From Our Editors
Alberta scares many people and not just vegetarians. Barbara J. Smith asks: What is that gentle tapping on the window? Is it just a branch, swayed by a chinook? Unnerving stories from all over Alberta will keep you glancing nervously out the window, checking under the bed, behind closet doors and in the basement. More Ghost Stories of Alberta takes readers to haunted houses, reveals long dead relatives walking again and poltergeists trashing public buildings. You'll look at this Western province in a whole new way after reading this book.
