The locations are various and plenty of history: hotels, houses, taverns, hospitals, colleges, gaols, bridges, fields, roads, caves, farms and others. Reading the book, you will wish to visit these haunted places.
Many of these places have been visited by the author and she tells her experiences. Furthermore, the book includes a beautiful cover, many interesting color photos and a bibliography at the end. There is also a chapter about UFOs.
My favourite tales are: Shields Tavern, Forced to Move, The Peyton Randolph House, Market Square Tavern, Creepy Crawford Road, Nelson House, Rosewell Plantation and The Cohoke Light.
Recommended reading for paranormal not fiction book lovers.
In this book Pamela tells true stories and those of myth and legend. She writes of apparitions and unusual sightings, such as Bigfoot and UFOs. Pamela tells well known tales and some little known tales of this area. All of the tales are in or near this historic "haunted triangle" in Virginia.
The reader is taken on a tour of haunted plantations and houses, down historic haunted roads and across legendary bridges. Pamela tells the story of each place, elaborating on it by adding her own experiences and impressions.
The photography throughout the book is amazing in color and detail. Pamela Kinney is thorough in taking the reader on her journey through time in this historic area. She has written other paranormal books and is a master costumer, as well. She can be found on both her own website and Facebook.
From hotels with unregistered guests to lonely battlefields where the spirits of fallen confederate soldiers still fight or search for their way home, Ms. Kinney takes the reader on a fascinating tour of one of Virginia's most history-rich areas. As in the previous books of her Haunted series, she tells us where spirits roam, who they are presumed to be, and sometimes, why they can't rest.
Virginia's Historic Triangle was home to some of America's first settlers. Life in Jamestown in 1607 was difficult, and the colonists had to fight both Indians and starvation. Either means of death would have been cruel, and may explain why spectral figures are seen there today. Many of the old plantations in Charles City County are haunted. Ms. Kinney relates the history and stories surrounding these fascinating homes and her own experiences when she visited each location. The College of William and Mary is the second oldest college in the U.S. Its long history is rich, and stories of sighting apparitions have been passed down from student to student.
Whether you're a history buff or ghost chaser, Virginia's Haunted Historic Triangle is a must read. Plan to bring it with you when you visit Virginia. Follow Ms. Kinney's trail through Colonial Williamsburg, visit Revolutionary War and Civil War battle sites in Yorktown and hear the sounds of drums and fifes, meet the ghosts of Rosewell Plantation in Gloucester. Or if you can't visit the haunted locations yourself, see them through the author's eyes. You'll enjoy your trip immensely. - By Kathleen Mix, a Virginia reader
