1 Review
The latest in the bestselling series of Americana occult folklore collections that have included Haunted America and Historic Haunted America, Haunted Heritage brings together yet another amazing collection of spectral tales from all across the United States and Canada.
 The tales-based on interviews, public records, and family histories-reach from coast-to-coast in the United States and Canada. Some involve famous families (such as that of American patriot Nathan Hale), and some, famous events (such as the Battle of Little Big Horn). Some are gentle and benevolent (a family member watching over his/her descendants), other vengeful and disruptive (the unresting souls of the wrongfully dead).
