About the Author

With the publication of the original edition of Haunted Wisconsin in 1980, Michael Norman and the late Beth Scott were among the first writers in the nation to collect and publish ghost stories from a single state. Norman and Scott followed the success of the book with Haunted Heartland, true ghost stories from the American Midwest, Haunted America and Historic Haunted America. Beth Scott died in 1994. Michael Norman lives in River Falls, Wisconsin, where he writes and teaches journalism at the University of Wisconsin - River Falls.

Indeed, Wisconsin could well be considered as one of the most haunted of the 50 states.

Format: Paperback
Wisconsin is best known as the Dairy State and renowned for cheese, recreation, and one of the finest state university systems in the country. What most people might not realize is that Wisconsin is also home to some of the eeriest supernatural events and strangest ghost stories sworn to be true. Indeed, Wisconsin could well be considered as one of the most haunted of the 50 states. All this is documented in newly revised and updated edition of Michael Norman and Beth Scott's Haunted Wisconsin, a classic and superbly presented compendium of true ghost stories and eye-witness accounts of supernatural occurrences. Haunted Wisconsin showcases an aspect of the Badger State that will utterly fascinate Wisconsin history buffs and students of the paranormal.

This is a wonderful book that deserves to be in your library of nonfiction paranormal books! Michael Norman and Beth Scott deliver a well written and well researched book. These stories will send tingles down your spine! I recommend "Haunted Heartland, Haunted America and Historic Haunted America." All of their books are great!!

Great stuff for the coffee table up at our WI cottage. People seem to like it. If you're in that mood, and want to read a Wisconsin ghost story or two, this is a good choice. People don't realize that Wisconsin is (allegedly, for you non-believers) one of the most haunted states. Tons of paranormal activity reported in WI. No surprise really, with all the old farms and farmhouses, ancient woods and lakes, and all its great history. Have fun with it.

When my children were small, my hubby and I would take them all over Wisconsin. We had an older copy of this book with us on all of our adventures. The different stories and people interested the children. Many of the places we visited were because of this book. My hubby and I even spent a night in some of these places waiting for a ghost to appear. We even hiked along the railroad tracks looking for the Ridgeway Ghost. I bought this version for my older daughter and our grandchildren so that a new generation can explore and have fun in Haunted Wisconsin.

Haunted Wisconsin is a fun read. If you are looking for great tales with a good history lesson included, you will enjoy this book. The book documents ghosts and hauntings across Wisconsin, but anyone from anywhere can enjoy this easy read. If you are looking for serious hauntings and ghost tales, this is not the book for you. Happy reading!
