More than 2,000 ships and many more lives have been swallowed by the Pacific Ocean and the Columbia River. Some say spirits still linger near the shores. The author shares mysterious tales of the watery graveyards, as well as other haunted Northwest spots, including hotels, theaters, homes, and more in the book that is part of Arcadia Publishing and The History Press’ Haunted America Series.
