The three ghosts of the Hotel Galvez and Spa, Galveston, including one that leaves the scent of gardenias in a room; the Lake Worth monster, a creature appearing as part man, part goat and part fish; the winged, humanoid monsters of Littlefield who allegedly lived in the basement of two elderly spinsters; phantoms of the Faust Hotel, New Braunfels, which include a black cat; the ghostly woman who walks the banks of the Rio Grande in Laredo, looking for the children that she pushed over a cliff into the river; the Confederate soldier and the phantom boy nicknamed "Jimmy" who still roam Tremont House hotel in Galveston; and the spectral cowboys who, in the hours before dawn, walk in the courtyard of the Y.O.
