Ghosts and Haunted Places by Rosemary Ellen Guiley

Ghosts are the most common paranormal phenomena. They are fascinating and frightening to people of all ages. But are ghosts real, imagined, or the result of some weird aberration of time and space? Ghosts and Haunted Places explains the history, folklore, science, technology, and personal experience of ghosts and hauntings. Featuring accounts of documented cases, this fascinating book explores the different types of ghosts and their possible explanations, as well as the major figures and groups involved in ghost research. Special information is provided for readers who wish to conduct their own ghost investigations.

Throughout history, people have experienced amazing things that they could not fully explain. From encounters with strange creatures to sightings of mysterious flying lights, and from ghostly apparitions to visions of the future, these occurrences have fueled the idea that entities, powers, and dimensions may exist outside the boundaries of the everyday world. Each book in the Mysteries, Legends, and Unexplained Phenomena series examines one area of the paranormal. Designed to inspire readers' imaginations while informing them of the known facts, these books are written by occult experts with firsthand experience in paranormal investigations.
