Warning: These stories will make you bolt your doors and sleep with the lights on. Beloved as a pastoral paradise by weekenders and vacationers, beautiful Warwick, New York, is a historic town that boasts of bucolic dairy farms, gingerbread Victorian homes, and winding back roads that lead to scenic hamlets and villages. An artists community has grown up in the area, inspired by the natural beauty of the surroundings. However, all is not perfect in this seeming Paradise. In fact, many of the numerous bed and breakfasts that dot the valley are home to ghosts, as are a number of area restaurants. On investigation, author Donna Reis uncovers more than 60 firsthand encounters with the supernatural. She recounts the chilling tales as told to her by more than 100 Warwick Valley residents. The spirits explored in these pages range from the benevolent who come to bid a loved one good=bye or relay a message before going to the other side, to tormented spirits who died tragically and are caught in a struggle to find closure, to poltergeists and vengeful Native American ghosts released when their graves were disrupted. This is a spine chiller for anyone who revels in a good ghost story, and an excellent tour for spirit chasers looking for haunted sites to visit.
IN the Victorian era, sensational ghost stories were headline news. Spine-chilling reports of two-headed phantoms, murdered knights and spectral locomotives filled the pages of the press. Spirits communicated with the living at dark seances, forced terrified families to flee their homes and caused superstitious workers to down their tools at the haunted mines. This book contains more than fifty hair-raising - and in some cases, comical - real life accounts from Wales, dating from 1837 to 1901. Unearthed from newspaper archives, they include chilling prophecies from beyond the grave, poltergeists terrorising the industrial communities, and more than a few ingenious hoaxes along the way.
