A Good book of ghost stories....a GREAT book about collecting ghost stories. Dec 5 2013
By David Goodwin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book has 63 stories in it. Most of them are two pages or less in length. Once I had read more than half the book, any particularly chilling detail was quickly followed by a sinking disappointment, as I knew there was probably just a single paragraph left to the story once I turned the page. Often I was right.

I debated rating this 4 out of 5 stars merely on the basis of my own pervasive disappointment. Ghost Stories of Alberta was well written and I enjoyed it. But what I enjoyed more than the ghosts themselves was the excellent sense of the hard work involved in collecting ghost stories.

There are stories from the beginnings of Alberta's settlement right up until the present day (in this case 1993), most of which were personal experiences. Telling someone your very own experience of the supernatural brings up feelings people dont necessarily want to relive, like fear or vulnerability. The author relates her entire story gathering process, so often enough people who wanted to tell her their story changed their minds at the last minute. I enjoyed this clear human element. No story was too small for inclusion.

Incidentally, the follow-up volume had more "meat" to it, so to speak, and i enjoyed it much more. Publishing Ghost Stories of Alberta really brought people out in droves to tell Ms. Smith their stories and I'm very glad they did!
