Scary stories of thrilling survival ... and restless spirits.
Disasters can strike anytime, anywhere, leaving death and destruction in their wake. But what can also be left behind? Ghosts.
In True Hauntings: Deadly Disasters, veteran ghost writer Dinah Williams explores the stories and alleged hauntings of some of the deadliest catastrophes in history, from lost souls left behind in the 2011 Japanese tsunami to a headless ghost frightening miners deep underground.
With historical photos and sidebars that are equal parts educational and terrifying, readers will find that sometimes fact is even scarier than fiction.
This book was a favorite this summer. My daughter and I read it together and looked up the real events to find out more information.
The stories are told in an engaging way even for reluctant readers like my daughter. She was fascinated reading the first tale the most called Have I Died about a tsunami that killed over 6,000 people in 2011. The pictures show the devastation and she was very interested in learning more about the phone booth that is not connected to any wires but visited by thousands who want to talk to those who were killed that day.
Non-Fiction is way scarier than fiction and with Halloween around the corner this fits right in.
I hope they make many more of these books. This is #1.
