The latest in the bestselling series of Americana occult folklore collections that have included Haunted America and Historic Haunted America, Haunted Heritage brings together yet another amazing collection of spectral tales from all across the United States and Canada.The tales-based on interviews, public records, and family histories-reach from coast-to-coast in the United States and Canada. Some involve famous families (such as that of American patriot Nathan Hale), and some, famous events (such as the Battle of Little Big Horn). Some are gentle and benevolent (a family member watching over his/her descendants), other vengeful and disruptive (the unresting souls of the wrongfully dead).

Michael Norman and Beth Scott were two of the earliest chroniclers of American ghostlore, right before the amateur paranormal investigator craze flooded the market with poorly written and researched accounts of "investigations." You could say they are a bridge between the traditional folklorist and the more modern paranormal writer. This book is exclusively devoted to North American ghost stories (although Canada is poorly represented) and is kinda organized like a shotgun blast: Sometimes by region, but other times by category, like ghost stories from colleges, spook lights, and "damp things." Still, an excellent collection of tales.

This book was a really good light (a few stories made me want to keep the lights on) read and worth the money paid. I thought though that the some of the stories seemed too fantastic and unbelievable (Devil House), but then a good part of me is still skeptical about this kind of phenomena.

This was a gift item. It was in the expected condition and arived in a timely manor.
The latest in the Haunted America series was the first offering I had the pleasure to read. It will not be the last. This is a collection of "True Accounts" of hauntings and other suernatural occurances.
Having stated what this nonfictio work is "about", let me hastily add it is much more than the sum of its parts. That is "Haunted Heritage" is a collection of ghost stories, that is much more than a collection of ghost stories.
Each spooky anecdote provides some background of a biographical and/or historical nature providing readers with a context for the ghostly tales contained therein. This aspect is what makes the volume worthwhile reading, I am sure everyone knows many ghost stories told around campfires etc, but it is who the ghosts were when they were alive that adds immediacy and intimicy to this book.
One of my favourite chapters ( and I use that term loosely as they are more geographical/topical dividers than traditional chapters.) States how the art of the oral tradition of storytelling is a dying art, a pretty obvious tradition, yet reading it stated so baldly in this type of work really brought the point home.
The other bonus is that while these tales cover a large timescale from 1600s to present, and everything from the mysterious to the outrageous the authors' report without editorilizing the stories this repeats.
On one personal note I am not sure if trying to finish it to review for halloween, or a subtle change in author's tone is responsible but about three quarters of the way through I was genuinely spooked by what I read.
Please leave lights on when devouring this latest offering in series.
