Handbook to Ghosts, Poltergeists, and Haunted Houses

Ghosts . . . are they real spirits or just the stuff of scary stories? Scientists have yet to find any evidence spirits of the dead exist in our world, yet many people believe they do. Whatever our opinions, legends of ghosts, poltergeists, and hauntings exist in many cultures. At times helpful, at times terrifying, ghosts have a fearful grip on our imaginations.

School Library Journal - Margaret Bush, Simmons College, Boston

"Besides acknowledging the long, wide appeal of these mysterious creatures, places, and events in human history, these “quick reference guides” cover long ago and recent and far and near occurrences. . . .Evenhanded in the matters of belief and believability, the texts include a few hoaxes and always state that there is no scientific evidence proving the existence of any of these paranormal subjects. However, they don’t discount the possibilities either. Concluding multiple choice questions test readers’ recall of facts. Good overviews for collections that need additional materials on these popular topics." - School Library Journal
