    Excellent book about the ghosts of Roswell, GA

    "Roswell: History, Haunts, and Legends" has everything that I want in a "true ghost stories" book. Author Dianna Avena avoids recounting old wives' tales and 'folksy' stories in favor of recent - and often first- or second-hand - ghostly encounters. This book is also full of photographs of the haunted locations. Since the ghosts of Roswell, GA are not as well-known as those of more famous haunted cities, the accounts in this book are fresh and compelling. This book is an excellent overview of the spirits of Roswell, GA.
