1 Review
From Atlanta to the Coastal Plain, Georgia is rich with tales of the supernatural. This collection draws from the state's historic past, with stories of phantom pirates from the coast and restless Civil War spirits from Sherman's March and Andersonville Prison. Unusual creatures, such as the devilish Wog of Winder and the monstrous Hogzilla of River Oak Plantation, make appearances. There's also the fatal pillar in Augusta, the haunted orphanage in Savannah, the ghost of Mary MacRae searching for her lost love on St. Simon's Island, and dozens more.

I found several stories in this book interesting for the most part, but a few are just plain boring. Read full review
