Synopsis: In a uniquely entertaining book by a rising star, here are uncanny true tales of haunted highways, weird encounters, and legends of the road.
It may have happened to you; it’s happened to almost everyone who’s ever driven down a highway at night, or in the fog, or snow. Something suddenly appears: a flash of movement, a shadow...what was it? It could be, as the true stories in this book attest, a ghost.
These are true stories from the highways and byways of America. These firsthand accounts are as varied as the storytellers themselves—some are detailed and filled with the terror and suspense that made people feel they had to share what happened to them with others; others are brief and straightforward retellings of truly chilling events.
Here is a chupacabra attack on the desert highway between L.A. and Las Vegas; ghost trains and soldiers; UFOs; the prom girl ghost of Alabama; a demon in Texas, and other accounts of the creepy, scary things that truckers and other drivers and passengers told to editor Annie Wilder.
With so many different stories, Trucker Ghost Stories moves beyond the usual haunted house to offer stories to entice any ghost story reader...and anyone who’s ever wondered....
Review: While people love to be scared by good ghost stories, it’s not so much fun when it happens to you! ‘Trucker Ghost Stories’ contains many tales of spooky and unexplainable encounters with the beyond. Being told in the voices of those who experienced the events gives an even greater chill to the reader. One has to wonder if events like the ones shared in this book are experienced by multiple people, is it a true occurrence or, perhaps, mass hysteria. Some of the stories are silly and some are downright scary, but they all make for a fun read for just you or out loud to a group of friends. Read at your own risk!
