Description

In the tradition of their "The Haunting of the Presidents", national bestselling authors Joel Martin and William J. Birnes write "The Haunting of America: From the Salem Witch Trials to Harry Houdini", the only book to tell the story of how paranormal events influenced and sometimes even drove political events. Birnes, a "New York Times" bestselling writer and famed host of the History Channel's "UFO Hunters", and Martin, co-author of several books on psychic phenomena, including the national bestseller "We Don't Die", bring unparalleled expertise to this narrative retelling of American history. Together, the authors examine the political history of the United States through the lens of the paranormal. They unearth the roots of America's fascination with the ghosts, goblins, and demons that possess our imaginations and nightmares.
