Description

The Old South has a rich and fascinating history, filled with extravagant personalities. This collection from ghost researcher Edrick Thay explores centers of paranormal lore, such as Savannah, Charleston and New Orleans, as well as 32 spine-tingling stories from Georgia, Alabama, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Florida, Mississippi, Louisiana and Virginia. * The spirits of Marie Laveau and her daughter lead a group of ethereal followers to Bayou St. John in New Orleans, where they practice voodoo. * Security guards hear ghostly voices in the Tennessee State Capitol, where two of the original building planners, long since dead, still quarrel over the details. * The scandalous tale of John McGee Parkman culminates in the haunting of his former residence in Selma, Alabama. * Still mourning the loss of her true love, the ghost of Helen Johnstone returns to the Chapel of the Cross in Madison, Mississippi. * The ghosts of two star-crossed lovers materialize in Castillo de San Marcos in Florida, the first permanent European settlement in the United States.

About the authors

Diana French was raised on Quadra Island. In 1951 she followed the road west to teach in a one-room school in Chezacut, a community of three ranches twenty miles off the Chilcotin Road. She then married Rob French, the son of Chilcotin pioneers. In 1970 the Frenches settled in Williams Lake and Diana worked as a reporter and later an editor of the Tribune. She is currently on the board of the Open Learning Agency, and is curator of the Museum of the Cariboo Chilcotin. (Harbour Publishing)
