A very good anthology of ghost stories. I enjoyed them very much.
This book really embraces the folklore and story-telling of times past, but with current testimony and documentation as the stories unfold. Good Read for travel.
I don't know what I was thinking, I wanted a book that gave me chills but wasn't as scary as The Shining (which I was too scared to read past page 80). This book made me roll my eyes. I read all about the family of Nathan Hale and the haunting part? It was about two sentences that said someone heard footsteps once and no one could say what had caused them. Lame-o! This book should be called Heritage with the Littlest Bit of Stupid Ghost Stories Thrown In.

This took too long to read, but not because it was boring. All the pressure I felt to finish it by a stupid deadline, which was governed by those damn reading challenges took all the enjoyment out of the story.
I'm pretty sure that NEXT year (xx) I'll be refusing the reading challenge.
I read to enjoy myself not to feel like I'm at work and racing against the clock to get things done.
This is my favorite book in the Haunted America series by Norman and his late co author, Ms Scott. It also marks the first appearance of ghost hunter and now published author Michael Renegar, ion 2 chapters, one called The Story Man!

Another in the long line of ghost story collections by Michael Norman and Beth Scott, in my opinion the most important "ghost authors" of the last 30 years (only rivaled by Holzer).
scares the crap out of me every time I read it. Mostly because I always get the urge to read it around Halloween.

I wanted to read this before Halloween. It's a history book/ book of ghost stories combination. So far so good...
Enjoyed this compilation of hauntings across the nation.
