Trucker Ghost Stories: And Other True Tales of Haunted Highways, Weird Encounters, and Legends of the Road

These are true stories from the highways and byways of America. These first-hand accounts are as varied as the storytellers themselves—some are detailed and filled with the terror and suspense that made people feel they had to share what happened to them with others; others are brief and straightforward retellings of truly chilling events.

Publisher's Summary

In Annie Wilder's uniquely entertaining book, there are uncanny true tales of haunted highways, weird encounters, and legends of the road.

It may have happened to you; it’s happened to almost everyone who’s ever driven down a highway at night, or in the fog, or snow. Something suddenly appears: a flash of movement, a shadow... what was it? It could be, as the true stories in this book attest, a ghost.

These are true stories from the highways and byways of America. These first-hand accounts are as varied as the storytellers themselves—some are detailed and filled with the terror and suspense that made people feel they had to share what happened to them with others; others are brief and straightforward retellings of truly chilling events. Here is a chupacabra attack on the desert highway between L.A. and Las Vegas; ghost trains and soldiers; UFOs; the prom girl ghost of Alabama; a demon in Texas; and other accounts of the creepy, scary things that truckers and other drivers and passengers told to editor Annie Wilder.

With so many different stories, the Trucker Ghost Stories collection moves beyond the usual haunted house to offer stories to entice any ghost-story listener—and anyone who’s ever wondered.

    I loved this book I wish there were more like it! These are peoples personal experiences and the stories are spooky but not gory or bloody which is great for me. The narrators did a good job in my opinion.

    Story
    "Just not my cup of tea, I guess."
    What didn’t you like about Tavia Gilbert and Peter Ganim ’s performance?


    Any additional comments?

    In my opinion, this is just a collection of I-hope-you-believe-me stories, some first-hand and some third-hand, that seemed as if they were written for a junior high-school English class assignment; not particularly compelling, relatively shallow and certainly predictable. In fairness, perhaps that's just how such oral "histories" sound; brief, unembellished and absent much context. Anyway, in my view, most of the stories fell in the "I had a weird feeling one time" category that left me wondering why I was listening. As to the alien-abduction memoirs, well, I have to admit that I stopped listening to the book altogether after the first one...

    Story
    "Take trucker stories with a grain of salt"

    There were actually very few ghost stories in the book. Mostly it was bizarre stories and trucker tales. I didn't expect to buy many of the stories but I at least expected some entertaining trucker stories and there were a few decent ones. Quite a few were blatantly bogus and not very compelling.
