Paranormal 101: Buried Treasure

In these posts, I will provide a list of books I think anyone interested in the paranormal would benefit from reading. Each list will be arranged by topic and will be accompanied by some notes of my own. Enjoy!

Ok, so buried treasure isn’t exactly paranormal, is it? As a matter of fact, if one is going to go out looking for lost gold based on a 100 year old story passed down from one person to another, that guy or gal must at least believe in the helping hand of lady luck. Add to that the fact that many stories about buried treasure are accompanied by a ghost or two, and I would say this qualifies as falling within the same scope.

I used to love reading about lost treasures and people who found diamonds along the Florida coasts, and the Goonies was one of my favorite movies as a kid. You don’t have to go all the way to Florida to look for treasure, however. The Midwest has its very own legends!


Paranormal Illinois by Michael KleenInterested in the ghostly legends and lore of Illinois? Check out Michael Kleen’s book Paranormal Illinois. Paranormal Illinois presents in-depth and original research on some of Illinois’ most unusual tales, including the phantom lady of Kennedy Hill Road, the headless horseman of Lakey’s Creek, and the ghost of Ange Milner. Chapters on Archer Avenue, Manteno State Hospital, Ashmore Estates, Airtight Bridge, Devil’s Gate, and other infamous places present information and interviews never before seen in print. Fun, informative, and greatly entertaining, this painstakingly researched book leaves no ghost unturned.

  1. Thanks for putting this list together Michael! I have read and re-read the Michael Chaplan book and it is excellent. There are a ton of great ideas in this book.
