Description

A fun-for-all-ages collection of over thirty spooky stories in settings across Western Canada.

 

When friends and family gather around a campfire, good times and scary stories are sure to follow. In Campfire Stories of Western Canada, Barbara Smith, the author of twenty books of true ghost stories from across Canada, presents a creepy collection of tales tailor-made for your family’s next foray into the British Columbia or Alberta wilderness. Suitable for campers aged eight to eighty, these tales combine truth and local legend with truly bone-chilling results. From the phantom swimmer on a Vancouver Island beach to the lost lights of Waterton Provincial Park, these tales will keep the shivers running down your spine long after the campfire’s last embers have died away.
