Description

“Engaging.... [Ptacin] is on a quest to understand the peculiar nature of belief, the power of

faith – pure, unquestioning and even unreasoning – to shape the way we see the world around

us.... This is a place and a story rooted in the very human hope that life is more than a handful of

years on a lonely planet. And that if we believe hard enough we may find proof of that, shining in

the shadows, just beyond our reach.― - Deborah Blum, New York Times Book Review

“Who doesnâ€t like a good ghost story? And in Camp Etna, the 143-year-old Spiritualist

summer retreat located in the Maine hinterland just west of Bangor, author Mira Ptacin has found a

whopping good one.... Ms. Ptacinâ€s depiction of Camp Etnaâ€s residents―a ‘quirky

underworld of fringe characters†and ‘their truthâ€â€•is both nonjudgmental and, pardon

the pun, dead-on.― - Marc M. Arkin, Wall Street Journal“A deft account.... Ptacin nimbly

traces the movement from the early days ― when Spiritualism offered women (often via

mediumship) a public voice and sense of authority ― to its heyday as a ghostly carnival, into the

public backlash at the hands of skeptics like Harry Houdini, to the New Age of crystal healing and

the even newer age of high-tech ghost hunting.― - Genevieve Valentine, NPR.org“Best to

go into this book open-minded. Leave a crack open for wonder – or belief – to slip through.― -

Elena Nicolau, Refinery29“Enchanting.... Ptacin locates the roots of Spiritualism and traces

the rise and decline of this female-dominated world that challenged institutions of the 19th-century

patriarchy, offered comforting connection with the dead, and supported both abolition and suffrage.

Blending history and her firsthand experience, Ptacin summons the spirits of this rich past and

conveys the emotional needs it has satisfied over the years.― - National Book Review

“A fascinating look at the history and cultural influence of Camp Etna, the 143-year-old

Spiritualist community in Maine.... Ptacin, who is receptive to the spiritual experiences and stories

of the community, delivers her narrative evenhandedly and with genuine curiosity. This is an eyeopening

and informative peek into a little-known but influential community.― - Publishers Weekly

[starred review]“With mediums, rocking healing, tables, divining, ghost hunting, and faith

healing in the mix, Ptacinâ€s history of the Spiritualist religion in America will entertain

practitioners and naysayers alike.... Ptacinâ€s writing is educational, entertaining, and wellresearched.

Readers interested in Spiritualism as a contemporary religion as well as the people

who are currently involved with programs, services and educational opportunities at Camp Etna

will find this of particular interest.― - Joyce McIntosh, Booklist“The Maine-based author


immersed herself in the community, and her reportage reflec
