Clerisy Press :: Ghosthunting :: Ghosthunting San Antonio, Austin, and Texas Hill Country
Ghosthunting San Antonio, Austin, and Texas Hill Country
Ghosthunting San Antonio, Austin, and Texas Hill Country 
Settled by Spanish explorers more than three centuries ago, San Antonio has a rich haunted history that includes conquistadores, the local Apache and Comanche Indian tribes, ancient monasteries, lost gold mines, battlefields, and elegant hotels. Ghosthunting San Antonio, Austin, and Texas Hill Country covers 30 haunted locations in or around the cities of San Antonio and Austin and throughout the region known as Texas Hill Country, collectively one of the most haunted places in the country. Each site includes a combination of history, haunted lore and phenomena, and practical visitation information.

Local author Michael O. Varhola drew upon his training and experiences as a historian, journalist, and paranormal investigator while compiling this colorful and useful guide to publicly accessible haunted places. This guide fits every visitor's needs with coverage of the paranormal, traveling the area, and Texas history.

Ghosthunting San Antonio, Austin, and Texas Hill Country is organized into four geographical sections, "City of San Antonio," "Greater San Antonio," "Austin," and "Texas Hill Country." This hands-on guide also includes an introduction to the subject of ghosthunting in the Lone Star State and all the information readers need to visit the places described within it. It also has an appendix that briefly describes nearly 100 other haunted places in the region that people can visit, which lends a comprehensive character to it.

Types of sites covered in Ghosthunting San Antonio, Austin, and Texas Hill Country include bridges, churches, colleges and universities, cemeteries and graveyards, government buildings, historic sites, hotels, museums, parks, restaurants and bars, roads and highways, railroads, shopping areas and malls, sports stadiums, and theaters. Specific haunted sites covered include the Crockett Hotel, built on the spot where David Crockett and the final defenders of the Alamo are believed to have been slain; the Ghost Tracks, where spectral children are known to move people's stopped cars; San Fernando Cathedral, oldest cathedral in the United States; and the Devil's Backbone, and haunted highway that wends through the hills north of San Antonio.
