I won this as a Goodreads Giveaway. The photography is wonderful. I think slightly overexposed b&w images make everything in life a little more mysterious. The stories were....

I received the book for free through Goodreads First Reads. It really was not what I was expecting. I enjoyed the black and white photography,which I felt added an eerie feel to the book. However the descriptions were one to two paragraphs long and vaguely explained the history behind the legend. The book focused on many urban legends originating primarily from Waco, TX. I feel there's a lot of history in Waco that could have been elaborated on to give the stories in the book more depth.
