I really enjoyed this one. Excellent!
At first I was afraid it was going to be one of those dreaded cop-out "people say"-type ghost books, but most of the stories that seemed to begin that way did quickly bring in personally investigated contemporary accounts, which is something I have never seen any other author do, even though I have read hundreds of ghost books.
I recommend this book for anyone who enjoys readings personally investigated true ghost story accounts.
Mr. LiBrizzi has assembled his own ghost-hunting team who set forth seeking regional, contemporary tales as witnessed by local residents. As I know from experience, mention ghosts, and people you'd never expect come out of the woodwork, eager to tell their own stories. The folks Down East are no exception. The team found plenty of great spooky, chilling tales.
Many classic legends have some basis in fact, although the exact details may be long lost. More impressive than simply researching these legends, the author has found first-hand accounts from people who can attest to having had encounters with these legendary specters themselves, with their own two eyes. Consider: It is rumored that a young woman haunts a desolate stretch of Route 182, asking for a ride to Bar Harbor. She has been encountered recently in two separate instances by people traveling that stretch of road at night. It has been said that the mysterious fog that rolls in over Fort Sullivan, Eastport, sweeps in with it the forlorn image of a long-ago soldier standing at attention, his musket by his side. He was witnessed several times by a husband and wife who live nearby. Recently, an invisible phantom left fresh footprints in the sand behind two women who walked alone on a deserted beach.Read more ›
