Gone Missing! A Supernatural Tour of the Great Lakes - Book


In the Gone Missing! A Supernatural Tour of the Great Lakes book hauntings and strange happenings are not hard to find on the Upper Great Lakes. Join regional story collector Dennis Boyer on a circumnavigation of Lake Michigan, Lake Huron, and Lake Superior which explores both ancient legends and contemporary paranormal events on the "three big sisters" carved out by the Ice Age. In his latest colletion of ghostly folklore, Gone Missing, Boyer takes readers to shipwrecks, lonely lighthouses, deserted islands, and harbor taverns to meet the characters who preserve the lore of these inland seas. In the process he assembles a collection of tales that illuminate not only local brushes with the supernatural, but that also provide a cultural relief map of the shoreline communities of these three big bodies of water. Soft cover. 220 pages.

Dennis Boyer is an attorney and a lobbyist who works in Madison and lives on a farm with his wife and two sons in Dodgeville, Wisconsin. He has long been a social activist supporting Indian treaty rights and environmental preservation. A Mennonite from the Pennsylvania Dutch country, he still does farm chores with draft horses. Called a "premiere ghost hunter" by Haunted Wisconsin author Michael Norman and designated the "folktale man" by Wisconsin Trails magazine, Boyer travels widely in his occupation as a representative of public employees and as an environmental activist. He lives on a farm in southwest Wisconsin with his family.

Driftless Spirits: Ghosts of Southwest Wisconsin By Dennis Boyer "What's particularly enjoyable about Dennis Boyer's collection is its delicious melding of the ordinary and extraordinary--roadside attractions we take for granted are imbued with supernatural possibility. Beautiful mysteries are all around us, and home is where the haunting is." --Madison Isthmus 1996.

Giants in the Land: Folktales & Legends of Wisconsin By Dennis Boyer Illustrations by Owen Coyle In this book, Dennis Boyer presents dozens of stories from all parts of Wisconsin, drawing from its rich cultural mix--lumberjack tales, stories from fishing camps, legends of farmers, brewers, miners, hunters, trappers and factory and railroad workers. Richly illustrated with Owen Coyle's pen and ink sketches.

Great Wisconsin Taverns By Dennis Boyer Here at last is a guide to many of Wisconsin's memorable and unique taverns featuring 101 different watering holes. Dennis Boyer helps you find the best places to stop and taste the suds.

Northern Frights: A Supernatural Ecology of the Wisconsin Headwaters By Dennis Boyer Illustrations by Owen Coyle In this, his third book of Wisconsin ghost tales, folk legends, and supernatural happenings, Dennis Boyer explores the Wisconsin north woods, there finding stories and storytellers of quite a different sort from those he encountered in the southern half of the state. Many of the legends were told to Dennis Boyer by Native American storytellers, others by descendants of French, English and early pioneers to the north country. All who visit this land of tall green pines and sparkling blue waters will, after reading Dennis Boyer's new collection, visit Northern Wisconsin next time with a new appreciation of the region.
