Publisher's Summary

This collection of tales was originally published as An Illustrated Guide to Ghosts and Mysterious Occurrences in the Old North State. To her group of classic stories, Mrs. Roberts has added three new tales about the Carolina coastal areas. The mountains, Piedmont, Eastern Carolina, and the Outer Banks all provide settings for the unique and haunting accounts found in this book. Six of the stories take place in the Outer Banks - a particularly inspiring location and the perfect place to meet the ghost on Blackbeard's last voyage.

©1959, 1967 Nancy Roberts; 1992 by University of South Carolina Press (P)2016 Audible, Inc.

Critic Reviews

"Fleet Cooper's spirited performance brings out the history and hauntings of the Carolinas. Cooper's narration is unhurried as he paints the variety of settings in these 19 stories. His assortment of animated voices and accents invokes the myriad characters, who include distressed sailors, Southern ladies, and a menacing pirate who rolls his 'r's with a gruff growl. Cooper's storytelling adds drama to the suspense while his thoughtful presentation of backstory augments the eerie atmosphere of each tale. Though spookiness abounds, there's no gore, making this a fun listen for children as well as adults." (AudioFile magazine)
