Ghost Trackers: The Unreal World of Ghosts, Ghost-Hunting, and the Paranormal by Chris Gudgeon

“Inspired by the hit television series “Ghost Trackers,” this ghostly tome invites readers to explore the mysteries that haunt us all: ghostly histories, how to equip yourself to explore a haunted house, the latest on what the scientists think. All this and much more is packed into this fascinating book.

“In the world of Ghost Trackers, kids who are interested in ghosts and the paranormal search for answers to the questions we all have about the afterlife. Full of stories of sightings, both ancient and recent, and information about becoming a ghost tracker, this book demands to be read and shared. After all, who knows if ghosts are evidence of life after death or if they are simply a natural occurrence we are yet to understand?”            [J133.3 GUDGEON]
