Overview

Many people have passed through the Albuquerque, New Mexico area. Some have stayed to live in the historic city, others come from ancient pueblos, mesas, and settlements outside its borders—and, for some, passions have caused them to remain, even after death. Read about the first witches and medicinemen who held supernatural powers. Learn about cultural perspectives of death and the rituals that accompany those beliefs. Visit the Mine Shaft Tavern where glasses fly off the bar, and the Santa Barbara Cemetery where a shadowy apparition holds a tattered rope attached to a noose about its neck, and feel the gaze of the lady in white at the Luna Mansion who strolls through the rooms and gazes out at visitors on the lawn. Read about LaLlorona, La Virgen de Guadalupe, the Peyote Ceremony, the Day of the Dead, and other haunting stories. Albuquerque is steeped in historic ritual; and ghostly inhabitants still flourish there.

This book did not live up to its title at all! I teach NM History and thought this might be fun to use. Half of the book is a history of different places around New Mexico and is not focused on Albuquerque. Also, most of the stories are not about "ghosts." A story about a "gypsy" woman and her store in Mountainair does not qualify as an Albuquerque "ghost" story. Very disappointed with this book. Do not buy if you are looking for good ghost stories or ways get creeped out.
