"Haunted Land: The Devil's Backbone 3" is the third in this popular Texas series of ghosts, the supernatural and the mysterious.

This volume brings the reader 20 more mysteries including "A Child's Handprint," "The White Buckskin," "Mystical Lady," and many more. Bert Wall, a fifth-generation Texan, grew up in Houston where he graduated from the University of Houston with a degree in history and political science. But he also spent a lot of time growing up in the Texas Hill Country where he heard the stories and folklore that permeated the area. He started gathering and documenting the stories of supernatural occurrences that took place on or near the Devil's Backbone, a rugged area between the towns of Blanco and Wimberley. In the 1980s Wall started writing about the spooky tales of the area, such as "The Mystic Herd," "The Mystery Riders," and "The Haunted Valley." His stories have been published in the "Canyon Lake Times-Guardian," the "New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung" and the "Houston Chronicle." In 1996 four of his stories were featured on the CBS television series, "Unsolved Mysteries."

The Illinois town of Macomb is the perfect example of an old prairie town that has grown from an unforgiving frontier into a modern and diverse community in the twenty-first century. Since 1828, spirits of departed citizens have stubbornly remained dead above ground within the county. Meet the Woman in Black, who gave the coal-mining community of Colchester an additional burden of dread to the one they faced every day beneath the earth. Both kindness and suffering indelibly mark the old orphanage where the unselfish hands of Josie Westfall still care for unseen children. And then there's the presence of Belulah Wagle, the brutally murdered wife of a bootlegger, in the cemetery where her remains were finally laid to rest. Garret Moffett will guide you among witches and poltergeists in this expert tour of Macomb's haunted history.
