Book Description

A rich history, larger-than-life personalities, and independent spirit make Texas a treasure trove of ghostly lore. This collection, drawn from the deserts of the west to the beaches of the Gulf Shore, includes eerie tales of the spirits that haunt the Alamo, Old Rip the horned toad, UFO sightings in north Texas, the never-ending ride of El Muerto, the ghost on board the USS Lexington, and the watchful specter of Miss Bettie at Galveston's Ashton Villa.
