Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Ghosts of the Bluegrass is a treasure trove of stories from Kentuckians." —Heather Chapman, Lexington Herald-Leader" —

"Authors James McCormick and Macy Wyatt introduce you to the notorious spirits dwelling among us in Ghosts of the Bluegrass." —Kentucky Monthly" —

"Ghosts is a humorous, sometimes scary collection of first-hand accounts of the supernatural in Central Kentucky." —Larry Muhammad, courier-journal.com" —

"Whether you read this collection with enthusiasm or with skepticism, you are bound to learn a few things about people who believe ghosts exist after physical death from the family tales and first hand experiences that truly cannot be explained." —Hardin Company Historical Society" —

"I felt like I was there sitting down with some of the area's best storytellers, hearing authentic stories. McCormick and Wyatt have done a tremendous service to current readers and to future generations by preserving this important part of our heritage."—Roberta Simpson Brown, author of The Walking Trees and Other Scary Stories and The Queen of the Cold-Blooded Tales" —

"The compilers have done an excellent job of editing, inserting helpful explanatory or historic notes to add to information on a particular story, and giving cross references for like stories."—Kentucky Kaleidoscope" —

"Nicely laid out and well edited.... An inexpensive tool for those researching tale types in central Kentucky, and perhaps useful in enticing other students toward interest in fieldwork projects."—Western Folklore" —

"Bell witch stories, ghostly dogs, campus ghosts, rattling chains—all are here, with titles like 'The Gray Lady of Liberty Hall' and 'Family Banshee Foretells Deaths." In sum, this is a fine anthology with extremely interesting and readable ghost stories, worth reading for the charm of the stories themselves." — Journal of Folklore Research" —

"A thorough treatment of what ghost stories may be found in central Kentucky."—Western Folklore" —
