Many things can be haunted—a person, a place, even a book like this one—and not necessarily by ghosts. People are often haunted by memories, as are the books they write, such as this book.

People are often haunted by memories, as are the books they write, such as this book. It’s haunted by Lily Rose Whitehorses memories of a town called Argo, Oklahoma, a town you won’t find on the map anymore. By the end of the Great Depression, Argo was nothing but a ghost town. You could say Argo had been a town of ghosts long before that, too, even before she first stepped off the train there in the summer of 1929, the year she turned nineteen.Don’t think this story turned out all right for her or for anybody else involved, just because she speaks to you in what her high-school English teacher taught her is “the first-person, active voice, present tense.” Writing in the first person doesn’t mean shes now the same person she was in 1929.

The active voice doesn’t mean shes still active—or even alive. Nor does the present tense mean shes in your Here-and-Now. Her person-and-voice-and-tense doesn’t follow the rules. Shes not bound like the pages of a book by any bindings. This is a ghost story. It takes place in a place without boundaries and few rules. Whitehorse is a part of this book’s world, but not a part of yours.Like Alice, Whitehorse falls through a rabbit hole on Black Tuesday in 1929, a fall that leads her to identify the town of Argos deepest, darkest secrets.SNOW GHOST is the story of the pre-incarnation of CHALK GHOSTs ghost-and-murderer-hunter Lily Rose Whitehorse, a Native American with severe physical limitations but extraordinary psychic and mental strengths.Whitehorse loves poetry, especially that of Edgar Allan Poe.

So she quotes lines of poetry frequently--and even publishes a number of murder poems in the course of telling her tale of murder and revenge.
