Overview

What lurks in the mysterious woods of Michigan's Keweenaw Peninsula?

With a history as deep and rich as the shadows in the forest, the Keweenaw—nicknamed the Copper Country—boasts ample fodder for tales of tortured spirits and playful tricksters. From ghosts of the copper mining industry to kissing specters, Haunted Copper Country whisks you away on a whirlwind tour of this Upper Peninsula treasure. A brief history of each location provides insight into the origins of the haunted tales, many never before published and culled from the author's interviews with witnesses and ghost hunters. Explore the spooky side of the Keweenaw—if you dare.

This book features a full-color interior, bringing the stories to life in vivid detail.
