Michigan has two beautiful peninsulas that are connected by stories, legends, and mysteries. This book is the perfect glove compartment companion for exploring those paranormal parts of the Mitten State, as most of these hotels, restaurants, theaters, lighthouses, and other places are open to the public. This road trip to "the other side," filled with hauntings, ghost towns, and bizarre tales of murder and mayhem, draws from more than 300 years of Michigan history--from the notoriously haunted remote lighthouses like Seul Choix in the Upper Peninsula to Eloise, one of the most famous psychiatric asylums in America, to the legend of Lover's Leap on Mackinac Island. What Purple Gang member still hangs out in Clare? What spirits lurk at Henry Ford's Greenfield Village? Here is a guide to all that and more, including Houdini's Detroit connections, the poisonings at Cass Corridor's Alhambra, and paranormal activity at Detroit's historic Fort Wayne. Puzzles are still waiting for a solution; Ripley's Believe It or Not! once offered $100,000 to anyone who could solve the strange phenomenon of the Paulding Lights near Watersmeet.

Disappointing submitted by majean on August 2, 2020, 10:20pm There are tons of pictures and locations. The authors did not investigate any of the claims, however, so a lot of debunked stories are repeated.
Will Add a Little Fun to a Roadtrip submitted by KarenNeilFuen on August 4, 2021, 7:41pm This book is by no means an in-depth investigation into any of the ghost legends it describes. But it is a fun compilation of many historic sites in Michigan and some of the creepy tales associated with them.
