I suggest anyone that is interested in learning about the history of Pennsylvania, especially ghost towns, to read this book. The book hits on the history and the current condition of the towns along with directions to get to these towns. A downside is the lack of pictures, historical and current.

I was excited to get this book since the author was on T.V. and was talking about her book. I read the book from cover to cover and was very informed about the state that I live in. Can't wait until the weather breaks to see some of these places. Touring my own state, what a deal and alot of the places she mentioned aren't far from me....I never knew there was places like this around me. I just love her book and the information is priceless. My husband is from Pa. and never knew there was so much to read and to see in Pa. We are planning our vacation to see alot of these places and learn and get more knowledge about Pa. Way to go Susan Hutchison Tassin.

If you like PA history and the places that were a part of it, this book is a great resource for info to refer to time and time again. I wouldn't want to travel through PA history without this one!

The author of this book didn't want to exclude anyone so Tassin has references to "paranormal activity", history, present day, mythology and so on. I was hoping for more of a guide (If you've ever seen the books about NJ ghost towns from the '80s, you'll know what I was looking for) that we could take as we went on drives and discover some of the local towns that time has passed by. Instead, I found it poorly researched. Many that were mentioned lasted only a decade and are now impossible to get to with no remains to speak of visible. I found more useful information for free using Wikipedia for local "ghost towns" or towns that now are reduced to a street or two of a handful of houses than I found in this book, I'm sorry to say.

About halfway done reading this book. Very interesting history of Pennsylvania towns that have been forgotten. Pictures, maps or illustrations would have been a plus though.
As a writer of place names, I have to commend Susan on her wonderful book. It is well written with lots of information. What makes it more delicious is that she gives concise directions for those who want to visit ghost towns. Job well done!
