Profile Information

The Golden Leg and Other Ghostly Campfire Tales
One of Canada's favourite storytellers is back with a collection of classic ghost stories for young adult readers. If you dare, make your acquaintance with dark-cloaked ladies gliding through the silent streets, headless men fished out of the ocean’s depths, and clutching hands reaching out of the inky darkness. Author and storyteller Dale Jarvis has put together a collection of spooky stories from Newfoundland and Labrador, along with ghastly tales hand-picked from haunted spots around the world, and he has retold them in his own wonderfully creepy style. This is the perfect book of tellable campfire ghost stories for professional and beginning storytellers, camp counsellors, Girl Guide and Boy Scout leaders, youth leaders, educators, and everyone who loves a creepy tale. All author's royalties go to support the Camp Delight Children's Oncology Camp. Buy a book, and help send a kid to camp!

Greetings Dale,

International Perspectives on the Art & Tradition of Storytelling will be an incredible event I'm sure. It coincides, though, with NSN's 2010 Conference in Los Angeles. Good Luck to the Storytellers of Canada.

Hello Dale, thank you for your request. Strangely enough I thought about sending a request to you. I saw you on the World Storytelling Day site and noticed you had asked a question about the theme for 2010. Now we know the theme. I wondered if you had any ideas for stories. Look forward to hearing from you. Emma

Hello Dale,
I think I have accepted your being a "friend" here in cyberspace - did it years ago for elsewhere....anyway you are on my list. I go long periods between visits here. Thanks for the information about the festival, I am following it up with Anita. Did you tell stories in Lausanne? I am going to tell Tristan and Iseult in Wales in July! I am soooo happy about this- I will be doing it in a medieval hall, built about the time the story was at its height of popularity in Europe. ooh la la.

Hello Dale,
nice to hear from you. Remember you from the festival, was it last year? On my way to Lausanne I am now staying at my publisher´s and we can´t open Internet on her computer so I have borrowed her neighbour´s computer for just a little while. Look forward to seeing you in Lausanne.

All the best,
