Both enlightening and entertaining, The Face in the Window is the first scholarly collection of ghostlore from throughout the state of Alabama. Alan Brown has traveled the state collecting stories and photographs illustrating the places that gave rise to the eerie tales. Brown re-creates the experience of actually hearing the tales by reproducing here each story exactly as it was told. In addition, he includes an analysis of the folk motifs and themes that run through the ghostlore commonly found in Alabama and examines their contribution to folk traditions.
