Northern California has a dark side, a hidden world of ghosts, monsters, and devils. This region includes the North and Central coasts, the Santa Clara and Sacramento valleys, the East Bay, and the Northern Sierra, where readers will experience strange encounters at Alcatraz, in the abandoned town of Bodie, and aboard the aircraft carrier Hornet. Also included are stories of the legendary Bear Man, Native American ghost dancers, and the spirits of novelist Jack London, the bandit Black Bart, and the ill-fated Donner party.
