Piercing the Veil: Examining San Diego's Haunted History (Paperback)

Charles L. Spratley


Many people search to find a good and true ghost story in San Diego. It might surprise you to find that some tales you thought were true, may be created from misconceptions, distortions, and even made-up historic events. Find the scoop here as some of the "truths" of San Diego's most famous haunts are debunked and stories set straight via historical research. Just how haunted is the Whaley House? Was "Yankee Jim" really hung on the property, or can this and other Whaley tales be demystified? Is there still a ghostly gunslinger's poker game going on at the Horton Grand Hotel were the players real or not? The ghost story surrounding Albert Robinson and his burial and then subsequent haunting of Julian Hotel is disturbing but is it true? The reality and history of many haunted places can be far more titillating without the smoke and mirrors, exaggerations, and fabrications. So pull back the curtain to find out what's behind San Diego's ghostly origins.
