidents and railway safety.

Rolt's first book, NARROW BOAT, a classic in its own right, tells of his love for Britain's canals, a love which led to his involvement with the Inland Waterways Association.

His knowledge of Britain's industrial past and his love for the countryside around him are very evident in this collection of stories, which includes two stories not included in the original edition and also Rolt's essay, 'The Passing of the Ghost Story'. Rolt takes us on a haunted tour of the world he knew well—from Cornwall to Wales, and from the hill country of Shropshire to the west coast of Ireland—in tales guaranteed to make you SLEEP NO MORE.
