Overview

Life on the Texas frontier was full of hardships for a woman born to be a Southern Belle. From the moment she arrived, Jenny hated the land and the weather, the people and their coarse behavior, even the cabin she was forced to live in—and the spiders and scorpions she had to share it with. For at least a hundred years since her death, Erath County residents have reported seeing Jenny's ghost hovering near the McDow Hole on Green's Creek. They ask themselves how Jenny's restless spirit can still be chained to the place that caused her so much pain. How is it that she can find no answers to the questions that tormented her in life? The Ghost of Jenny tells the story from the point of view of the ghost herself.
