Summary, etc.: "Echoes of a dynamic history still linger in Springfield, Missouri. The town square was the scene of a Civil War battle, a Wild Bill Hickok shootout and a tragic 1906 lynching. From the phantom landlord of Jefferson Avenue to the spectral bride of Phelps Grove Park Bridge, meet figures from the town's past that continue to mystify its present. Pore over reports of supernatural activity at Drury College and the Landers Theater and investigate a bounty of bizarre, sensational rumors from the surrounding countryside in this collection of Springfield ghost lore"-- Provided by publisher.
