Abstract

Reprint of the 1889 Maine fireside story of Captain Kidd's treasure, believed to have been written psuedonymously by the wife of Frederic Law Olmstead, who summered on Deer Isle. Despite its many seemingly factual references to Deer Isle, the story is entirely apocryphal. Includes introduction with the history of the story and an N.C. Wyeth illustration.
