Overview


Twenty-eight spine-chilling tales of spirited lights
 
Lighthouses have always existed outside the realm of normal day-to-day human experience. Is it any wonder, then, that their keepers’ spirits—not to mention those of sailors drowned in shipwrecks and mothers searching for children lost in tragic accidents—sometimes remain behind? Through twenty-eight of the scariest ghost stories you are ever likely to encounter, Haunted Lighthouses takes you to the edge of reality and beyond.
 
You’ll read these stories and more:

• Maryland’s Lighthouse Lady: Ann Davis kept the light at Point Lookout shining through storms for more than thirty years. So complete was her dedication that she refused to retire even in death.

• 1900 Hurricane Victims Crying for Help: When Gulf breezes blow harder than usual, Bolivar Point Lighthouse near Galveston, Texas, wails, perhaps to lament the thousands who died there more than a
century ago.

• Sarah’s Missing Stomach: When fog shrouds California’s central coast, a mysterious visitor appears beside the gallery rail at the top of the Pigeon Point Lighthouse. According to legend, the ghost, that of a wealthy widow murdered more than a century ago, is not entirely whole.
