BeschreibungMysterious cold spots, disembodied voices, and smoky apparitions are just a few of the ghostly goings-on gathered by journalist Jason Offutt in his trek across Missouri. Visiting public places such as Civil War battlefields, university halls, and infamous mansions, Offutt draws from hundreds of interviews in his search for restless spirits. A serious but witty look at Missouri's place in the ghostly realm, this book brings together history, folklore, and just enough mystery to intrigue the skeptics and delight the believers.
