Back cover copy

Twenty-eight spine-chilling tales of spirited lights Lighthouses have always existed outside the realm of normal day-to-day human experience. Is it any wonder, then, that their keepers' spirits--not to mention those of sailors drowned in shipwrecks and mothers searching for children lost in tragic accidents--sometimes remain behind? Through twenty-eight of the scariest ghost stories you are ever likely to encounter, Haunted Lighthouses takes you to the edge of reality and beyond. You'll read these stories and more: - Maryland's Lighthouse Lady: Ann Davis kept the light at Point Lookout shining through storms for more than thirty years. So complete was her dedication that she refused to retire even in death.- 1900 Hurricane Victims Crying for Help: When Gulf breezes blow harder than usual, Bolivar Point Lighthouse near Galveston, Texas, wails, perhaps to lament the thousands who died there more than acentury ago.- Sarah's Missing Stomach: When fog shrouds California's central coast, a mysterious visitor appears beside the gallery rail at the top of the Pigeon Point Lighthouse. According to legend, the ghost, that of a wealthy widow murdered more than a century ago, is not entirely whole.show more
