I also recommend her other book, Specters in Doorways, which can be found here: www.untoldtalesofutah.com

This book was a good little read. I live in Utah and the information was interesting. However the main reason i bought this book was because it included information about Joseph A. Slade, i enjoyed reading the rest of the book as well.
