I bought this book after I heard Kathryn Tucker Windham tell ghost stories in Jonesborough, Tennessee. She is famous for telling stories about her family ghost, Jeffrey, but this collection of spooky stories isn't so much about Jeffrey as is is other chilling tales of Southern folklore. Teacher, parents and storytellers will enjoy her version of Martin and the snakes, as well as the famous Bell Witch. I liked the retelling of the end of Meriwether Lewis's life, and the mystery that surrounds it.

Recommends it for: Ghost enthusiasts, those who love Southern folklore or Tennessee history
I am trying to track down a copy of this book, but it is out of print.

Windham's typical writing style of humor meets charm is evident in this book.

This book includes a story of the famed "Bell Witch", a little girl who haunts a school in TN, and "Stains on the Masoleum", and more.

Would love to purchase this book, even an old library copy or badly worn out, used version.

I am collecting the series to pass along to my children someday...
