Time Bandit Books: Latest Release—The Ghosts of Lone Jack

Jared Millhouse and his dad plan to spend an uneventful summer on his grandfather’s farm in Lone Jack, Missouri.

Then Jared runs into the ghost of a Civil War innkeeper and wonders if he’s lost his mind. With the help of his grandfather—and some local characters—Jared and the Crossroads Gang uncover the truth about the Civil War battle that trapped so many bloodthirsty ghosts in Lone Jack. They even recruit a pair of eccentric ghost hunters to help.

When it comes to facing down the local bully, dodging the power-crazy sheriff, or escaping convicts, Jared can count on his friends. Together, they face haunted baseball diamonds, embattled cornfields and abandoned mines.

But when Confederate and Union ghouls line up on the battlefield, the entire town relives the gruesome Battle of Lone Jack, as it was fought in 1862. Then only Jared can save the town from its ghosts.

“This very well written story gives young readers a sense of the anguish that the men who fought at Lone Jack, and so many other battles across the country, felt during this very dark period in our nation’s history. But more importantly, it gives young readers a glimpse into their heritage and will hopefully instill in them the need to preserve our past.”
