Ghosts of Denton:
The history of the mysteries in a small Texas townShelly Tucker
Any town that boasts a grave on the courthouse lawn ought to have a ghost or two. Denton, Texas has many! Ghosts, that is. Author Shelly Tucker claims, "People come to Denton and never want to leave...ever!" This book contains a fraction of the ghost stories told in the area. Established in 1857, this frontier town was wild and rambunctious. Denton has been home to some colorful and quirky characters over the years, and legends claim that some remain in the afterlife. Within the covers of this book, you will find tales of the Goat Man at Old Alton Bridge, a ghostly hooligan, and a librarian who never "checked out." There is the tale of the sheriff who protects and serves the community from beyond the grave, and of the outlaw Sam Bass, whose spirit still roams the streets. Find stories of Nurse Betty tending patients from the afterlife, a theater manager who can't leave his job, a Texas hero (who survived The Massacre at Goliad to die in a Denton fire) still searching for his gold, and the spirit of John Denton protecting the town that bears his name Read the stories with an open mind. They are interwoven with the fascinating history of this small Texas town. After reading it, Denton will never look the same in the daylight.AVAILABLE AT AMAZON
