This book and The Telltale Lilac Bush were staples during my childhood in West Virginia. Perhaps the industry, labor, and poverty make the region so attracted to ghost stories. Revisiting this brought back so many memories and definitely entertained.

James Joyce
“Away! Away! The spell of arms and voices: the white arms of roads, their promise of close embraces and the black arms of tall ships that stand against the moon, their tale of distant nations. They are held out to say: We are alone. Come. And the voices say with them: We are your kinsmen.

I go to encounter for the millionth time the reality of experience and to forge in the smithy of my soul the uncreated conscience of my race.”
James Joyce, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man
