Book Description

Growing up, J. Nathan Couch always had a passion for bizarre modern day legends, surviving small town tedium by chasing ghosts and hunting monsters. Upon moving to West Bend, Wisconsin, he set out to learn the legends of his new home, and he’s taking you with him.

Grab your gear, jump in the car, and join Nathan as he legend trips the murderous goat men, nature spirits, spectral prostitutes, and ghostly locomotives that inhabit the kettles and moraines of Southeastern Wisconsin. In nearly three dozen essays, all with detailed driving directions, Washington County is revealed to be Wisconsin’s finest paranormal road-trip!

About the Author

J. Nathan Couch grew up in the foothills of Northeast Georgia’s Appalachian Mountains. Given the area’s rich tradition of ghost stories and folklore, it’s no wonder he developed a passion for the bizarre and the unexplained.

Nathan is currently a resident of West Bend, Wisconsin. He is a published writer and poet, and a  member of the Paranormal Investigation and Research Society (PIRS).
