Description

Manitoba may seem like a quiet province, but its prairies teem with paranormal activity. A ghostly groundskeeper still does his rounds at the Delta Marsh Field Station; strange noises and apparitions of children in 19th-century clothing have been reported at Lower Fort Garry; and Mrs. Kennedy still welcomes guests to Captain Kennedy's House just as she did when her home was built in 1866.

Haunted Manitoba shares eerie stories from all corners of the province and places them in the context of Manitoba's rich history.

About this Author

Matthew Komus has developed programs and exhibits for many different museums and heritage sites in Manitoba. Topics covered include everything from hockey and haunted buildings (very popular), to modernist architecture and composting toilets (not as popular). Though he has written articles, tours and booklets, this is his first full length book. He also operates Winnipeg Ghost Walk, the city's first walking tour on haunted buildings.

"Komus is simply fantastic at combining historical facts and social trends into a tension-building narrative" -- The Manitoban

"Haunted Manitoba is a perfect introduction to local spookiness for younger readers, or for anyone interested in the history of our local Manitoban communities. While it won't likely leave readers unsettled, it offers an appreciation of the history of Manitoba." --Keith Cadieux, Winnipeg Free Press
