Book Description

June 7 2001 Ghost Stories (Lone Pine)
Enjoy this spooky romp through a world of restless spirits, from the ghost who warns hikers in the Cascades about a dangerous path, to the phantoms that roam the Seattle Underground. You'll read a fascinating account about a man wrongly lynched near Rockford. He swears revenge on the drunken vigilantes who strung him up--and they each die screaming. Another story tells of the spirits that ring the bells in the tower of Tacoma's Old City Hall--even after the bells have been made unusable.

1.0 out of 5 stars Better Stories heard around a campfire July 21 2006
By Patranella - Published on Amazon.com
I thought this would be quirky and interesting book to read. Unfortunately, there's virtually no research to validate any story. There's the story of the family who "try as I might, I could not learn the true identity" that got a great deal on a house (because it was haunted of course). Then there are the stories where a couple of months later a neighbor filled them in on the old lady who used to live there, etc. etc.

I've heard scarier (and better documented) stories around the campfire as a girlscout. If these stories were circulating around the web site, I'm sure they would be revealed as 'urban legends'.

There are much more interesting and better researched paranormal and ghost stories out there than this book represents.
5.0 out of 5 stars I learned that my native state has some interesting stories June 4 2012
By Amanda - Published on Amazon.com
I've lived in the state of Washington since the day I was born. Reading this book, I've learned some interesting things about this state that I did not learn in the textbooks I've read in middle and high school. I recommend Ghost Stories of Washington to anyone who likes true ghost stories and want to learn about the ghosts that call the state of Washington home.

2.0 out of 5 stars Ghost Summaries July 16 2010
By Bitsy Bling Books - Published on Amazon.com
A great number of interesting historical sites are named in the book including the ghost tales that accompany them. As a tourist interested in the paranormal, this is a comprehensive guide to some of the most worthwhile places and areas to visit in the state. Also, many of the excerpts may spark further interest in certain lore and would work well to jump start or inspire several novel-type tales.

If you enjoy reading 230 pages of summary, this is the book for you. Although packed with a number of featured places, the details are short and read like a briefing or `account' rather than actually providing chilling or original insight. Each section contains fairly common information that can be obtained through minimal research. I was hoping for more compelling and possibly goose bump raising stories that give some facts or debunking of the paranormal. Instead, it reads more like a quick campfire story. Spook factor is minimal.

4.0 out of 5 stars Simple yet enjoyable local tales March 23 2008
By Marietta - Published on Amazon.com
My 10 yr old son and I were able to enjoy this book together...it's not too scary, yet it's still interesting to read. We are not native to the Seattle area, so it was fun to read about ghosts in towns and places we have visited or passed through on trips. This is NOT a hardcore scary ghost story book, but it is still interesting in its own way.
