A book unlike any other ghost book -- These are not the typical orb or streak-type ghosts that ghost hunters often get, but full formed, vaporous apparitions. The large color photos are evocative and draw you in as if you are actually standing there and seeing what the photographer saw and felt.

The large color photos are evocative and draw you in as if you are actually standing there and seeing what the photographer saw and felt. The question asked of photographer Rebecca Benjamin is: Are the photographs real? The answer? Yes! In many cultures, spirits of the dead return to visit. They return when the "veil," or separation between life and death and past and present, is at its thinnest. This is the time that Rebecca has taken most of her photographs over the past fifteen years. Ghost stories accompany each cemetery visited.

    This is really sad. What could have been beautiful photographs of wonderful, historical cemeteries and monuments are instead subjected to obvious "Photoshop" additions. The phantoms and ectoplasm and mists that have been added to each photo aren't the least bit believable, and end up making the otherwise beautiful photographs laughable. I wish that the author had realized that it is enough to document the history and even the local legends that surround each graveyard, adding color with stories This is really sad.

I wish that the author had realized that it is enough to document the history and even the local legends that surround each graveyard, adding color with stories is enough, you don't need to add it to the photos. I will keep the book in my collection, even if only to demonstrate to others "what not to do" when photographing cemeteries.

    The photography is incredibly beautiful. Cemeteries look almost like paintings. The ghost stories are interesting and historical. No one is photographing cemeteries like this photographer. The skill in lighting and bringing out the subtle textures of old cemeteries is amazing. The book is dedicated to ghost hunters and cemetery lovers. Quality high, price low. Buy it!

    What a load of crap. They claimed the photos were "real". Maybe they meant real bad special effects. I could have created some more convincing ghostly images with an outdated version of Photo Shop. What a load of crap. They claimed the photos were "real". Maybe they meant real bad special effects.

    I enjoyed Rebecca's photographs and Stuart explanation and history of the grave sites. Rebecca's photographs are eerie but show the beauty of monuments and tombstones of long ago.
