Format: Paperback
I liked the book because it was one of the first books that I encountered that talked about the ghost that haunts our lodge.
Since then I have learned a lot more about the lodge and it's history.

I wish that Ron would have investigated the subject more as he is a great Alaskan writer. I would have liked to seen more history of each place and the events that created the hauntings.

A nice read on a dark winter night in a haunted lodge :-)

It was an awesome book I've only lived here for five years but I know of all the places they speak of in this book so that made it more scary, I'd like to visit some of the places they mention.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Haunted tales tell perhaps as much about the people who find them scary enough to repeat as they do about specific ghillies, ghosties, long-legged beasties, and things that go bump in the night.

In "Haunted Alaska: Ghost Stories from the Far North", the stores are mostly from the experience of the trappers, prospectors, and visitors who stay in roadside hotels. The stories seem frighteningly real.

What scares the tellers ---- and could haunt the reader----is mostly the revenants, spirits of people who met sad, bad ends haunting the places they died. That, and there's more scary stuff in the lonely reaches of that vast Alaskan world, vividly told by the author, a skilled story-teller.

All of this makes for good reading around a campfire or maybe on a plane going to Alaska. What I found most haunting about this book in a scary-good way were the pictures. These drawings are eerie and stick in your mind, amazing evocations of Kurtz's "The horror, the horror!"

Recommended for readers who like ghost stories and will be fascinated by what ghosts could haunt a landscape as grand as Alaska.
