Barbara Smith has already brought us chilling, true tales about haunted houses and animal phantoms. She's not through yet. Ghost Riders takes us on the road with true stories about ghosts, phantoms and spooks who tag along in cars, planes, trains and automobiles.

Bobby George had flown with his dad from the time he was a few months old. Now they're off to Kenya for real adventure. But when his dad dies in the cockpit, who's the Ghost Rider who lands the plane? Though Jeff thinks it funny when a 'puke-green' bus shows up on the curb to take him to school, he gets on anyway. But within minutes he realizes he's Riding With Wraiths.

When Robert McCullogh decides to move London Bridge to Arizona, people think he's gone crazy. But after a while they get used to the sight, and even to the ghosts who tagged along and who appear for tourists every now and then to show them The Bridge Across Time. In Road Wraith, Jack and Diana are terrified to learn that the car that almost hits them in an intersection is driven by a skeleton. And Fiddler's Phantom tells the story of a fiddle player murdered on his way home, who, to this day, haunts the bridge where he was killed.

Read the rest of the tantalizing, true tales presented in Ghost Riders. And don't forget to check for phantom passengers next time you get in the car, board the bus, or cross a bridge. You never know what's out there waiting to hitch a ride!
