The forts of Texas, once teeming with soldiers, settlers and Native Americans, today stand like silent sentinels, abandoned to the ravages of sun, wind, and time. Their legends and stories are ghostly reminders of a past steeped in violence and tragic loss. Tales of Indians wrapped in buffalo robes and a ghostly lady delivering white roses to an officer's desk are woven with historical facts, placing the reader in the midst of the action. Photographs of these historic places send the reader back in time as haunted souls of long-lost legends fill the pages.

Enjoyed the history of the forts.  Never knew that forts were abandoned for the soldiers to fight in the civil war.  Exciting tales of the ghosts that  haunt the forts and the stories of why the came to haunt.

We've given copies to numerous friends all over the country and they LOVE this book! It's not for young children, but definitely something older (high school) students would enjoy that would give them a lot of history through enjoyable stories.

While I'm not one of the people who see ghosts in old photos and accredit night noises to phantoms, I enjoyed Texas Haunted Forts. An easy way to learn about Texas history, the book is fun to read. Beware, though. It may erode some of the skepticism.
