The Spirit Book: The Encyclopedia of Clairvoyance, Channeling, and Spirit Communicationby Raymond Buckland
Can the living communicate with the dead? Many believe that spirits are constantly about us and that it is possible, through a variety of means, to speak to them and to have them speak to us. The Spirit Book looks at these methods of communication, their history, and the personalities involved throughout the past three hundred years of this eternal quest.
With 500 entries and 100 illustrations rich with details that will fascinate and astonish, The Spirit Book includes accounts of ghosts and hauntings, levitation and trances, astral projection, psychic surgery, selfpainting portraits, crystal gazing, predictions, and poltergeists. Mediums, clairvoyants, telepaths, and other well-known people connected to the field worldwide are profiled, as are notorious fakes and frauds. Spirit beliefs among the famous, including Abraham Lincoln, Mark Twain, and Mae West, are examined.
Drawing on decades of experience in the field, the legendary Raymond Buckland presents the reader with a comprehensive view of the spirit world. Compelling and entertaining, The Spirit Book is an amazing, inspiring look at the connections between the living and the dead.
