Mercedes Yaeger ran ghost tours in the Pike Place Market for the last thirteen years. In Market Ghost Stories she combines history, research, and lore; introducing the people of the Pike Place Market to the reader. Stories are about reported hauntings in the district but delve beyond just the reports. As one reader said "Very well researched and written, and I especially liked that it was not your "typical" ghost story book. It made the history of the area really come alive." Mercedes self-published and printed her book through the Market Ghost Tours. The mission of her tours is: "To preserve the oral tradition and people's history of the Pike Place Market and, in doing so connect visitors to the individuals that have impacted the Market's growth." The book is an extension of that mission.

Very fun book about "ghostly" situations in Seattle via Mercedes Yaeger. Excellent, quick read and very fun to explore in person.
The title of the book is in a sense false advertising as to what you will find within the book itself and the reason is for the usage of both "ghost stories" and "the souls of Seattle". In a sense it was disappointing since it has one anticipating a much more different story than they will be receiving when they read the book.

The ghost stories part is lacking and to understand the usage of "soul" I think one needs a new definition than normal. In Institute we learned that "soul" stands for both the physical body and the spirit combined together to make a being unlike "spirit" which we use interchangeably with it. Anyway it is this definition of "soul" that needs to be used in the reading of this particular book as the author focuses her work mostly on the people who formed the Market instead of the actual beings who seem to haunt its corners.

So to get the bad points out besides the above.... Mercedes doesn't have the passion for the "ghosts" if you would. She just mentions one or two encounters that she may have heard about (only one or two seemed to be private) of that particular ghost then continues on to try to give all the scientific explanations as to what may end up causing "paranormal activity" before giving her ideas repeatedly on. And not even all the stories mentioned had ghosts or paranormal activity, which she admitted in her own writing while others flopped back to events that didn't even relate to Washington's Pike Place Market.

The author's clear strength from this book is that she would be a better local historian (it would be interesting to see how she runs her "ghost tour") whose writing is on that particular subject. She has a clear passion for the people who have come together to form this unique regional community and a love for the Market that can be read in every page while she does a wonderful job in returning them to life as she describes the events that were occurring in that time.

For those who like history or are interested in the Pike Place market I would recommend the book as such. For those who are into urban legends and/or ghost stories I would steer clear while trying to find another book from the same region as there is only enough to ease your teething but not enough to give you any concrete reading.
This was an easy read with lots of details. Really enjoyed it. The ghost stories weren't super scary but certainly made you think differently about the Market area. Fun.
Very interesting
