Texas Ghosts: Galveston, Houston, and Vicinity by Olyve Hallmark Abbott

Take a chilling journey to South Texas, from the Woodlands to Galveston, where the long departed are waiting to tell you their stories. The spirit of Jean Lafitte may urge you to join him on his ghost ship. Meet Captain Mott's spirit that haunted the Witwer family from an attic for years-until he finally solved his "problem." Read about dead folks who wander Old City Cemetery in Columbus.

Spend a frightening vacation moving from one haunted place to the next, taking in haunted hotels, mansions, and depots-a phantasmagoria of phantoms you won't want to miss. Legends of haunted graveyards, phantom dogs, and other eerie phenomena will intrigue you. Pleasant dreams...
