"We Shall Have them with Us Always"
The Ghosts of the Mark Twain House
by Steve Courtney
Mark Twain and his family lived in an elegant Gothic home in Hartford, Connecticut for seventeen years. In recent years, there have been accounts of presences in the house - a woman in white, odd noises, even a whiff of cigar smoke (Clemens smoked 20 to 40 a day). Television shows such as Ghost Hunters have paid a visit. In this book, author Steve Courtney recounts the tales of hauntings and the investigations that have followed--and adds the fascinating tale of the iconic American author's own interest in the occult and spiritualism.
