I originally picked this book up in the airport when traveling through Nashville. I came across it again when cleaning out an unused bedroom in our house, sat down and read it. It's short and can be read in a single sitting (which I did). Sandwiched between Chaos and The Prince -- well it obviously isn't in the same class. Still, it was informative, a piece of Tennessee history I didn't know and easy to read. I enjoyed reading it.

This book is more about history of that time relevant to the story and family. Also, a bit of retelling of the memories written down by Richard Williams Bell in Our Family Trouble. It’s the first book I’ve read about the Bell Witch and I found it a good starting point.

A well written and thorough account of possibly America's greatest ghost story. The writer not only knows the facts of the case, but manages to convey them with a poetry becoming of the topic. Worth a read.

Charles Edwin Price is a respected and well-known storyteller from the mountains of Tennessee and Virginia, and his account of the infamous Bell Witch legend is one of his best works.

From cover to cover, the book kept my interest and even scared me in a few places. Price also does a nice job of laying out the story so that it's easy to follow.

The only downside to this well-written book is that it doesn't provide any new or historical information.

This book took be almost two weeks to complete. I was scared the whole way through. He described the encounters of the family as if I was there. I would recommend for an October reading
