    I would love to get my hands on this book and the other three books you wrote.I use to live in Capreol back in 1984.I swore I seen stuff there when I was young,but hard to prove to people what I saw.I seen actual ghosts coming from the bushes and with red eyes.At first I thought I was seeing things.Until the ghosts came in to the town of Capreol.Roaming our streets.I ran like hell.Because I was so scared that I seen actual ghosts walking about.When I was young I heard all kinds of stories about Capreol.And when I was young I use to find it hard to sleep at night because I use to hear strange noises.I use to live right next to the bush near the old cemetery.Back then.Now that I see that you wrote about Capreol.I am beginning to think these stories are actual true.Can you get back to me so I can share my stories with you.Plus I also have some stories to share about my First Nation on the creepy stories that went on here back in 1801 with our fist nations people and the the creatures that roam our community at night and our bushes.I would be so happy to hear from you soon…Sheila Borton
