Overview

Trapped miners from cave-ins long ago still calling for help.

Ghostly women lurking in the shadows of city streets.

Spectral holy men and outlaws from America's Spanish past making appearances in our modern age.

They are all citizens of Haunted America, and this is

HAUNTED HOMELAND.

From a haunted castle in the wilds of Alaska to phantom clergymen in the Southwest and mysterious bouncing lights on the East Coast, this latest volume covers the places, the people, and the things that belong to the earthbound realm of the fantastic. Michael Norman has gathered together spectral events of all kinds—apparitions of the famous like Mary Surratt, Mary Todd Lincoln, and Mad Anthony Wayne; haunted crime scenes in Chicago and along the Indiana byways; as well as banshees, poltergeists, and even a ghost named George who has become an accepted resident in a house in North Carolina.

Some of these tales date back to America's early days, such as the screaming woman of Marblehead, Massachusetts, while others rise from more contemporary sources, like noted mystery writer Mary Robert Rhinehart's encounter with ghost at a house on Long Island.

A ghostly Supreme Court Justice, a specter known as The Texan, an abandoned Canadian bride reminiscent of Dickens's Miss Haversham, and many others make an appearance in this latest chronicle of the Haunted American landscape.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Praise for the Haunted America series:

Haunted America provides a deliciously disturbing collection of stories from every state in the Union and Canada. . . . An impressive collection that involved eighteen years of study and investigation. Engrossing and entertaining. . . . Norman and Scott spin good yarns with fun, fact, and fright.”—Minneapolis Star-Tribune

“Inject some spirit into your travels.”—Orlando Sentinel

“It’s a road map to the Other Side. Take a left at the cemetery. Go down Highway 666 until you hit a dead end. And you’re there. Haunted America.”—The Milwaukee Journal

Could be a good book had the author kept the story line to the actual hauntings and less to the pages and pages leading up to the actual event, which in some cases are just a few lines after too much prior history.
