Sept. 27, 2011 - PRLog -- Wichita Haunts, a new book that illustrates the stories of Wichita's haunted sites through vintage photographs and captions, will be published October 3.

Readers will learn about Shadowman roaming the grounds at Cowtown, the blacksmith that touches investigators in his shop, and the former church on Hillside Street has a friendly ghost named Belle. These are just a few of the characters that linger in Haunted Wichita.

The book explores the haunted history of Wichita through supernatural tales from Cowtown, the Delano District, theaters, and hotels. Most of the sites in the book are authentic haunted locations, as documented by Wichita Paranormal Research Society (WPRS) and Paranormal Research Investigators (PRI).

"I believe that without the history there are no haunts, so there is a lot of background information about each location," says author Beth Cooper, who leads haunted history tours in both Kansas and Missouri.

Wichita Haunts will be available October 3, 2011 at area bookstores, independent retailers, online retailers, and through Arcadia Publishing at (888) 313-2665 or www.arcadiapublishing.com.
