Summary

Here is a book to thrill and chill you!  
It brings together sixty-nine stories of haunted houses, ghosts, poltergeists, apparitions, and other eerie events and experiences.  
What is amazing is that all the stories are true - they actually happened - and they happened in Ontario!  
Did Sir John A. Macdonald give advice from the dead?  
Did William Lyon Mackenzie King engage in a friendly conversation with a veteran newspaperman at Kingsmere two years after his death?  
Is Ottawa's Laurier House haunted?  
What happened in Toronto's Mackenzie House?  
Did an apparition of Walt Whitman appear in Bon Echo Provincial Park?  
Does a beautiful lady in white haunt old stone houses in the north Woodstock area?  
What was behind the Baldoon Mystery and the Dagg Poltergeist?  
Do such things happen? Are they happening today?  
In these pages there are ghosts aplenty. They appear in the villages, towns, and cities of Ontario - among them: Goderich, Hamilton, London, Toronto, Niagara-on-the-Lake, North Bay, Oakville, Oshawa, St. Catharines, and Sarnia!  
Perhaps there is a ghost near you...

    A collection of death dreams and ghost stories were gathered and presented to C.G. Jung and the author, who approaches this fascinating material from the depths of her analytic experience. 
     
    “… among the Swiss, who are commonly regarded as stolid, unimaginative, rationalistic and materialistic, there are just as many ghost stories and suchlike as, say, in England or Ireland. Indeed, as I know from my own experience … magic as practiced in the Middle Ages … has by no means died out, but still flourishes today … 
    I can recommend it to all those who know how to value things that break through the monotony of daily life with salutary effects, (sometimes!) shaking our certitudes and lending wings to the imagination.” – from the Foreword by C.G. Jung 
     
    We are left in the overpowering presence of a great mystery.
