Spooky Montana

Tales of Hauntings, Strange Happenings and Other Local Lore

Retold by S. E. Schlosser

About two weeks after I arrived in camp, I awoke in the middle of the night feeling a cold breeze piercing my sleeping bag.  I shuddered and then gasped as something huge and heavy suddenly fell on top of me and began to press me down into the mattress.  It covered my whole body.  I tried to breathe, but the darkness smothered my nose and mouth, and the weight made it impossible for me to expand my lungs...

Meet a Montana camp counselor who learns to her peril not to sleep in a haunted camp bed, in this collection of 27 spooky tales.  You will also meet General Custer and the spirits of Native Americans that still roam the battlefield at the Little Bighorn and the spirit of Calamity Jane, still working on her horse ranch on top of a remote butte. And every night at six, a ghost carrying a candle walks through a hallway in Red Lodge, Montana. A great collection to read around the campfire, at Halloween parties, and anytime!
