      True Tales of Chicago’s Famous Phantoms,
    Haunted History, and Unsolved Mysteries

    If you’re from Chicago or like to visit here, you’ve probably been to some of these places. Or at least you’ve heard of them: The John Hancock Building. The Field Museum. Lake Michigan. Navy Pier. Wrigley Field. The Biograph Theater. Graceland Cemetery. They are some of Chicago’s landmarks and famous places. They play an important role in our city’s history and character. One more thing…they’re haunted!

    At least that’s how it seems. Funny things, frightening things, and unexplainable things can be seen and heard in connection with many of the people, places, and events from Chicago’s history. People like Resurrection Mary (she was real!), gangster John Dillinger, and Cubs announcer Harry Caray. Spooky places like cemeteries and not-so-scary places like the schools and beaches you may go to. Horrible historic events like the Fort Dearborn and St. Valentine’s Day Massacres. It’s no wonder that ghosthunter and author Ursula Bielski believes this is the most haunted city in America!

    Read these nineteen tales and decide for yourself just how creepy Chicago is and whether or not your city is haunted by the people and events of its past.

    For readers ages 8-12.
