Great Ghost Stories of the Old West Author:Edited by Betty Baker From the Introduction: — "Ghostly history is as old as man's.

And when Americans packed their Conestoga wagons and headed West, ghosts moved with them.
But the land west of the Mississippi River was unlike any seen before by man or ghost. The lonely windswept prairies led on forever...If ever a land was created for haunting, it was the American West...In this volume, American ghosts are once again brought to life, reminding the modern reader of the otherworldly magic that continues to pervade the American plains, a magic which is as old as the West itself."« less
