I grew up enjoying hearing Kathryn Tucker Windham tell storied in my elementary classrooms! She got me hooked on storytelling, and maybe even on ghost stories too. Since I grew up in Alabama, this book was the first of Windham's that I read, so it holds a special place in my heart. ( )

I have always loved this book since I was little. This book was legendary among schoolchildren in Alabama in the 70s and 80s. Such fun to read some of the ghost stories from state history. ( )

Can I just tell you that I LOVE Kathryn Tucker Windham. Hers were the first ghost stories I ever read and had the distinction of being the only ones that earned my Mum's approval. This book was in my house growing up and was a favorite of mine. Ms. Windham has an amazing talent for making history come to life with her stories; I remember more history from her books than I do my Alabama History class. Maybe it was the touch of mysticism that found its way into her stories. Each story is well-written and vibrant and her talent shines through. ( )
