About the Author

Jeff Davis was born in Vancouver Washington in 1962. According to fmaily tradition, he is related to Jefferson Davis, the President of the Confederacy. Jeff is an army brat and grew up playing around the Vancouver Barracks, which led to an interest in history and the military. Late night horror movies also led to an interest in archaeology, mythology and the paranormal.

Jeff has been a member of the armed forces for over 20 years. He has served both in the Army Reserves as well as on active duty. He holds a commission in the U.S. Army Reserves and has served in my posts in his career, including Italy, England, Japan, Korea and Bosnia.

In between military postings, Jeff has pursued his other interests in archaeology and the paranoramal. He received a Bachelor's in Science degree from Portland State University in 1987. He worked as an archaeologist for the U.S. Forest Service for several years. He worked on the Gifford Pinchot, Umatilla, Mt. Hood and Boise National Forests from 1988 to 1994.

After leaving the Forest Service Jeff began his own archaeological and historical research firm. He worked with many public preservation groups and Native American tribes before beginning his Master's of Arts program. In 1995, Jeff and his wife Janine travelled to England, where Jeff spent a year completing his Master's degree in Archaeology and Prehistory from the University of Sheffield. His thesis topic was the Viking settlements in Greenland. Jeff still hopes to finish a book in Greenland.

While he was at Sheffield, Jeff decided to write a book about the ghosts of the Pacific Northwest. Unfortunately, Jeff's plans took a detour, when the U.S. Army sent him to Bosnia, where he worked as a Civil Affairs specialist.

Upon returning from Bosnia Jeff began working on his first book of ghosts stories: Ghosts and Strange Critters of Washington and Oregon. He published this book himself, early in 1999. It was followed six months later by his second book: Ghosts, Critters and Sacred Places of Washington and Oregon.

Format: Paperback
It covered a lot of interesting places, but some of the info didn't go very deep. I would have liked to get more background info. Plus, it missed a lot of local places. Overall I was disappointed and didn't even keep the book. Can't remember if I gave it to someone or sent it to the thrift store.

terrible book, don't waste your time, the Author was paid to do it, and apparently he didn't really have an interest, just had to crank out some drivel for a check.
