Publisher's Summary

In the land of moss, magnolias, and bayous, ghost stories suffuse the landscape like mist on a moonlit swamp. Swamp ghosts, hot-tempered villains, and tricksters once lived there, and live on today in such blood-chilling stories as the six in this collection.

Brilliant and Scary

The description says ages 8 to adult, but I'm glad I waited until my daughter was 11 before listening to these stories. Some are quite scary and leave lasting impressions. Wonderful stuff, though! She's a real treasure!

Best all around

These stories are well thought out and read very well. There's a hint of scare and a good dose of morality without the least bit of preachiness. These all seem like timeless stories that have been handed down for centuries.

Frightfully Fun Southern Storytelling

I chose this book Because I had enjoyed a couple of Ms. Reneaux's stories on The Moonlight Road webpage. I was not disappointed. These stories have the flavor of old southern storytelling, and are the sorts of fun, spooky tales for an entire family to enjoy on an October night around a bonfire. If you still have fond memories of Halloween nights and campfire tales, and if you love the unique traditions and folktales of Louisiana, you will certainly enjoy this audiobook.
