Jack Sim presents the long waited second Haunted Site Guide in the Ghost Trails Series – THE GHOSTS OF BOGGO ROAD GAOL: Ghosts and Gallows.
Old Melbourne Gaol, Pentridge, Trial Bay and Maitland – they are nothing compared to Boggo Road. It was the strictest, hardest prison in Australia and a hell of a place to die. Within the red brick walls of Brisbane’s infamous prison dwell some very tormented spirits. Throughout the pages of THE GHOSTS OF BOGGO ROAD GAOL: Ghosts and Gallows you will hear real ghost stories gathered from former inmates and staff, some dating back to the 1930s.
A Warder that still walks the halls on duty, ghostly wails tormenting a murderer as he waits for his death on the Gallows, a Hangman who was haunted by the men he executed and other true spine-chilling stories.
Read Don's review of Bluenose Ghosts here.
Ghosts guarding buried treasure, phantom ships, haunted houses and supernatural warnings of death—these are just some of the strange and mysterious phenomena that you will encounter in Bluenose Ghosts. These unexplained mysteries are all the more chilling because they are based on personal experiences of ordinary people, told to Helen Creighton, one of Canada’s most respected and renowned folklorists, over a period of thirty years. So when the moon is full and the wind is howling, be prepared to be spooked by apparitions and things that go bump in the night. Bluenose Ghosts was an instant hit when it was first published in 1957. This new edition of Bluenose Ghosts features a new foreword from Nova Scotia writer Clary Croft that explores Creighton’s enduring influence on the province’s folklore.
From the Hachette website: "In SPIRIT SISTERS you'll meet Australian women of all ages who share their very personal encounters with the supernatural. From a high-flying banking executive whose life changed for ever after a visit from a bizarre, winged entity, to a mother of seven who was held and soothed by her husband for five days after she'd buried him, to the woman who lost most of her family in one car accident, this book is heart-breaking, inspiring, scary and comforting."
