Summary

This “fantastic collection of the Mountain State's ghostlore . . . takes readers into the legends and the phenomena like no one else can” (Jeff Belanger, author of The World’s Most Haunted Places). Rich in history and natural splendor, West Virginia also boasts a wealth of unexplained mysteries. In this volume, noted paranormal researcher Rosemary Ellen Guiley delves into more than one hundred accounts of hauntings from across the state.   From the restless spirits of the Hatfields and McCoys to John Brown’s ghost at Harper’s Ferry, Guiley shows that the region’s history is still very much with us. She also explores lesser-known mysterious places such as Droop Mountain, where headless spectors roam, and the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum, a site replete with tortured phantoms. Around the campfire or tucked away on a dark and stormy night, this big book of ghost stories is a hauntingly good read.
