Haunted New Orleans: Ghosts and Hauntings of the Crescent City

( 3 )

Overview

The very name of New Orleans conjures up a succulent variety of images, from the sounds of jazz to whirring ceiling fans, wrought iron balconies and hot spicy food.

Overview

The very name of New Orleans conjures up a succulent variety of images, from the sounds of jazz to whirring ceiling fans, wrought iron balconies and hot spicy food. These are the images of the city that many people think of... but there is another side to the city as well, a darkness that is as carefully hidden as the gates to the small courtyards that lurk secretly between buildings in the Vieux Carre. The dark side is always present and it is as compelling as the chicory-laced coffee and the beignets. It's a dark side filled with seductive images of Voodoo, vampires and ghosts... for only in New Orleans could darkness and death seem so appealing!

Now take a journey back in time and explore this dark side with author Troy Taylor as he uncovers tales of some of the most famous, and infamous, hauntings in the city! From ghostly cemeteries to haunted houses, this book is a trip through the history of New Orleans like no other you have ever taken before!

    History, Mystery and Haunted Places

    I have several books written by Troy Taylor and I find them interesting from a historical as well as a paranormal standpoint. My only real complaint with Mr. Taylor's books are the numerous typographical errors I have noted in his books. Sometimes this throws the reader off. Otherwise, the books are interesting and informative.
