  • More About This Book
St. Charles is the second-oldest city in Missouri and one of the oldest cities in the United States. For most of its history, it could have been featured in any bad western movie, with a legacy of street shootings and lynch mobs. When you sit on the banks of the Missouri River, it does not take much of an imagination to see, feel and perhaps even smell the ghosts lingering there. The scoundrels, the criminals and the victims of traumatic events are the spirits that cannot rest. Join Michael Henry for some of their stories as he keeps vigil with representatives of the city's restless past, from the lost dogs of the Lewis and Clark Expedition to the mysterious Lady in White.

Michael Henry was born in the Midwest, lives in the Midwest and, as a result, is not typical of the Midwest. He has been a student of the paranormal for more than thirty years and holds multiple degrees, including a PhD in communications. He has worked as a high school teacher, college professor, musician, mechanical engineer, computer consultant and historical researcher. Currently, he is a full-time magician performing all over the world (not just the Midwest), including Belfast, Northern Ireland; London; Las Vegas; and Chicago. He also manages a ghost tour, providing a well-documented historical and paranormal tour of the Historic District in St. Charles, Missouri. Henry currently shares a house (in the Midwest) with two cats, fifteen thousand books and several artificial flamingos.
