Tales of Hauntings, Strange Happenings, and Other Local Lore

Book Description

Paul Bunyon and Babe, Native American Indians, ghosts, river mysteries, and more populate the pages of Spooky Wisconsin. You'll meet the shrouded horseman of Milwaukee, the troll of Mount Horeb, the dark horse of the Dells, and more as you join folklorist S. E. Schlosser to discover the spooky stories from the Badger state, from the Illinois border to Lake Superior, and the Mississippi River to Lake Michigan.

About Schlosser, S. E.

S. E. Schlosser has been telling stories since she was a child, when games of “let's pretend” quickly built themselves into full-length stories. She created and maintains the Web site AmericanFolklore.net, where she shares a wealth of stories from all 50 states, some dating back to the origins of America. She lives near the Hudson River in New York State.

Paul Hoffman illustrates books of many genres—children's titles, textbooks, short story collections, natural history volumes, and cookbooks. For the Spooky series, he employs a scratchboard technique and an active imagination. He lives in Massachusetts.
