“A combination of history, folklore, and urban legend, Mike Ricksecker’s books delight those wo appreciate a classic ghost story, and keep alive the fact that without the story itself, all ghosts would be is a whisper in the wind.”
–Lee Ehrlich, Ghost Pros, Paranormal Divers, 30 year paranormal veteran

“To date, Ghosts and Legends of Oklahoma is the best book on hauntings covering this state. I couldn’t stop reading it once I started. As the stories unfold on events you realize the author takes pains to confirm if they really happened unlike other books on the same subject. It is an excellent read right from the beginning!”
–Cathy Nance, Co-founder and Case Manager, Society of the Haunted

“Ghosts and Legends of Oklahoma is filled with a rich and tantalizing history you won’t learn in a classroom. The spine tingling ghost stories leave you wanting to know more. Two thumbs up to Mike Ricksecker.”
–Lisa Rogers, author of On Haunted Ground: The Green Ghost and Other Spirits of Cemetery Road
