Product Description

From the Back Cover

Howling hauntings from the raw mountain passes and wind-stripped plains of the Old West

The Old West is filled with enough phenomenal happenings, curious mysteries, and ghastly ghosts to send chills up and down any spine. Haunted Old West is the petrifyingly perfect collection for campfire gatherings and makes an eerily ideal guide for a ghost-hunting trip to the Old West. In these pages explore horror-filled mine shafts and outrun herds of stampeding spectral cattle. Stumble upon a supernatural saloon, investigate ghost towns teeming with residents of the afterlife, and feel phantom freight trains pass through your body. Haunted Old West provides the inside story on some of the most actively haunted spots in the great American West, including:

Ghostly Garnet: In summer, visitors frequent this best-preserved ghost town in Montana, but it is winter when Garnet truly comes alive.

Raucous music can be heard within the Kelly Saloon, and the blacksmith’s ringing anvil punctuates the sounds of a busy 1880s street scene. Yes indeed, Garnet puts the “ghost” in ghost town.
Bandit Ghoul of Six Mile Canyon: Respected businessman by day, bandit gang leader by night, Big Jack Davis amasses a fortune robbing trains, stagecoaches, and bullion wagons in 1860s Nevada. Shot in the back while robbing a stagecoach, Big Jack is now a shrieking white demon, flapping wings sprouted from his wounds and driving off anyone who gets too close to his buried loot.

4.0 out of 5 stars Spooky Haunts of the West Jan. 9 2014
By Cowboys - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
From the windswept plains to the piney woods and mountain snowcaps, the Old West is full of history -- and, inevitably that means ghost stories. We highly reccommend Matthew Mayo's excellent Haunted Old West: Phantom Cowboys, Spirit-Filled Saloons, Mystical Mine Camps, and Spectral Indians (2012, Globe Pequot Press), an excellent and spine-tinging read.

Pretty good read. Lots of details about where, who, when and how. I don't like ghosts but after reading this, I wouldn't mind visiting some of these places. In daylight, of course.
