    Fair Information but Lousy Editing!

    First Impressions: Since I was in the Central California area I picked up this book at Old Mission Santa Inez Gift Shop near Solvang, CA. I always have had an interest in paranormal stuff, ghost hunting and such.

    This book did not disappoint in giving out the mysterious ghosts that haunt all the missions in California. However there were several negatives that bring the book down.

    First, several missions and haunted buildings are "the most haunted in California." How can several buildings be the most haunted? "Most" excludes others, right?

    Second, the editing is TERRIBLE! Missing entire paragraphs at some points in the book really make it hard to read what he's talking about. Very too bad!

    My favorite story was about making an unselfish wish to the statue of St. Anthony at Mission Santa Inez. Unfortunately I could not find that statue; I did find a painting of St. Anthony. Hopefully my wish for my friend will come true!

    Other interesting tales such as a lady in black roaming a cemetary in Mission San Miguel are fun.

    Overall, not a bad book but I'm sure there are much more extensive and interesting ghost hunting books regarding the old California missions than this.
