Manitoba may seem like a quiet province, but its prairies teem with paranormal activity. A ghostly groundskeeper still does his rounds at the Delta Marsh Field Station; strange noises and apparitions of children in 19th-century clothing have been reported at Lower Fort Garry; and Mrs. Kennedy still welcomes guests to Captain Kennedy's House - just as she did when her home was built in 1866. Haunted Manitoba shares eerie stories from all corners of the province and places them in the context of Manitoba's rich history.

Contributor Notes

MATTHEW KOMUS has developed programs and exhibits for many different museums and heritage sites in Manitoba. Topics covered include everything from hockey and haunted buildings (very popular), to modernist architecture and composting toilets (not as popular). &nbspHis first book, Haunted Winnipeg, has been reprinted several times, and he looks forward to sharing more history from beyond the perimeter highway through ghost stories from across the province. Matthew operates Winnipeg Ghost Walk, the city’s first walking tour on haunted buildings.

Editorial Reviews

"Haunted Manitoba is a perfect introduction to local spookiness for younger readers, or for anyone interested in the history of our local Manitoban communities." - Winnipeg Free Press
