Harter, Walter. "Osceola's Head and other American Ghost Stories." Englewood Cliffs, NJ: Prentice-Hall, Inc., 1974
A children's book of ghost stories such as one about Osceola's head. The inside cover reads:
"Bloody handprints on a wall. A floating head. The ghost of a drummerboy. Out of America's turbulent history, from the Spanish colonial invasion to the American Revolution to the civil War, ghosts sill haunt this country from Utah to New York. Author Walter Harter weaves each weird tale into historical moments in America's past.
In the book's first story, Mr. Harter tells of Osceola, the Seminole Indian chief who was jailed by American forces in the early 19th Century. The chief died an agonizing death in captivity but his head, say many tourists today, can be seen floating about the dungeon where he was chained. From later stories come haunted houses, witches and other supernatural phenomena.
Wherever Mr. Harter's haunted stories take you, they will leave you with the chill of no ordinary history book."
