New Book Haunts Tulsa's Past

"Welcome to a window into the past. Tulsa’s Haunted Memories explores the forgotten history and lost folklore of “America’s Most Beautiful City.” Tulsa’s haunting history will captivate the reader with the secrets it holds from its intriguing past. Mystery and mystique follow Tulsa’s urban legends and prove that truth can be stranger than fiction. Once known as the oil capital of the world, its streets were not only lined in “Black Gold,” but also tales of a time when ruthlessness and lawlessness ruled the city. Discover these places and stories that have left their ghostly impressions on Tulsa." [Arcadia Publishing]

Written by long-time Tulsan, Teri French, this work goes on sale, October 18, 2010. If I get an advance copy, I'll post a review here shortly. It looks to be an interesting read. While my own book did cover tales from Tulsa, no doubt French has been able to probe more deeply that city's storied past. I look forward to reading it.

I love when writers target their focus to one local area. It just is much more rich and well researched than covering a whole globe of haunted places.
