Texas history buffs and travelers have an eerie need for this book, which offers an unusual twist to seeing the "sights" in the Lone Star state. Organized by region - Gulf Coast, Rio Grande Valley, South Texas, Central Texas, North Texas, and West Texas - this book is the complete guide for both hardcore ghost hunters and more earthly tourists seeking to add some spirited fun to their travels. Complete practical information on nonhaunted accommodations, attractions, and restaurants are also included, making this the only guide your Texan spirit will need.

This book is a travel book, not a book on hauntings. It's not a bad book, but it's not what I planned on reading.
It's basically something you would find on the Texas tourism site. It gives you names, addresses, websites and synopisis of places in Texas. Some are haunted, most are not. And the "ghost" stories are short and basic.
If you are planning a trip to Texas, you may really like this book. If you like books on travel, you also might enjoy it. If you are looking for scary stories, then I would pass.
