A GUIDE TO THE SITE OF GHOSTLY APPEARANCES AND MYSTERIOUS HAPPENINGS ALONG THE COAST FROM WILMINGTON, NORTH CAROLINA, THROUGH SOUTH CAROLINA'S FABLES LOW COUNTRY, TO SAVANNAH, GEORGIA

Author Nancy Rhyne, an experienced tour guide and acclaimed storyteller, takes you on a ghostly tour through part of the United States that she believes is richer in folklore and tales of strange happenings than any other.The folklore of this region is heavily influenced by both the lavish lifestyle of the wealthy colonial rice plantation owners and the superstitions and customs brought from Africa by the slaves who cultivated this land.

The twenty-five tales in this collection can be enjoyed as pure entertainment -- for these stories are full of strange occurrances, bizzare twists, and intriguing bits of history. But, the geographical grouping of the tales also provides an unusual tour guide. You'll visit houses built in a long-ago age and tiny churches where the colonists worshiped. You'll stroll down cobblestone streets and walk along reiverfronts where pirates came ashore with their bounty.
