Jane Ammeson is a writer specializing in history. Her work has appeared in national and international magazines and newspapers, including the Herald-Palladium, and she has written numerous local history books for the Images of America series, including volumes on Holiday World, Miller Beach, and Brown County. She is also the author of A Jazz-Age Murder in Northern Indiana, She was born and raised in Indiana Harbor and currently lives in southwest Michigan.
Before the Civil War, a network of secret routes and safe houses crisscrossed the Midwest to help African Americans travel north to escape slavery. Although many slaves were able to escape to the safety of Canada, others met untimely deaths on the treacherous journey—and some of these unfortunates still linger, unable to rest in peace. In Hauntings of the Underground Railroad: Ghosts of the Midwest, Jane Ammeson investigates unforgettable and chilling tales of these restless ghosts that still walk the night.
Even the most sensational and scandalous crimes can disappear into history, the spine-chilling tales forgotten by subsequent generations. Murders that Made Headlines: Crimes of Indiana reveals some of these extraordinary but forgotten true events that captured the public's attention in the course of the last 200 years. Jane Ammeson recounts the astonishing and sometimes bizarre stories of arsenic murders, Ponzi schemes, prison escapes, perjury, and other shocking crimes that took place in the Hoosier state.
