Review by Library Journal Reviews

The authors have expanded their repertoire of true ghost stories previously published in Haunted Wisconsin (Stanton & Lee, 1980) and Haunted Heartland (Stanton & Lee, 1985). This collection of chilling tales of the supernatural includes at least one story from each state and from the English-speaking Canadian prov-inces. The stories recount sightings of ghostly apparitions and mysterious happenings, and their history and evolution is documented. To enhance the true-story appeal, newspaper accounts and other sources of information are given in the bibliography. Full of eerie specters and haunted houses, including the White House, this book will captivate readers of all ages. An excellent source of spine-tingling narratives for Halloween night or spooky campfire fun. For general collections.-Eloise R. Hitchcock, Tennessee Technological Univ.
