Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Heralded across the country in newspapers ranging from The New York Times Book Review and The Baltimore Sun to The Minneapolis Star Tribune and The Denver Post, and in magazines as diverse as Chicago and Library Journal, the Haunted America series has attracted widespread acclaim as a virtual spectral travelogue through the byways and highways of North America. Haunted Heritage: A Definitive Collection of American Ghost Stories, the latest volume in the series. Continues its recounting of supernatural explorations, collecting a comprehensive compendium of ghostly tales, not penned by fictioneers such as Poe and King, but passed on by word of mouth and preserved by memory as actual windows on our nations haunted past.

The authors have compiled an astounding collection of American ghost stories. Based on interviews with eyewitnesses, unearthed ancient archives, overheard tales, and actual paranormal visitations and explorations. From the "Haunts of Ivy," a survey of university ghosts, to an overview of spectral lights, from revolutionary spirits in New England to beyond the grave occurrences in the Badlands, Haunted Heritage is the ghost story collection for all of North America.

Synopsis:

“Its a road map to the Other Side. Take a left at the cemetery. Go down Highway 666 until you hit a dead end. And youre there. Haunted America.”--Milwaukee Journal

Haunted Heritage recounts Michael Norman's and Beth Scotts unearthly explorations of supernatural folklore that has been passed on by word of mouth and preserved by memory.

Based on eyewitness testimony newly rediscovered ancient archives, overheard tales, and actual paranormal visitations, the authors have compiled an astounding collection of American ghost stories.

Its chilling tales will not be easily forgotten.

Synopsis:

The latest in the bestselling series of Americana occult folklore collections that have included Haunted America and Historic Haunted America, Haunted Heritage brings together yet another amazing collection of spectral tales from all across the United States and Canada.

 
The tales-based on interviews, public records, and family histories-reach from coast-to-coast in the United States and Canada. Some involve famous families (such as that of American patriot Nathan Hale), and some, famous events (such as the Battle of Little Big Horn). Some are gentle and benevolent (a family member watching over his/her descendants), other vengeful and disruptive (the unresting souls of the wrongfully dead).

About the Author

Michael Norman has taught at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls for more than twenty-five years. Beth Scott, who died in early 1994, was full-time freelance writer for more than thirty-five years.
