I didn't know books still had typos in this day and age, but technical errors aside I found the stories very entertaining. I picked up an autographed copy when I was on the island in May.

This is another one that my husband saw in a gift shop on Mackinac Island and we checked it out from the library when we got home. It was interesting and entertaining.

Very Interesting. I can't wait until I go back to Mackinaw Island next fall, and visit all the haunted places I read about in this book.

I was actually loaned a copy of this book to read. Now I must buy my own copy and plan a trip to Mackinac and check out all the haunts!

Although this book had some real good historical notes, the supernatural information was minimal and often contained undocumented sources.
