Overview

For most of us, most of the time, the roads we travel are largely forgotten once we get to where we’re going. By day, they usually reveal a familiar, real—living—world. But then darkness comes. Haunted Highways brings together more than twenty of the spookiest stories ever of ghosts, hauntings, and supernatural events on or near America’s highways and byways. There are the usual suspects—the creepy hitchhiker, the eerie lights along a lonely stretch of road—as well as many you never dared to imagine. Each of the book’s twenty-five chapters ratchets up the suspense, from an introduction that sets the scene and draws you in, to a haunting climax. Whether the actor Telly Savalas’s haunting encounter with a long-dead good Samaritan on a rural Long Island road, or the Ghost Riders in the Sky who appear over the plains of Texas, these stories will bring delightful fright to readers young and old.

This book really isn't worth the money. I was excited about this book when I first bought it but majority of the stories were very boring. I am a major book worm and had to force myself to read this book. There were only two stories in this book that I liked but they weren't enough to make this book worth the money I spent on it. A very big disappointment!
