New Orleans has been called the most haunted city in America, and with good reason. But there are more ghosts in Louisiana than can be held in one city and the plantations of this state, with their luxurious buildings and centuries old trees, are the ideal resting ground for spectral inhabitants.

More photographs would definitely have made this book better. Several things about it just hit me wrong since I have been to several of these plantations already. I realize it's a ghost book and she's trying to set the stage but I most definitely did not have an uneasy feeling just pulling up to Myrtles during the daytime even knowing the plantations history.

My curiosity already piqued at Oak Alley, I picked up this book to both discover a variety of old plantations in Louisiana as well as to find out more about their purported hauntings.

I vastly enjoyed the history and ghost stories contained in this book. It inspired us to add on Rosedown Plantation to our trip through the area to visit Myrtles Plantation. The historical details were explored in such a way as to be informative without being textbook dry. The ghosts made me shiver but they weren't cheesy in any way. This was a lovely, light read to accompany our road trip.
I bought this book while staying in the Myrtles for Craig's and my 30th anniversary. I remembered the story somewhat from visit and tour several years ago - but just wanted to be ready to introduce myself if we met any ghosts. (we didn't) I enjoyed reading about other plantations in Louisiana and definitely want to go to try to find Hitler's horse.
I bought this book in New Orleans after visiting Oak Alley Plantation. I thought it was a historically fascinating book on the ghost stories of the plantations.
Short and sweet. Sadly, it has very few photos. I think more photographs of these beautiful plantations would have enhanced the book greatly.
Love this book. It is so easy to read and a fast read.
