Overview

Replete with the tales of swashbuckling pirates guarding their last stolen treasure, "Blackbeard the Pirate," represents just one of the extraordinary tales that Alpheus Chewning documents in his latest book. By delving into the creepy, unexplored avenues of Virginia Beach's past, Chewning entrances the reader with the spectral details of Blackbeard's buried treasure, a deadly stretch of road inexplicably responsible for eighty-nine fatalities in the past thirty years and the untimely death of a military wife, devilishly titled "Don't Make Mom Mad"- just to name a few.

In a collection of forty stories gleaned from newspapers and personal interviews, Chewning sheds an eerie light on the prosperous tourist hot spot that is Welcoming by day, otherworldly by night. A longtime resident of the Virginia Beach area and the owner of the Original Virginia Beach Ghost Walk, the author tells not only of reported sightings but also of his own spectral encounters. From a "wailing woman" in the Old Coast Guard Station to supernatural activity provoked by the association of two friends, Chewning offers up spine-tingling apparitional tales that will shock and delight visitors and locals alike.
