Overview

The Great Lakes have a colorful past that spans hundreds of years, stretches over thousands of miles... and sometimes crosses into the spirit world. Ghosts of the Great Lakes takes readers from the far eastern shores of Lake Ontario to western Lake Superior, revealing haunting and strange tales. These whispers from the other side, however, are based in history and fact. One lighthouse site hides the bones of a murdered keeper. Rapping sounds in a family home mark the beginning of the Spiritualist movement in North America. A bride has a premonition that her honeymoon ride will end in death... and soon after, the steamer she was on vanishes. Repeated sightings of ghost ships. Can these strange phenomena be attributed to the imagination? How can multiple sightings be explained away as mere tricks of light and fog? Read these historical accounts of the Great Lakes' most fascinating ghost stories and judge for yourself—are they more than mere legend? Where does fact end... and folklore begin?
