A must read for vacationers in Montana or even natives to the state that would like to know a bit more about their historical buildings and folklore. It covers the Montana State Prison in Deer Lodge (I swear I noticed the foul odors mentioned in this book and that was BEFORE I bought or read the book!), Grant Kohrs Ranch, haunted Butte, Missoula, Billings, and a battlefield or two. Even if you don't believe in ghosts, the history alone is worth it as your drive thru these towns.
I really just wanted to give this a 3.5, but in all honestly it's well researched. What would have made this a solid 5-star is if she would've included some of the photographs she talks about throughout. Having met the author and then noticing a lot of people I know interviewed throughout the book was the icing on the cake.
This book was certainly fun, but with all the paranormal travel/state themed books, it would be nice if it had been particularly fascinating, original, or well-written. It was just so-so/average. I would have liked more first-hand accounts and more stories to go along with it. I did enjoy reading it somewhat, though.
