Description

Great medical triumphs have taken place at hospitals. But are these medical buildings also a great place to go looking for ghosts? According to some, they are. Ghost hunters believe that the spirits of dead people often linger in the locations where they spent their final moments. So what better place to look for these restless souls than in a hospital? Among the 11 hospitals in this book, children will discover a huge medical facility abandoned by everyone but the ghosts of long-dead patients; a hospital that is so creepy it was used as a set for horror movies; and a temporary hospital built on a Civil War battlefield that is now considered one of the most haunted spots in America. Chilling tales and the dark histories surrounding these medical buildings will keep readers eagerly turning the pages for more.
