VERY SCARCE Stories from all states More than 700 true stories A first for Australia Great for armchair or actual travel Tour information A wonderful, spooky, funny read From the Min Min lights of the outback to angry convicts and kind grey nurses, Australia is teeming with souls who, it seems, have not quite departed this earthly life. You’ll meet them all in this wonderful collection of more than 700 true ghost stories gathered first-hand and from reported sources in 500 locations across Australia, from Cape York to Port Arthur and Sydney to Perth. Whether they are spooky, vengeful, kind, wistful, mournful, aloof or amusing, there’s one thing you can be sure of– they’re there, and they’re in your suburb or country corner if you have the courage to look. Presented geographically for ease of reference, the stories cover all kinds of buildings and locations, both public and private. Where appropriate the author includes information about how to approach any spectre you might meet. Covering the entire period of European settlement, from colonial times right up to the present day, this first-of-its-kind national guidebook makes delightful– if hair-raising– armchair reading, and is a must-have companion in your travels around the country.

Presented geographically for ease of reference, the stories cover all kinds of buildings and locations, both public and private. Where appropriate the author includes information about ghost tours you might want to join, and even gives advice about how to approach any spectre you might meet. pp. xvi, 432 p. ; 21 cm. #211221
