Overview

Stretching from Natchez, Mississippi, to Nashville, Tennessee, the Natchez Trace is one of the oldest, most historically significant routes in American history. Beginning as hunting ground for natives, the Trace became the favored path back home for early settlers who floated down the Mississippi River to sell goods in Natchez. Yet the Trace was riddled with bandits, marauders and other perils, and today troubled and tortured voices from the past still echo along the road. Travel to Grinder's Stand, where famed explorer Meriwether Lewis met his untimely demise, and on to Kings Tavern, built in the late 1700s and haunted by the ghost of the innkeeper's mistress. Author and ghost expert Bud 'Steed recounts these tales, and more, all lurking in the shadows of the haunted Natchez Trace.

Meet the Author

Born in Lima, Ohio, Bud Steed is the investigation manager for TOPS, The Ozarks Paranormal Society, based in southwest Missouri. A writer and accomplished photographer, Bud writes weekly columns for examiner.com covering the topics of photography and ghosts and ghost hunting. A lifelong interest in both the paranormal and history have led him to participate in several notable paranormal investigations, the most notable of these being the investigation at Wilson's Creek National Battlefield, where TOPS was the first team to receive a permit from the National Park Service to conduct an overnight investigation of both the battlefield and the historic Ray House. The investigation was filmed by the Travel Channel for its series Legends of the Ozarks and produced startling evidence of hauntings at Wilson's Creek.
A firm believer in giving back to his community, Bud enjoys speaking to local elementary school classes about the paranormal, writing and the importance of learning and working hard to achieve their goals. A Freemason belonging to Ash Grove Lodge #100, Bud also participated in the Missouri Child Identification Program (MOCHIP), a free program where parents can receive a computer disk containing all of their child's vital information, including electronic fingerprints and DNA. These disks work in conjunction with any police computer system to aid in Amber Alerts or identification should the child become missing.

Bud has spent much of his time traveling, including living in Germany and France, as well as touring most of Europe while in the army. He has also lived in nine different states since leaving his home in Ohio in 1979. Bud currently lives near Springfield, Missouri, with his wife, Jennifer, and their four children, David, Sean, Ciara Jo and Kerra.
