Quick interesting read that gives you a brief history behind each location, along with a easy to follow directions of finding the locations the photos were taken.

The layout of the eBook was very well done, but to get the most out of the photos you may want to check them out on either your computer with the Kindle Cloud or App, or on a tablet to get full color and size viewing.

The author gives very well wrote description of their ghost walking adventures, including some very unfortunate happens to their cameras along with friends cameras.

You certainly feel inspired to make a trip to take your own tour of this area that has plenty of history, and this book would be a perfect companion to take with you.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in order to review it.

This short book contains a small collection of photos with orbs (a.k.a. lens flares, dust particles, moisture droplets, pollen - anything that can alter a photograph and make it appear as though something paranormal has occured), mists (you've heard of fog, right?), and other photo aberrations. Most of these I can easily replicate with my camera.
(And have.)

Sorry to be a cynic, but this is one of the poorest collection of supposed ghost photos that I've ever seen.

However, the story that accompanies the photos is engaging and full of little bits of trivia, including detailed locations where paranormal activity might be expected.

I've been to Gettysburg before and tried to capture a few ghostly apparitions of my own. This book would have made a nice guide to locations I should have visited.

Nicely formatted on my Kindle 3, but even better on my iPad because the photos are in color and can be easily enlarged.

One star for the photos and three for the narrative.

An excellent short guide to some of the most haunted and eeriest parts of the tragic Gettysburg Battlefield. Having been there before I had experiences in some of the same spots the author describes and I wished I had read this prior to visiting so I could have gone right to these places. I took the ghost tour provided in the town that was a great disappointment and a serious book like this truly directs you to areas where you might have your own authentic experiences. The photos throughout the book were incredibly compelling and I love how the author gives detailed instruction on how to find the exact areas in the photographs. My only complaint is I wished it was longer! Hopefully Hollister Grant will continue to describe more haunted photos and experiences in the future!

At last, a well-written ghost book!! This author knows her subject and how to negotiate the pitfalls of such stories. Entertaining writing and provocative photographs, which, in a brief space capture the REAL story of what draws people to the Gettysburg Battlefield so many years after the Civil War. It's not the information, it's the mystery--and the mystery persists.

Haunted Ground was a quick read packed with excellent information and directions to some of the bloodiest battle sites on this hallowed field. I have walked most of these sites and, while I did not see any orbs or ghosts, it is impossible to stand on them without intense feelings. As a student of Civil War history, I appreciate the awful price paid by both sides in this epic battle. It may well be true that lost souls still walk the fields... I don't know, but I do know that you cannot visit this battlefield without being moved. Kudos to Ms. Grant and her late husband for the this bit of history... and mystery.

NOT what I was expecting. This has a handful of pictures of things like fog and camera light mistakes, as well as natural lighting passed off as "ghosts". Really disappointed.

Dude, clean your lens. Every photo you have shows either lens flare, dirt, or reflection from a window. I also think you have a faulty camera back that allows light in. All you have is a collection of photos that show basic exposure issues. Glad I didn't pay for the book.

I would want this little guide book with me when I visit Gettysburg and the battlefields. The photos are intriguing and I would have to try to replicate them. It would be interesting to know how many actually do try and whether they get similar photos. The images are haunting and raise all kinds of questions like `could someone still be buried there' or `wonder if something special was buried on that particular site so it could be dug up after the war'. One photo seemed to show what it would look like if one could look down the barrel of a cannon which lead me to wonder if maybe this is a spirit, not at rest, trying to set the record straight--as though saying "over here not over there". Anything is possible.
Short and to the point, there is very little story in this book; it is a guide and tribute to the author's husband who was the main photographer. I was given the book to review. One small thing I didn't like was the comment about the Parade of Chrome, "Traffic up the wazoo." Not because I am prudish, but it just seems like there could have been a better way to say the same. The photos are excellent and I recommend this book to anyone interested in battlefield ghosts.

How you are going to enjoy this short book really depends on whether you believe in ghosts or you believe there is always a logical explanation for any event that happens. A sceptic will always look for the scientific solution and the believer in the unbelievable will usually see the figure in the mist. I can keep an open mind, but yes I am the figure in the mist type. Saying that I don't think this was really a book about ghosts per se, I thought it was an ode to the authors late husband, and a nice one at that. The tales of their walks and travels together. Unfortunately the pictures were in black and white for me, so I don't think that does them full justice. I do believe that the death of so many will leave some imprint on the area, in whatever form you wish to believe in. I felt it could have been longer with more pictures and tales, but I enjoyed it anyway. I recieved a free copy of this book for my review.

I really enjoyed this guide to the Gettysburg Battlefield. The directions to each of the locations are really easy to follow, with simple turn by turn information and landmarks. Also included are the best times to visit, and what to expect (especially with certain ghosts). The pictures, however, leave much to be desired on a Kindle. I would suggest if you want to see the pictures that you view them by another means, as on the Kindle they are very blurry and hard to view. The description of what is in the picture is enough for a Kindle reader, however, especially if you are using this very handy guide to visit the Gettysburg Battlefield and try to locate some of the ghosts yourself.

I also enjoyed reading the history of each of the locations, along with the author's experiences at each of the locations included in the guide.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in order to review it.
