A Ghost Hunter's Guide to the Most Haunted Houses in America by Terrance Zepke
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
A Ghost Hunter's Guide to the Most Haunted Houses in America by Terrance Zepke (book #2 in Most Haunted Series) is definitely a stand alone book. This is a no-nonsense book that gives places, history, story, and how to (if allowed to) see it and/or contact information so you can go to their individual sites for more information and tickets.
This is a go-to book for anyone planning a 'haunted vacation' since locations are given. It even tells if there are night tours, private tours, and sleep-overs. While it is great for travelers to see where to go or even if they are interested in stopping there to begin with. Some people may not want to possibly meet ghosts who are known for physically touching living people, they may feel better with a ghost who has not been known for physical contact and are just seen or heard instead.
Reading the history and what happened is not only entertaining in a creepy sort of way but it is educational. Not only was the history of the house given but a history of the people/family who built/lived in it so when the events are explained, it all makes sense. In other words, it doesn't just list a house and say a family was killed there, much more detail is given but in a short, factual way. The descriptions were great and easy to understand what was being said, even about the 'staircase to a nowhere.' What's even better is that some photos are included so reading about and understanding it goes to a whole new level with seeing photos of it.
The book is really to the point, informative, and it isn't just for travelers, this is for anyone who likes hearing and learning about haunted houses.
