Louisiana has long had a reputation for its hauntings. This evocative book delves into ghostly escapades and unexplained happenings at various historic sites throughout the state. In the confidential tones of a seasoned raconteur, author Barbara Sillery conjures the terror and mystery of the spectral South.
Based on the PBS documentary of the same name, The Haunting of Louisiana showcases many of the stories and behind-the-scenes incidents that would not fit into the one-hour television program.
Barbara Sillery is a television producer, writer, and co-owner of Keepsake Productions, Inc., which specializes in award-winning cultural documentaries. She has always been fascinated with death and the "ability of souls of the dead to return for the occasional visit" and continues to bring the past into the present through her tireless work. Her daughter Danielle Genter contributed photographs to this book.
Sillery's business partner and award-winning photographer, Oak Lea, was nominated for a Suncoast Regional Emmy Award for directing The Haunting of Louisiana, which also received a national Telly Award and two WorldFest awards.

The stories are of families from past and present who welcome you into the world of their home and the spirit's stories who reside in their home. Each story is of a place in its own world with a fantastic atmosphere of what life what like for the owners of these plantations and the lives of the spirits and entities left behind. Shorts stories, easy to read, hard to put the book down.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
