This extraordinary book tackles head-on the existence and meaning of spirit forces in Australia. Haunted Earth asks a few key questions: Is Australia haunted? If so, where, and with what? Are there spiritual or otherwise ?special? places in Australia? Each chapter follows a round-the-clock journey, from midnight to midnight, charting the activities of Australians of many different experiences and cultures: there are Aboriginal spirits on Flinders Island at daybreak, the summoning of a Chinese ancestor spirit at noon in Perth, an exorcism in New South Wales in early afternoon.
