Ghost Stories from the Far North|
They are watching us, these ghosts of the North.
They cook breakfast, play cards, mine gold, turn on radios, and play the piano.
HAUNTED ALASKA is a collection of ghost stories that will raise the hair on the back of your neck. These astonishing stories tell of miners terrorized by spirits wandering their claims, of roadhouse owners visited daily by ghosts, and of reindeer herders who run in fear as one of their own departed comes back in spirit form to continue his duties after death.
" 'When my company took over Circle Hots Springs Lodge, people could hardly wait to tell me about the ghosts,' said owner Susan Knapman. These included the fur coat hanging on a wall in the basement that reached out and touched people, things flying off shelves, and a ghost who was apparently unhappy with the way things were run in the kitchen. One night during the winter, a worker looked outside and saw the ghostly image of a man playing a piano. It was 50 below zero! Knapman herself lost sleep several nights when something kept knocking on her door. But no one was there."
