This book presents a fascinating assemblage of tales of the supernatural that are unique to the American South. From the apparitions of Old Virginia to the “Brown Mountain Lights” seen by her ancestors as they crossed the Great Smoky Mountains, to the Voo-Doo Priestess Marie Laveau of Louisiana, book lovers will be exhilarated and entertained. The book has a generous sprinkling of Confederate ghosts and Miss Lucy shares with her readers selected battlefield experiences of her Civil War Re-enactor friends. A look at contemporary paranormal activity includes stories of rockabilly singer Johnny Horton's preoccupation with his premonition of death (which he predicted with amazing accuracy) and Tampa Bay’s Sunshine Sky-way Bridge and the ghosts of its tragedies. The concluding chapter becomes logical as evidence of what ghosts really might be is put forth.
