About this product
- DescriptionNew England abounds with unnerving ghost stories and spooky tales of haunted houses, hotels, and battlefields. In Ghost Hunters of New England, Alan Brown finds that ghost lore is t nearly eugh for the insatiably curious. In each of the six New England states groups of ghost hunters like the members of Connecticut's Skeleton Crew Pararmal Research Society and Maine's Bangor Ghost Hunters Association pack cameras, Geiger counters, electromagnetic field detectors, digital voice recorders, infrared thermometers, thermal scanners, oscilloscopes, tape recorders, computers, and dowsing rods in search of elusive proof of supernatural activity. In this book the reader tags along with Brown and the ghost hunters on exciting and frightening investigations of places throughout New England. We meet the teachers, doctors, accountants, housewives, and law enforcement personnel who devote much of their free time to a quest that many outsiders view with skepticism-if t scorn. They are passionate about, even obsessed by, their expensive, time-consuming, and sometimes dangerous and chilling avocation. In fascinating, startling, and sometimes humorous accounts, Brown highlights the determination of these individuals to secure positive proof of the existence of the spirit realm and answer the question: What happens to the soul after death?
