Editorial Reviews

Review

What could be better than a good ghost story or an eerie tale about our beloved Route 66?
How about sixty-six of them!
All you need to enjoy this book is a comfortable chair, an open mind, and maybe, just maybe, a nightlight. --Michael Wallis, author of Route 66: The Mother Road

Who would have thought that a Route 66 road trip could be so scary? This book is absolutely first rate and promises a bone- chilling vacation like no other you have taken before. I loved it! --Troy Taylor, author of Haunted Illinouis and President of the American Ghost Society

About the Author

Format: Paperback
Ellen Robson and Dianne Halicki have collaborated in Haunted Highway: The Spirits of Route 66 to present sixty-six true ghost stores occurring along or close by the fabled two-thousand mile transcontinental Highway 66. Best of all, each site for each story is open to the general public. The ghosts are as varied as the hotels, museums, restaurants, and showboat to which they are associated. Indeed, there are locals who maintain that some of the spirits still linger on this history highway. From poltergeists to specters, these stories capture the mystique of Route 66 with all of their attendant tragedy, romance, adventure, and love. Information is provided on each location cited including address, phone number, and hours/days of operation so that the readers can visit the sites and "ghost hunt" for themselves. Haunted Highway is highly recommended reading for students of metaphysics and the paranormal, as well as travelers making their way along Route 66.

Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful book that is very easy to read and has great continuity. While the writing is done in a matter of fact manner, you do dedect the feelings the writers have for their subject and each location. The writing is professional, tight and concise.
The pictures help to give the reader a great feel for the location being described. The maps and other graphics helps the reader feel like they are traveling down Route 66. The book itself is almost a map of Old 66.
The writing is very smooth and once you start to read about a haunted location you will not stop till you are finished. Each haunted location is described with information and facts that make you want to go see that location. The information also is factually presented so that the reader can use his/her deductive powers to make up their own minds as to the reality of the haunting.
This is a must have book for any Route 66 fan as well as any follower of the Spirit World.

I read this book about a year ago and just logged on to order it for a friend. I was surprised to see "Jane's" review. I've traveled the open portions of Route 66 several times and in my opinion, the book delivers on everything it promises. You may not see a ghost and many of the haunted places are not right on the route. The authors tell you that. The point is Route 66 leads you there, just like it lead those spirits. I think Jane missed the spirit of the book as well as the Spooklight.

They took my idea and did it one better by including real locations and true stories. I was just going to make up stories. Sometimes they wonder off the road, but that is true sixty-six style. There is always another adventure just across the road and what could be better than 66 of them. My favorite story, The Nat in Amarillo Texas, I can still feel the chill.

Format: Paperback
I thoroughly enjoyeyed this tour of Route 66 and it's ghosts. It's fast paced and a easy read with a few pages on each story. The ghosts are all either on Route 66 or very closeby to olde mother road. It definitely made me want to go on the same trip of exploration that the authors did so I guess that's a good endorsement.
