The Ghosts of the Illinois Canal System

This is the title of a book written by David Youngquist in the 2008.  It chronicles a series of unexplained events that have occurred in the areas adjacent to the Illinois Michigan Canal and the Hennepin Canal.  Very few of these stories actually take place in close proximity to the waterways.   These include the Princeton bridge across the Hennepin Canal; in the Milan area adjacent to the Hennepin Canal; in the railroad tunnel at Split Rock (I and M  Canal); in the Buffalo Rock area ( I an M  Canal).   Curiously there are no stories in the areas adjacent to the Cal Sag Canal or the Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal.

I found the book interesting for the most part.
