Ghost Stories of Canada
Just when you thought it was safe to peek out from under the covers, along comes Ghost Stories of Canada to remind you that there are plenty of ghouls to watch out for in the True North.
Ghost Stories of Canada is a collection of one hundred of the eeriest accounts of ghosts, poltergeists, and hauntings ever told in Canada. Included are descriptions of some the most spine-tingling mysteries of the past - the Mackenzie River Ghost, the Baldoon Mystery, the Wynyard Apparition, and the Great Amherst Mystery, to name a few. There are also first-hand narratives of the ghostly experiences of present-day men and women from all walks of life in all parts of the country.
This is a book to sit awake with - especially on a dark and stormy night!
"Each story here sets the imagination racing, and his telling of each tale is such that he places you exactly at the scene on each instance."
