Shelves: nonfic-history
Not sure where to shelf this. It's nonfiction in the sense that it tells the story of various hauntings in Maine. However, I don't personally believe in ghosts so from that perspective a lot of it is fictional. Maybe I should have a shelf called mythology. I'll put it in "history" for now because many of the tales are of historical "ghosts."

I picked this up when my wife and I were in Maine for vacation. I always like to get a book on local lore whenever I take a trip.

Finished this book while on

I did not choose 5 stars for this book because of the writing...it was fine...but because of what I discovered about my own family history through reading it. I am electrified to learn that a 2nd cousin 2x removed is active despite his death in 1952! There were other tidbits as well...including the vampire to consumption link right at the time when at least one ancestor passed from this horrible disease. If you have ties to Maine do read this book!

This was a ghost story book on a par with my beloved Haunted Ohio books. Well written, well researched.

Some interesting stories. A couple gave me goose bumps, a couple were dull enough that I had to skim.
