Haunted Heritage: A Definitive Collection of North American Ghost Stories Reviews

    Most of the stories were repeats from his other books.

    I tend to read more than one book at a time and that is one reason that I appreciate this book; it is divided into categories of hauntings, and the stories are usually short enough to read a section at a time. I can put it down and come back to it anytime. However, it is difficult to put down--the stories are intriguing. So much so, that I find myself wanting to research some of them to find out more or view photos (if any exist). The best part of Haunted Heritage are the stories themselves. Michael Norman's style of writing is haunting, as if someone is sitting with you telling a ghost story. I can't read it at night if I am alone. These are some good ghost stories!!! I highly recommend this to you if you enjoy reading haunted tales.

    I think what I like most about "true" haunting books, is the history you learn about the areas, that are haunted. If I ever got into the supernatural field, I'd probably be the one who researched everything. This is not your stay awake all night you're too afraid to sleep ghost stories. Just some great history and documented haunted locations. I got a little bored with all the mysterious lights locations in the world, and really believe that 90% of that has a scientific explanation we haven't discovered yet. But still fun read, and I enjoyed it.

    I don't know what I was thinking, I wanted a book that gave me chills but wasn't as scary as The Shining (which I was too scared to read past page 80). This book made me roll my eyes. I read all about the family of Nathan Hale and the haunting part? It was about two sentences that said someone heard footsteps once and no one could say what had caused them. Lame-o! This book should be called Heritage with the Littlest Bit of Stupid Ghost Stories Thrown In.

    A pretty good read for a few spine tingles. Some of the writing is a bit clunky and some of "stories" are only a paragraph long, however, where the book really shines and becomes intriguing are the stories that run several pages. Here is where you get a good historical background along with eyewitness accounts. Overall, the Haunted series has been a fun read but due to the inclusion of repeat stories in some of the books I would look for these used or on sale rather than pay full price.

    This took too long to read, but not because it was boring. All the pressure I felt to finish it by a stupid deadline, which was governed by those damn reading challenges took all the enjoyment out of the story.I'm pretty sure that NEXT year (xx) I'll be refusing the reading challenge. I read to enjoy myself not to feel like I'm at work and racing against the clock to get things done.

    This one was not nearly as good as the authors' Haunted Historic America. The stories were organized in a haphazard way, and some of the stories don't merit being included in the book. It's as if the authors wanted to cram in every haunted story they'd ever heard.

    This is my favorite book in the Haunted America series by Norman and his late co author, Ms Scott. It also marks the first appearance of ghost hunter and now published author Michael Renegar, ion 2 chapters, one called The Story Man!

    To be honest, I can't remember if I liked this book because I read it when it first came out 13 years ago. I do remember that I was excited to find a ghost book at the airport gift shop though. That alone earns it a solid 3 stars.

    Had to sleep with the light on while reading this book, but otherwise I enjoyed it and learned some historical facts along the way. If I had to choose the creepiest it would have to be "Something Evil on Larabee Street" page 179.

    This book really embraces the folklore and story-telling of times past, but with current testimony and documentation as the stories unfold. Good Read for travel.

    scares the crap out of me every time I read it. Mostly because I always get the urge to read it around Halloween.

    I wanted to read this before Halloween. It's a history book/ book of ghost stories combination. So far so good...

    Another in the long line of ghost story collections by Michael Norman and Beth Scott, in my opinion the most important "ghost authors" of the last 30 years (only rivaled by Holzer).
