Overview

Elizabeth Huntsinger Wolf, the author of two popular Low Country ghost-story collections, returns with a third volume of 18 stories. In this collection, Wolf moves beyond local haints and tells about eerie events and unsolved mysteries from the area.

Included are stories about a treasure buried along the Sampit River during the Civil War; the pirate Drunken Jack; Tom Yawkey and his beloved Cat Island; the mysterious fire that destroyed Kensington Park; the Pawleys Island Pavilion; George Trenholm and the lost money from the Confederate treasury; and the Sea View Inn on Pawleys Island.

A tired, hungry slave woman, upset at being denied her supper one night, places a curse on her plantation that lasts a hundred years.

At Magnolia Beach, a mermaid trapped in a bathing house gazes fervently at her storm ball and calls forth a hurricane that sets her free—and kills most members of the family that held her captive.

In 1953, the lovely Fiddler’s Green washes up high and dry on the southern end of Pawleys Island. The two brothers who buy her for salvage leave the scene for only thirty minutes—just long enough to find a body hanging from the mast when they return.

Actors at Georgetown’s Strand Theatre start to question their sanity one night after a performance. But then Granny Ghostbuster herself arrives to confirm the ghostly presences they feel.

Popular folklorist, storyteller, and tour guide Elizabeth Huntsinger Wolf is at her best in this collection of nineteen tales from that most mysterious and haunted of places, Georgetown County.

Meet the Author

Elizabeth Huntsinger Wolf wrote her first ghost story in between customers while working in the children’s department at a Belk's department store, but her love of ghost stories started at an early age while growing up in Manning, South Carolina. Wolf’s mother was told ghost stories by her grandmother. As a child, Wolf was told those same stories by her mother. However, her mother left out the scary stories to keep Elizabeth from having to check under the bed before she went to sleep every night.

Elizabeth attended the University of South Carolina at Sumter for three years before moving to Myrtle Beach in 1980. She received her B.A. in English from Coastal Carolina College in 1981. Her first book, Ghosts of Georgetown, was published in February 1995. More Ghosts of Georgetown was published in 1998.

Since 2001, Elizabeth has been a preschool storyteller and literacy instructor with the Georgetown County Library in collaboration with South Carolina First Steps. Each month, she visits approximately 40 preschools throughout the county to read books, tell stories, sing songs, and teach with puppets and finger plays.

Wolf lives in Maryville with her daughter, Virginia Lee, and husband, Bob. Elizabeth and her husband are the operators of the Ghosts of Georgetown Lantern Tours, a narrative 1½-mile walk through Georgetown’s National Register Historic District. Dressed in colonial or Civil War attire, they lead visitors through the city with kerosene lanterns. The family also participates in Civil War reenactments.
