La Posada—“place of rest’—had been a grand Santa Fe home before it was converted to a hotel. The room with the canopy bed had belonged to Julia Schuster Staab, the wife of the home’s original owner, who died in 1896. In Ghost in the Desert, Hannah Nordhaus traces the life, death, and unsettled afterlife of her great-great-grandmother Julia, from her childhood in Germany to her years in the American West with her Jewish merchant husband.
American Ghost is a story of pioneer women and immigrants, of ghost hunters and psychics, of frontier fortitude and mental illness, of imagination and lore. As she traces the strands of Julia’s life, Nordhaus reveals a larger tale of how a true-life story becomes a ghost story—and how difficult it can be to separate history and myth. [close]
