    What is it about the McBride House that serves as a beacon to the dead? Built in the oldest town in Oklahoma by physician George McBride in 1895, this Victorian home is rife with ghosts from the past. Ghostly parties at 2:00 a.m., spirits calling family members and houseguests by name, dolls that talk even after the batteries have been removed...The Back family has been subjected to impossibly bright lights, loud crashing noises, weird shrieks—even ominous odors such as decaying matter.

    Each ghost in the McBride House has a personality of its own, including one entity whose antics are downright terrifying. But instead of fleeing, the Back family remained and gradually got to know their "spirited" residents.

    This is their story.

In fact, she says, Martha's Vineyard is America's most haunted island. -

    This book takes a revealing look into the lives of average, everyday people from across the country who’ve had experiences in the realm of the unexplained. Whether you're a true believer in ghosts or a hard-nosed skeptic, you're sure to get a chill or two when you read about:
    • The woman who was visited by her grandfather…on the night of his funeral!
    • The man who was forced to move by a troublesome spirit…only to find it had followed him!
    • The woman who was attacked while jogging near a cemetery…by an invisible assailant!

    As you make your way through these genuinely spooky stories, you'll probably find that ghostly encounters are a lot more common than you had imagined. Could there be a “haunted house” in your town? Perhaps on your very street? Maybe even right next door? - MA
