    Interesting book. Many of the stories I had heard before, but this book often had more details or a different twist on the story. Since I live in Western Maryland and know the places referred to in the book, it was fun finding out the background and stories about these places.

    I really enjoyed this book. I live in the area and it is fascinating to read these stories of lore and to know that they were written up in the local newspapers. The author explained the stories behind these lores and the most recent sightings.
