Summary "With thorough research that includes recorded testimony from the 1970s and recent interviews, the story of what some call the world's most haunted house is told. The saga begins with a family history of the hardworking and caring Goodins, then recounts the start of the poltergeist happenings in 1971, their increasing frequency through 1975, and the family's struggle to normalize their lives. The author includes family photographs, photographs of pieces of evidence, transcripts of interviews, and opinions from paranormal experts to give credence to this true paranormal story"--Provided by the publisher.
