Haunted Heartland

Front Cover
Dorset Press, 1991 - Fiction - 480 pages
1 Review
Authors Scott and Norman have collected over 150 true "ghost stories" from America's Heartland: Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, and Wisconsin. What is perhaps most striking about Haunted Heartland is that each of the stories originated in these supposedly peaceful states. From haunted mansions in Ohio to a Nebraska classroom lost in time, and from haunted manganese mines in northern Minnesota to ancient specters wandering the Ozark hills of Missouri, Scott and Norman lay to rest the notion that hauntings occur only in moss-draped southern plantations or shuttered, clapboard cottages along the Maine coast.

I have no idea as to how many copies of this book I have purchased and handed out to friends and acquaintances that love reading stories of the paranormal and afterlife. It's well written and outstanding. I've read it cover-to-cover many times and I am still fascinated by the writing of Beth Scott and Michael Norman.
I highly recommend this book!
