Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"In Ghosthunting Michigan Pattskyn relates tales from 30 haunted sites in Michigan, including the Baldwin Theatre in Royal Oak and Camp Ticonderoga restaurant in Troy. She uses a conversational style, with plenty of asides about food and traveling, as she recounts stories told about the various haunts." - Joe Ballor, The Daily Tribune
