Pull up a chair or gather round the campfire and get ready for thirty creepy tales of ghostly hauntings, eerie happenings, and other strange occurrences in Pennsylvania. Set in the Keystone State’s big cites, rural communities, rugged mountains, and vast woodlands, the stories in this entertaining and compelling collection will have readers looking over their shoulders again and again.

Pennsylvania’s folklore is kept alive in these expert retellings by master storyteller S. E. Schlosser and in artist Paul Hoffman’s evocative illustrations. Readers will meet the phantom drummer of Valley Forge, cheer on the ghost who haunts a bowling alley in Allentown, search for the mysterious jail cell handprint in Carbon County, and feel an icy wind on the back of their necks on a warm Pennsylvania evening. 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.
