Though ghosts from the Pacific Northwest can be as mean as the next ghost-breaking glass, waking sleepers, and scaring people out of house and home-they are generally a pretty jolly bunch. One ghost in Ellensburg, Washington chaperones his granddaughter and her boyfriend to make sure there is no funny business. Another keeps the owners of a drugstore in Steilacoom, Washington on their toes-he knocks expensive items like "Secret Salmon Sauce" off the shelves to protest the new yuppie fare. Containing over one hundred stories from Oregon, Washington, and British Colombia, as well as comprehensive notes and motif, subject, and location indices, this ghostly gazetteer will reassure those who think they are the only ones with a ghost in the house. These scary stories are filled with ghosts, graveyards and important messages. Readers will learn the importance of courage and resourcefulness.
