Haunted Homeland is a comprehensive collection of true ghostly tales, not penned by fictioneers such as Poe and King, but passed on by word of mouth and preserved by memory as windows to our nation's haunted past.

From a haunted castle in the wilds of Alaska to phantom clergymen in the southwest and mysterious bouncing lights on the east coast, this latest volume covers the places, the people, and the things that belong to the earthbound realm of the fantastic.

Norman has gathered together spectral events of all kinds: apparitions of the famous like Mary Surratt, Mary Todd Lincoln, and Mad Anthony Wayne, haunted crime scenes in Chicago and along the Indiana byways, as well as banshees, poltergeists, and even a ghost named George who has become an accepted resident in a North Carolina home.

These anecdotes are not the stuff of imaginary nightmares, but of tales of personal encounters with the haunted parts of America.

  • I have read all of Michael Norman's books including those he co-wrote with the late Beth Scott. I had enjoyed many of their books as told with a folklore style. However, I was sorely disappointed in Haunted Homeland. Unlike the others which were arranged either by state, region or some locale and told in an entertaining folklore style giving a good accounting of the history and the story of paranormal events, usually good old ghost stories. Haunted Homeland deviated from that in that this very long tedious book. It seemed to have no logical grouping of stories, just a mish mash thrown together. The stories themselves ranged from a few paragraphs to a dozen pages or so. All the stories were anecdotal with some having no sense to be included as they really didn't seem to tell a story at all, just a brief event and then just ending leaving me bewildered. Others meandered with far too much useless information given on the details of a house or family history with no relevance to the ghost story at hand. I thought it would take me forever to finish this boring book. For me, this is the end to my reading this "Haunted" series.

  • excellent Highly Recommend

  • The book is interesting and scary in places. Would recommend this book for entertainment. Thank you.

  • This book is mainly a collection of folklore rather than an attempt at scientific documentation of ghosts. The stories are related in a "storytelling" style intended to entertain more than inform, with lots of embellished detail bordering on fiction.

    I found some of the stories mildly interesting, although overall the book was a slow read for me and I kinda forced myself to finish it.

  • Little (if anything) new or original, much less personally investigated by the author here, from what I could tell. Of course, I didn't read past the first few chapters because I was so disappointed in this book. Anybody with access to a libray of old ghost stories and legends could have churned it out. Don't waste your money. I hate to rate any book this low, but I feel this one is nothing but an attempt to separate people who collect ghost books from their money.

  • I checked out the book as I have a strong interest in one ghost mentioned, a Col Graham who was killed in Rosita. Someone did not do their research. He was a former Brevet Major, not a Colonel. He was not killed on a bridge. There is not a bridge anywhere remotely near where he was killed. No contemporary reports talk about him having a sword.
    It made me question the validity of the entire book. Readers are never sure where these stories come from as the authors almost never source them.

  • What a disappointment. I wonder if the majority of "Haunted Homeland" stories were rejects from the earlier books research?

  • Its a road map to the other side. Take a left at the Cemetery. Go Down Highway 666 until you hit a dead end. Then your there. Haunted Homeland Is a Very Good Read. I have read all of Michael Norman's Books, and I must say he is the best in this field of study.
