Jeffrey is the mischievous “something” that has headquarters in the Windham home in Selma. He first made his presence known in October 1966, and since then he has continued, at irregular and infrequent intervals, to clump down the hall, slam doors, rock in a chair, frighten the family cat (now deceased—through no fault of Jeffrey), move heavy pieces of furniture, cause electronic equipment to malfunction, and hide objects.

He frequently accompanies Mrs. Windham on her travels, and tales of Jeffrey’s antics are widely recounted. “Nobody has ever been afraid of Jeffrey,” Mrs. Windham says. “He is very convenient to have—we blame everything that goes awry on him. His only purpose for existing (if that word is proper) is to prod me into collecting and preserving ‘true’ ghost stories from throughout the South.”

About the Author:

Kathryn Tucker Windham (d. 2011) grew up in Thomasville, Alabama, the youngest child in a large family of storytellers. A Selma resident, Mrs. Windham was a freelance writer, collected folklore, and photographed the changing scenes of her native South. She was a nationally recognized storyteller and a frequent commentator on National Public Radio's "All Things Considered."

 

Review:

“Ghost stories have a very real place in the folklore and the history of a state or a nation. After all, who should be better able to tell of happenings long past than the ghosts of those who had a part in them?”
—Miss Bessie Lewis, author of They Called Their Town Darien: Being a Short History of Darien and McIntosh County, Georgia

“Spine-tingling with a twang . . .”
—National Public Radio’s “All Things Considered”

“In Windham’s tales . . . myth and fact intertwine to present a picture of the South that is as true as any textbook.”
Paris Review
