Take a ride over the Niagara Falls,
through the rapids, or around the whirlpool to discover
outlandish stories with frightening outcomes. You've heard
about people going over the falls in a barrel, but what
of those who have stayed behind after the stunts and their
deaths? Learn about sacrifices to Tawiscara, the evil god,
and the 300-foot-deep gorge, Devil's Hole, supposed home
of a giant snake. Meet the dish-throwing ghost at the Olde
Angel Inn, and Robert Parson, who hung over the edge of
the Falls, only to die after his rescue. The Falls have
a secret and scary calling, and those who answer the call
are never disappointed.
The song "The Ballad of Colin Swayze" is from
the new CD "Songs of Innocence and of Experience."

While I was taking pictures, I was able to take
three short videos of the Falls! If you can, I strongly suggest
taking a ride on the Maid of the Mist to really understand
the power of the Falls. Just short of killing our digital camera,
I wiped it off and tried to catch as much as I could before the
mist hit us like rain.
"The author is most successful when she is
writing about historic facts and giving the reader images of the
powerful pull of the Mighty Niagara. We feel sadness for each
death in her words...“Spirits and Death in Niagara”
serves nicely as an introduction to the area and will make the
reader want to learn more and perhaps one-day visit to stare at
the swirling dark water and the fine history buildings."

"If you’re intrigued at all by ghosts
and hauntings, you’ll enjoy these true-life tales." -- HellnotesFull

and Death in Niagara - Marcy Italiano -- Schiffer"
"I just finished your book Spirits and Death
in Niagara. I LOVED IT! The book was like an old friend to me
taking me to all the places I knew about: Fort George, Queenstown,
Devil's Hole, Three Sister Islands, the gorge, rapids and of course--the
falls. About 15 years ago I read Pierre Berton's Niagara (during
a bout with insomnia) and I thought I knew everything about the
falls...but I learned a lot more and was entertained by your book.
SO glad I stumbled across it." -- Louise Gagne, Windsor
