Tour the supernatural sites of Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, and Utah . . . with photos included! Throughout the Southwest, ghostly fiends and tragic figures creep in the shadows of some of the most popular and historic spots. Phantom battle cries ring across the wide prairie, spectral forms mark mountain passages, and the chilled desert night is made even colder by the ghostly visits of those lost on the wild and unpredictable frontier. Departed inmates of Yuma’s territorial prison carry on their eternal incarceration, and the unnerving laughter of children echoes through the vacant halls of White Sanitarium in Wichita Falls. The languid spirit of a former owner wanders the winding corridors of the Albuquerque Press Club. Glasses float past waiters at the Melting Pot in Littleton, and passengers at Union Station in Ogden encounter the victims of the Bagley Train Disaster of 1944. Join author Alan Brown as he recounts these and more supernatural stories of the southwestern states.

There is a dark history in southwest Ohio that some people would much rather forget. A riot tore through downtown Cincinnati in 1884, a fire burned relentlessly at the Salvation Army orphanage on Front Street, and one of the largest mass murders in history occurred in a small, unassuming home in Hamilton. Many of these tragedies have begun to fade away, forgotten in dusty books hidden on library shelves. The spirits of those involved in these tragedies, though, are not so easily forgotten. Many of the most popular historic sites and some of the lesser-known and forgotten corners of southwest Ohio are haunted by the spirits of those who lived and died there. Haunted Cincinnati and Southwest Ohio examines the ghostly history of more than 30 such locations. It tells ghost stories and reports historic events from area theaters, cemeteries, museums, parks, roads, railroad tracks, and even a castle through narrative and photographs. Perhaps the ghosts are history's way of remembering the past--even those dark corners of the past that few would like to relive.

The mysterious ghost of a young woman haunts the corridors of Virginia Intermont College. The only thing known for sure about the identity of the ghost is who she is not! One of the first things incoming VI freshmen hear is the tragic story of a young girl who died while a student there in the 1920s. Vera's scandalous love affair and suicide are described within these pages. While the author was researching known facts, there was a surprising development -- and he tells the rest of the story. No one knows for sure how many ghosts haunt the well-known Martha Washington Inn, but one regular visitor is a genteel, fiddle-playing shade from the past... The world-famous Barter Theater is haunted by the spirit of the man who founded it.... And a ghost (or two) could be lurking in a museum building that was once a tavern on The Wilderness Road. As noted in the Introduction by author Sharyn McCrumb, southwest Virginia abounds in legends and "the ghosts outnumber the people". You will meet some interesting members of this phantom citizenry in the two dozen tales that Price has included in this book of hauntings.
