have their myths and legends, the USA has it s haunted history.For any Rhode Islander, transplanted or otherwise, or anyone who is just interested in New England s haunted tales, and the state of

good read for a chilly Autumn day I love to poke around creepy old places rich with history and legend Little did I know so many places were quite frankly, right in my own backyard Before reading this

ideaThis book is going in my glove box, I have lotsexploring to do I thought this book was going to be ghost stories Granted there are a few developed ghost legends in RI but most of the book consists of ghosts of ghost stories, a light is seen in a certain house, an orb is seen floating through a grave yard The good part of the book is each story has the location and direction to the site so you can go see the spectral coffin floating down the river at midnight if you wish. The writing could have been better, it was a lot of is it haunted no proof but check it out anyway Still gonna check some of the places out but he was n t very convincing.
