Childhood revisited: This is the kind of book that would have creeped me out when I was 10 years old.
All in all, it was a fun read and I enjoyed learning some history about The Hampton Plantation and other "haunted" sites around N.C..

I came into this story highly critical, after all it is meant for a younger audience. However, some stories in here certainly are pretty spooky. Although the book has some really great stories and some classic ghost stories, overall it is filled with really disappointing stories. Only about 6 of the several 2-3 page stories in this book were really good. The others were bland and too similar to one another. That being said, a great read if you are planning on visiting the places mentioned but ot ...more

If you like ghost stories and stories that are short, scary, and to the point, this is the book for you. It's a good and easy read!

Entertaining, short ghost stories. Perfect to read in October; especially if you vacation in the Carolinas and are familiar with where the cities are.

Collection of short ghost stories and folktales from coastal NC and SC. Some of them will be familiar to those with some knowledge of coastal lore (and/or with ghost tale tropes in general). The "resources" at the end simply point readers to local chambers of commerce and visitors' centers, and none of the stories is particularly compelling - actually they're mostly forgettable - so I wouldn't recommend this one. There are far better collections of regional folklore.
