Overview

In Ghost Tales from the North Carolina Piedmont, the authors have collected stories of hauntings that defy explanation-a soldier from the American Revolution screams as he relives his painful death over and over, all while he supposedly guards a treasure. A rural, nighttime phantom ignores adults but terrifies children. While exploring an underground chamber known as the Devil's Cave, some boys find that unspeakable things dwell in the darkness. A deceased father comes back to make sure his heirs find his revised will. A nineteenth-century Tar Heel chief justice may still glide through the corridors of his home. One spirit just likes to party. These stories and many more from the Piedmont Triad Region of North Carolina, most of which have never before been published, are sure to captivate and mystify.

From Revolutionary War soldiers screaming, to a deceased father giving his heirs his revised will, these tales from the Piedmont region of North Carolina involve every kind of ghost imaginable.
