From the Back Cover:

 Pull up a chair or gather round the campfire and get ready for twenty-five creepy tales of ghostly hauntings, eerie happenings, and other strange occurrences in North Carolina. From the phantom railroad conductor who shines his lantern along the tracks near Maco to the grisly mass hanging re-created on dark nights by a swamp near Smithfield, the stories in this entertaining and compelling collection will have you looking over your shoulder again and again.
North Carolina folklore traditions are kept alive in these expert retellings by master storyteller S. E. Schlosser and through artist Paul Hoffman’s evocative illustrations. You’ll meet ghosts and witches, hear things that go bump in the night, and feel an icy wind on the back of your neck on a warm summer evening. Whether read around the campfire on a dark and dreary night or from the backseat of the family van on the way to Grandma’s, this is a collection to treasure. Raleigh
