    Excellent book!

    Geordie Buxton takes his reader back to the era of plantations and slavery. The stories and legends in this book transpired in the coastal South Carolina region and the surrounding areas. Several mysterious apparitions are recounted in chilling detail. The lingering spirit often results from a discontented life that was tragically and unexpectedly cut short. Perhaps the spirit persists after death in an attempt to accomplish a goal that was never completed during life. It is interesting to note that the individuals acknowledged within these pages lived in unfortunate circumstances. Unrequited love, injustice, and enslavement prompted some of these tragic endings. Geordie writes with such empathy. He is clearly a very talented writer who has done his research. There is an impressive amount of historical information. Reading this book evokes a greater appreciation for the modern liberties we enjoy today.
