"Captivating and eerie. From the menacing to the protective and playful, Faxon and Halvorsen introduce Star of India's ghostly passengers and crew, vividly and thoughtfully setting down the oral tradition of the world's oldest sailing vessel, a familiar sight at the Maritime Museum of San Diego in Southern California. You'll hear footsteps creaking on the deck and feel a chill on the back of your neck for days." -Stephanie Reali

The stories depend more upon atmosphere and strange activity than upon actual "ghost" sightings. That gives this book a more plausible foundation. And there is a good amount of historical research to back up the supernatural occurrances.
And for an added bit, the stories take place on board a ship that is open to the public. So, if you are captivated, as I was by the yarns, you can take a trip to San Diego and explore for yourself. In fact, I might even see you there.
Lost Aboard, by S. Faxon and Theresa Halvorsen, will provide you with an introduction in advance of your visit. There’s some backstory about the ship, the lives and personalities of the ghosts before and after they lost theirs, and the varying reactions of those who encounter these spirits. Even if you don’t read this book in preparation for coming face-to-ghost with a member of the spirit world, you’ll find the book, which is a quick, short read, fascinating and well worth your time and money.
