More than 100 tales of the supernatural, drawn from Tidewater Virginia to the Lone Star State, are included in this collection. This volume of supernatural narratives is, unlike most such volumes available today, taken from the folk tradition of the southern United Stated. A majority of the texts were collected in the last twenty-five years, although the tales are set in time periods ranging from the Revolutionary War to the present. Most of the items given here have never appeared in print before; in all cases, they have been maintained by oral tradition. Among the 100 tales in this book – drawn from Tidewater Virginia to the Lone Star State – you can read about the face on the window of the Carrollton, Alabama courthouse, the Tex-Mex widower who was haunted by the ghost of his first wife until he paid the grocery bill, the Headless Gownsman at the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee, and much more! These scary stories about haunted houses, banshees and graveyards are perfect for Halloween or a late night scare. More importantly, readers will learn about courage and resourcefulness. Goodreads.
