Around two years ago, after seeing my "ghost pictures" from one of my blogs, the Barberton Historical Society e-mailed me about adding my story to their new book. This is the second book that they have published about ghosts in Barberton, Ohio. Each book is kept at a 1,000 copy run and the proceeds go toward restoration to historic structures in Barberton.
Needless to say, I was very happy to have them include my story in their new book. Actually, they endded up using two of my stories.
The book, "Ghosts Along the Tuscarawas" is written by Steve Kelleher and Jessica King. It includes 38 stories of ghostly activities in Barberton's history. There are many, many old photos of Barberton and even a couple of actual ghost pictures.
For anyone who is interested in ghosts and the supernatural, this is a must read. But it is also a great book if your interested in history and live in or around the Barberton, Ohio area. The stories in the book are all actual true historical account of Barberton with the ghostly tales mixed in in just the right order.
The book is hard bound and contains 213 pages that will keep you reading and wanting to know more. Each story is around 3 to 4 pages long. So it's a great "travel" book to read on the plane or bus or as a auto passenger during a long drive.
This blog contains my stories only. For the others, you will have to order the book. The price is $19.95 each plus $2.00 shipping in the U.S.A. If this subject is of interest to you, you have to add this book to your reading library. But remember, there is only 1,000 copies printed and they do sell out fast. The first addition was sold out in a matter of a few weeks. So hurry! It makes a great gift also.
Read my stories from the book. Then go to the bottom of this blog for ordering information and a link to the Barberton Historical Society's website which also has other great books to offer.
