I read this book as part of pre Halloween and pre research project of Mysteries of History. The book is fairly well done, with good summaries of what is known (with recent research, too) about all kinds of mysterious happenings, including historical mysteries such as the Lost Dutchman Mine, Roanoke, the Anasazi; disappearances/mysterious deaths of such figures as Ambrose Bierce and Billy the Kid; spiritualistic hauntings such as Patience Worth and the Fox family; mysterious unsolved crimes, and ...more
A fun book with some mysteries that really leave you hanging. Half of them could have been further summarized - I didn't care what Sally's grandma ate for breakfast on that scary Tuesday night because it was irrelevant to the plot and climax of the short story. I was totally done by the ending- and honestly, couldn't make myself to read the last four pages. Would recommend for a fun and leisurely read. Nothing to think too hard for.
I loved this book. Troy exposes some of the greatest mysteries the United States has seen in its history. These are stories that STILL don't have an ending. None of these mysteries have been solved. This book left me thinking and thirsting for more. Great job, Troy! :)
