The first person accounts of strange encounters on the highways and byways of America.
I have always enjoyed reading first person accounts of scary, creepy, supernatural experiences. This book is no exception. There’s a therapeutic aspect of sharing your story. It makes you realize you aren’t crazy and you’re not the only one who has experienced something along those lines.
Annie Wilder gives a voice to all the authors included in the book. Through the stories, we find commonality.
In Part 1, Just Plain Weird, my favorite is Skinwalker in Arizona. I’ve heard of Skinwalkers, but this tale gave such a vivid description. The story is from a Navajo reservation and it’s creepy to say the least.
I also liked Hat Man on the Montreal Bridge. I got willies reading it, so freaky.
In Part 2, Messages and Assistance from the Spirit World – I am a firm believer in assistance from above or from loved ones who have passed on. It’s a very comforting thought. The Man in the Rain was my favorite from this section. At the perfect time, the author is offered help.
Part 3 Haunted Highways: Legends of the Road my favorites are both of the Highway 666 stories.
Part 4 Time Slips. My favorite is Ghost Ship in the Fog. The title speaks for itself. I also liked The Wall which was about seeing and speaking with a military man long dead.
Overall, it’s a great, fun read. I find it easier to read than novels because you don’t have to become invested in the characters.
If you’re looking for a book for your boyfriend or husband, this fits the bill. Or if you don’t mind having the crap scared out of you, this book is for you!
