This is book number 1 in the Ghost Stories series.
Enjoy this spooky romp through a world of restless spirits, from the ghost who warns hikers in the Cascades about a dangerous path, to the phantoms that roam the Seattle Underground. You'll read a fascinating account about a man wrongly lynched near Rockford. He swears revenge on the drunken vigilantes who strung him up--and they each die screaming. Another story tells of the spirits that ring the bells in the tower of Tacoma's Old City Hall--even after the bells have been made unusable.
