Book Review: Virginia's Haunted Historic Triangle 2nd Edition: Williamsburg, Yorktown, Jamestown & Other Haunted Locations 2nd Edition by Pamela Kinney

Virginia's Haunted Historic Triangle 2nd Edition: Williamsburg, Yorktown, Jamestown & Other Haunted Locations 2nd Edition
by Pamela Kinney
July 28, 2019
192 pages
Publisher: Schiffer; 2 edition
In this 2nd edition, go deeper into ghostly history as you tour Williamsburg, Yorktown, and Jamestown in the Historic Triangle. Visit haunted Jamestown Island, where Captain John Smith and the first English colonists settled. Stroll around Williamsburg and follow the same footsteps of Thomas Jefferson and George Washington as they walked along Duke of Gloucester Street. Tour ghostly historic Yorktown from the colonial era through the Civil War. Take side trips to the towns and counties nearby that put the finishing touches to the history of the whole area. You'll hear odd noises and see apparitions, but above all, be prepared to get to know the ghosts of the Historic Triangle and its surrounding areas. They're dying for you to hear their stories.

I've reviewed a couple of Pamela's historic haunted books. This is a second edition. The first edition was printed in 2011. This edition has more in-depth histories of the haunted places, more stories gathered from people who witnessed hauntings and some of Pamela's own paranormal investigations.

First, I want to comment on the quality of the physical book. The pages are thick and glossy. All the books I've reviewed from Schiffer are top quality. Not only is this book fun to read, it is satisfying to hold...only true book nerds know what I'm talking about...but it's a thing! Lol.

I'll start off by admitting I'm a skeptic. Don't believe in ghosts. I would only change my mind if I experienced something first hand. But I still enjoyed and learned some cool things from Pamela's book, Virginia's Haunted Historic Triangle 2nd Edition. The triangle consists of Williamsburg, Yorktown, and Jamestown. There are some surrounding areas included as well. As an NC resident, I've been on many school field trips to these towns as well as on family vacations. I wish I would have had this book to read beforehand. It would have been a much more interesting experience!

There is so much historical information on each location along with photos. The first-hand haunting accounts are also entertaining (or scary if you are a believer). Pamela also did her own paranormal investigating of some of the locations and provides some pictures. In some cases, she documented paranormal activity.

The book is well-organized and written. It isn't boring historical info dumps but told with some humor and personality.

If you love historical haunting books, then this is your crack and Pamela is your dealer!
