LORE of the GHOST SHIP by Cristina Montalva set on the Chilean Archipelago of Chiloe draws on local folk-lore and tradition to create a magical realistic fable with color, action and human depth.

The story follows Pancho, a teenage boy, as he tries to come to terms with and understand his mother`s sudden disappearance. One of the ways he does this is to ask his uncle, Mateo, who is well versed in the mythology of the island, about the Ghost Ship, a legendary vessel which haunts the waters around the Archipelago. Mateo narration of the tale is central to the plot, and it is on the basis of this story-telling that Pancho`s final resolution occurs.
