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.

This is a neat little guide book if you are planning a trip to visit Gettysburg. It is well written and the pictures are fun to look at. Be warned though, they do not show up well on a black & white ereader. I had to switch to my Kindle application on my phone to see the pictures better in color. The book includes their own experiences, history of the battle fields and detailed directions to the places they visited. It is very short. I would have liked to hear more about their own experiences and a little less history I guess. Also, I think the driving directions were distracting to the story and should have been placed an the end perhaps. I have not had the opportunity to visit Gettysburg, but I would definitely take this guide along if I did. I appreciated and felt the authors passion for their discoveries. I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my review.
