Ghosts of the Wild West by Nancy Roberts

Book Description

This is the newly expanded compendium of spine-tingling tales of western haunts and horrors.Once deemed the "custodian of the twilight zone" by Southern Living, celebrated storyteller and ghost hunter Nancy Roberts returns to familiar subject matter in this newly expanded edition of her "Ghosts of the Wild West", a finalist for the Spur Award of the Western Writers of America in its original edition.In these seventeen ghostly tales - including five all-new stories - Roberts expertly guides readers through eerie encounters and harrowing hauntings across Kansas, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas. Along the way, her accounts intersect with the lives (and afterlives) of legendary figures such as Wild Bill Hickok, Wyatt Earp, Bat Masterson, and Doc Holliday.Roberts also justifies the fascination among ghost hunters, folklorists, and interested tourists with notoriously haunted locales like Deadwood, Tombstone, and Abilene through her tales of paranormal legends linked to these gunslinger towns synonymous with violence and vice in western lore. But not all of these encounters feature frightening specters or wandering souls. Roberts also details episodes of animal spirits, protective presences, and supernatural healings. Forever destined to be associated with adventure, romance, and risktaking, the Wild West of yore still haunts the American imagination. Roberts reminds us here that our imaginations aren't the only places where restless ghosts still roam.
