CHICAGO HAUNTS:
Ghostly Lore of the Windy City
&
MORE CHICAGO HAUNTS:
Scenes From Myth and Memory

Author: Ursula Bielski
From ruthless gangsters to restless mail order kings, from the Fort Dearborn Massacre to the St. Valentine's Day Massacre, the phantom remains of the passionate people and volatile events of Chicago history have made the Second City second to none in the annals of American ghostlore.
Chicago. A town with a past. A people haunted by its history in more ways than one. A "windy city" with tales to tell . . .
Chicago Haunts

With the first edition of Chicago Haunts, Bielski captured 160 years of Chicago's haunted history in the first volume ever devoted to this intriguing subject. Combining lively storytelling with in-depth historical research, exclusive interviews, and insights from parapsychology, she penned a unique and fascinating exploration of the region's supernatural folklore.

Now in this revised edition, Bielski has expanded on many of the original stories, presenting dozens of new firsthand accounts and a compelling new theory about the real Resurrection Mary. Join her armchair expedition through haunted cemeteries, forest preserves, homes, churches, schools, military sites, and restaurants in search of Chicago's favorite phantoms.
