Okay, let me put this out there before I continue with this review: I’m a scaredy cat, and some of the various tales of hauntings, UFOs etc, had me freaked out. The fact that they are tales the author has gathered from reputable sources around the town of Revelstoke, scared me all the more. There was some historical bumf to give background, and not all the stories were like typical ghost stories, some were actually quiet nice. It wasn’t a book set out to scare you, more to delve into the mystery of Revelstoke. If you live in the area, or know the area, then this may be more appealing to you.
It’s not my normal type of read and took me a little while to get into it, but the author has done a good job of retelling the tales to add to the mystery. There are some unique stories, and some situations that I found hard to believe, but as the author states, he is not out to make the reader believe.
A good deal of research would have gone into this book. If you like to read some mysterious, freaky, unexplainable real life stories, then this is the book for you. It was a fun, easy read.
