Publisher's summary

Once again, in his 27th book, Hans Holzer embarks on a ghost hunt, this time in the haunted Southland. He ranges from Alabama, Arkansas, and Florida to Oklahoma, Texas, Virginia and the Carolinas, to Georgia and Louisiana and Maryland in quest of spectres, seeking out unusual places and unusual people.

From reports by reputable witnesses, Professor Holzer has gathered here firsthand accounts of psychic experiences; of ghosts seen or heard; or rickety houses and stately mansions whose otherworld inhabitants share the appointments with flesh-and-blood people.

Dixie, with its romantic moods and old-world charm, is particularly prone to harbor phantoms, such as the Gray Man of Pawley's Island, South Carolina, who warns of impending disaster, or headless Joe Baldwin and the famed Maco light of Wilmington. In perhaps the most chilling account, a Tyler, Texas, family suffers years of agony at the hands of a particularly destructive poltergeist. Insects come from nowhere to literally rain on them in their home, and heavy objects are seen to move through space.

The phantoms of Dixie are neither legendary nor figments of the imagination. They are the spirits of restless people who once lived out their normal lives, but died in distress or terror. If you are a psychic, and if you chance to visit some of the colorful places Hans Holzer describes in this book, perhaps you too will partake of the spine-tingling experiences these Southerners have lived through.

Good Collection of Reported True Ghost Stories

I really like original and true ghost stories. I have listened to a few different styles of true account tellings and this one was middle of the road. My favorite so far are the stories from Ed and Loraine Warren because they provided much more information about the hauntings and even went into the resolution. This was more just about the hauntings themselves and told from a here are the facts type of telling versus a campfire ghost story telling. While this comes off as these are completely real I feel quite a few of them every town has as their urban legend.
Pam Dougherty did a great job narrating the story and I would be happy to listen to more stories told by her.
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

Revisit the Ghosts of Dixie

I truly enjoyed reading through this book! Hans Holzer takes you on some of his investigations through the heart of Dixie, recounting some of the strange occurances and different hauntings that have plagued the people of these states for quite some time.

There is one case that goes longer than the others, due to the ongoing and terrifying nature of the phenomena, but it was interesting to read through.

Loved this book!
