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!!

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!

My Grandfather is featured in one of the stories about the Ridgeway ghost. William (Willy/Billy) Powell! My mom told me he used to gather all the kids (9 of them) around and he'd sit there and tell stories about the Ridgeway ghost. I'm a connoisseur of horror and ghost stories....but lemme tell ya.....the stories in this book...ALL of them....sent shivers up and down my spine! It's best read during the daytime cause at night....every little noise you hear is going to make you jump!

I purchased this book for my daughter's 14th birthday (She is now 15! My big girl!), who is a horror movie fanatic, and began reading it while in the car. It's very interesting! Good price and GREAT book!
