Haunted History of the United States- School Library Journal

A well-written, informative series providing detailed historical background about notable American sites alleged to be very haunted. Each volume opens with an anecdote about a personal encounter and outlines a variety reasons people believe in ghosts. Rational, natural, psychological, and/or scientific explanations are given for phenomena individuals have experienced that may seem like evidence. Some volumes discuss ghost-hunting tools used by investigators. The series is visually appealing, with atmospheric photos and illustrations that lend a good sense of place. Fact boxes and sidebars provide additional information. Student activities for comprehension and critical thinking, and resources for learning more drive readers to the publisher’s website. Back matter includes a glossary and an index, a bibliography, and additional digital resources. ­VERDICT A fine series recommended for school libraries. The textbooklike features might detract from its appeal as pleasure reading.
