In Appalachia, family ties and respect for the land run deep. So do spooky tales and legends, which are told again and again over the years. In this part of the world, the telling of such stories is an art to be fine-tuned. Gathered from those who have lived in the foothills for generations, here are accounts of graveyard ghosts, mountain spirits, premonitions in the night, a haunted cupboard, a runaway train, and a blood red stain. Included are stories of...
- A gnome-like creature that drove the Dunlaps from their house in Chatsworth, Georgia.
- William Stevenson, who appeared in a picture of his great-grandson's birthday party - thirteen years after William's death.
- A Confederate soldier who stopped at the Millers' home a few years ago looking for General Braxton Bragg.
- The red-haired woman who died in a car wreck and appears in speeders' rear-view mirrors to warn them of danger.
Specters and Spirits of the Appalachian Foothills allows you to hear the cries and meet the spirits that inhabit the mountains from northern Georgia to southern Virginia.
