This anthology of alleged hauntings in the Wild West was enjoyably spooky as a whole, more so than some of the other books in the collection that I've read. Many of the stories contained within are unusual and suspenseful tales, and the storytelling itself is great. The author made his narrations engaging and personable, yet very informative. Reading it felt almost like listening to ghost stories around a campfire, except in text form.

Yet another excellent book that serves the west and her stories of ghosts well.

In the same way, terrifying old west ghosts meant to frighten children and cowboys alike refuse to die, living on to horrify us today and give us brand new, unexpected nightmares. The Native Americans of the old west often passed on several of their legends and beliefs to frontiersmen, and from that often spawned legends. One particularly ghostly tale has to do with a small bird, appropriately titled the Death Bird.

I am very happy with my purchase. It came as a used book but I think it was brand new and never read before. This was a gift for my husband and it was such a pleasurable thing for him to receive.

it is another good ghost story, you never believe some of these stories but they are true, the way some of those people had to live.

I enjoy reading "true account" ghost stories and would enjoy writing fictional accounts somewhat in the style of Holzer. When I ran across several books by Dan Asfar, I decided to read three of them to give me some ideas.
Ghost Stories of the Old West (as also Ghost Stories of the Civil War, and Haunted Highways) is in the style of recent TV series on haunting and the paranormal. They are short, often second or third hand, and often very vague. Many, especially those from the Civil War and early west, are more in the nature of folk tales, round-the-campfire-ghost stories, or urban legends. Several of the latter type are stories that I have read in other anthologies, the Inn at Mile 108 which narrates the tale of a larcenous and murderous inn-keeper, being a case in point. The only new thing introduced in this story was its setting in Canada, which information I had not heard prior to its recitation in this book.
In general Mr. Asfar has a good narrative style, although he does occasionally stoop to pure sentimentality, as he does in this book in The Ghost of Catherine Sutler and the Ghost of Elizabeth Polly. He creates a mood and a history for his tales, often teaching the reader a little about the founding of some of the towns of the old west. Some of the stories are set in places where the haunted sites are open to the public, most notably the Bird Cage Theater in Tombstone, Arizona. It makes one want to make a special stop!
Although I doubt that anyone reading them will feel any great apprehension, Mr. Asfar's tales do make for a fun afternoon.

I am in total awe to have an author such as Dan Asfar put what I told him into a story that brings to light the Ghosts of Tombstone and what might possibly may become yet another true ghost town for sure.

Yet another excellent book that serves the west and her stories of ghosts well. I am hoping the more that read this book the more will get to places like Tombstone, Bodie and the Black Hills to visit Seth Bullock. Most certainly the Yuma State Pen as this is slowly but surely fading into the dust. Your tourism dollars are well spent when visiting as the younger generations are more interested in video games than stories such as this ...until...they read or are told your stories...

Thanks Dan, you turned my pile of written stories into my dream come true. The Ghosts of Tombstone thank you for the attention as well!
