“Smith’s spooky tales are perfect for warm summer nights spent around the campfire. Her latest book of ghost stories focuses solely on Western Canada and is a wonderful fit for families looking for fun and spooky tales to tell under the stars.”—Quirk Magazine
In this delightful companion to the bestselling Campfire Stories of Western Canada, Barbara Smith scours the spookiest corners of local folklore from Vancouver Island to the Canadian Rockies to the vast plains of the Prairies to bring readers a brand-new collection of ghost stories. Combining truth, legend, and a healthy dose of suspense, Smith weaves together over thirty bone-chilling tales perfectly suited for reading aloud on family camping trips or quiet nights at home. Suitable for ages eight to eighty-eight, this frighteningly fun collection reveals the supernatural side of Western Canada.
[Smith] puts in just the right amount of spookiness for kids aged nine to ninety. At three to four pages each, the stories are easy to read and perfect for read-alouds at sleepover or during a camping trip. The stories could be used as a kickoff to a scary story writing activity or contest.
