A collection of strange occurrences, Ghosts along the Texaas Coast is a far cry from any ordinary guidebook.  Author Docia Schultz Williams has gone beyone that which most would dare to investigate and has brought to light tangible evidence and firsthand testimony to validate an illusive world without dimension and filled with bizzarre and disturbing accounts of unexplainable presences.

"We have no time to waste on insignificant books, hollow books, books that are here to please.
 
"We have no time for those sloppy, hurried books of the 'Go on, I need it for July, and in September we'll give you a proper launch and sell one hundred thousand copies, it's in the bag' variety.
 
"We want books that are written for those of us who doubt everything.  Who cry over the least little thing, who are startled by the slightest noise.
 
"We want books that cost their authors a great deal, books where you can feel the years of work, the backache, the writer's block, the author's panic at the thought that he might be lost:  his discouragement, his courage, his anguish, his stubbornness, the risk of failure that he has taken.
 
"We want splendid books, books that immerse us in the spendor of reality and keep us there; books that prove to us that love is at work in the world next to evil, right up against it, at times indistinctly, and that it always will be, just the way that suffering will always ravage hearts.  We want good novels.
 
"We want books that leave nothing out:  neither human tragedy nor everyday wonders, books that bring fresh air to our lungs.
 
"And even if there is only one such book per decade, even if there is only on Vies minuscules every ten years, that would be enough.  We want nothing else."
