The late J.J. Reneaux was known for her skillful telling of Cajun ghostlore from the swamps and bayous of Louisiana. In Haunted Bayou, she draws from this unique gumbo of superstition, ghost stories, and true life experience, weaving ten original short stories and three traditional tales on timeless themes: the struggle between truth and illusion, faith and temptation, good and evil.
