Who could be better sources for scary highway ghost stories than truckers? That’s what Annie Wilder figured when she started collecting tales from the road for her recent book, “Trucker Ghost Stories and Other True Tales of Haunted Highways, Weird Encounters, and Legends of the Road.”
“For three summers, starting when I was 13, I answered the phone and typed invoices at a sand plant that my dad managed in Woodbury, Minnesota. I talked to the drivers as they waited for their trucks to get loaded with silica sand or flour, and I heard a lot of interesting stories. That’s what gave me the idea for this book,” wrote Wilder on her Trucker Ghost Story Project website when she started the book.
“Trucker Ghost Stories” is available in paperback as well as on Kindle at Amazon.
