About this book

The ninth book in this bestselling and award-winning series — now scarier than ever!

In these chilling tales, award-winning author Joel A. Sutherland takes his readers on a strange and spooky journey across Canada. In this installment, readers will learn about . . .

  • a spectral wagon master in Tofield, Alberta, who looks for workers to accompany him on his phantom wagon.

  • a travelling salesman from England who shares a room with a young artist one night in Kentville, Nova Scotia, only to discover the young man was a ghost.

  • the ghost of painter Tom Thomson, who paddles past a northern point on Canoe Lake in Algonquin Provincial Park, Ontario.

Moody black-and-white illustrations and photographs enhance the hauntingly eerie read.
