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. Lib., Cookeville

Haunted America takes you on a grand tour of ghostly hauntings through the U.S. and Canada,sweeping from terrifying battlefield specters at Little Bighorn to a vaudville palace in Tampa,from ghostly apparitions in President Garfield's home in Ohio to the White House in Washington D.C.
I bought this book to read about haunted places in the different states I've lived in. There are several tales that still stand out-mostly from Louisiana-that voodoo thing! But each state, the District of Columbia and several Canadian provinces each have their own chilling tales to tell. Not all are old legends-some happened in the 1980's and 1990's. I don't proclaim to believe every story-bit this will be interesting for the brave readers out there!
