Appalachia Mountain Folklore by Micheal Rivers

The mountains of the Appalachia abound with tales of ghosts and mysterious places. Covering 16 counties, 40 spine-tingling stories will have you traveling the roads and paths of those who have walked before you and listening to their sorrowful tales. Along the way, visit The Hanging Tree in Cabarrus County, Battle Mansion in Buncombe County, Green River Plantation in Rutherford County, and the House on the Hill in Jackson County. Sit around the campfire and hear stories of lore about the legend of the Bald, the warning of the Hunter's Moon, and the disappearance of an entire hunting party. Superstition, folklore, and the paranormal keep the spirits alive in the Appalachian region. Will you be the next one to visit with the ghosts of Cherohala?

This Is The Book You Want With You Around A Campfire: I'm no stranger to the great fiction stories this author weaves, having read all his books, however this is my first time reading him as a non-fiction author. It's not easy when an author is use to writing one type of genre to switch to another without the writing being a little weak but I am happy to say this is not the case with Appalachia Mountain Folklore. You can read and feel the research that went into the stories. The pictures of the scenes, though not needed to visualize, aid in lending even more impact. The folklore is very real and not imagined and each story captivated me. Micheal Rivers brings it in setting the background with each tale beginning with a history of the county or region and what led up to create the disturbance in these souls spirits. Ghosts and the supernatural, the folklore and actual sightings originate from love to revenge. I highly recommend the book to all readers who enjoy history, folklore and ghost stories. Don't be surprised when you lay the book down at the end you are left with compassion for the departed, a curiosity to visit each haunting, and a fear to stay as far away from there as you can.
