Spirit Tailings: Ghost Tales from Virginia City, Butte and Helena Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Floorboards creaking. Inanimate objects flying off walls. Fleeting glimpses of ghostly figures moving in solemn grace through the halls and walls of our homes and offices. We all recognize these telltale signs of haunted places, and in this delightful collection of stories from Montana's legendary mining towns the state's supernatural history comes to life. Ellen Baumler has tracked down descendants and participants, searched out historical records, and interviewed hundreds in her passionate pursuit of the ghost tales of Helena, Virginia City, and Butte. With a lively pen and critical eye, she captures in these wonderful stories Montana's rich cultural heritage - and scares the bejesus out of you to boot.

Synopsis:

This wonderful collection--based on oral testimony, diaries, journals, and newspaper accounts--presents an eerie history of the state's legendary mining towns.

Synopsis:

If ghosts are the restless spirits of those who died violently or in a state of unreadiness, then Montana's violent frontier history explains the richness and depth of these haunting stories. This wonderful collection--based on oral testimony, diaries, journals, and newspaper accounts--presents an eerie history of the state's legendary mining towns. In addition to their ghoulish intrigue, these stories combine to provide new perspectives and a greater appreciation for Montana¿s past.
