Spooky Yellowstone

He looked up towards the Crows Nest, far above, and saw a glowing figure in a white wedding gown slowly descending the stairs from the Crows Nest. Tucked under its arm was a tousle-curled, wide-eyed head! Frozen with horror, the man watched the bride descend the steps and float along the corridor…

“The Headless Bride” from Spooky Yellowstone

Welcome to Yellowstone National Park, the place where ghosts walk! Pull up a chair or gather round the campfire and get ready for creepy tales of ghostly hauntings, eerie happenings, and other strange occurrences under starry skies. A phantom bellman assists a woman with her luggage; a picnicker has lunch with a ghost; a park ranger encounters a Sasquatch; a young man faces an ancient wilderness spirit of the Bear, and so much more.   

This collection of Yellowstone ghost stories ranges from mysterious to leave-the-light-on scary.  Whether read around the campfire on a dark and stormy night or from the backseat of the family van on the way to grandma’s, this is a collection to treasure.

So, is the Yellowstone Nation Park really haunted?  You bet.
