More than evoking chills down the spine and cautious glances
over one's shoulder, spooky stories create lasting bonds and
memories between friends and family. The tradition of storytelling
ties generations together with exciting new tales and familiar
folklore that has sparked superstitions and legends.
In Kentucky Hauntings: Homespun Ghost Stories and Unexplained
History, beloved storytellers Roberta Simpson Brown and Lonnie E.
Brown present a thrilling collection of paranormal tales that will
appeal to anyone looking for a friendly scare. Weaving together
factual accounts of unexplained events, peculiar headlines, and
local legends passed down from a time when most homes lacked
electricity, Kentucky Hauntings combines stories with commentary on
historic customs. From "telling the bees" about a death in the
family, to a friendly "fool's errand" practical joke gone horribly
wrong, and from terrifying haunted houses to the lifesaving
"Bathtub Ghost," readers are transported to a world of age-old
superstitions and paranormal experiences. Whether shared around the
fire on a crisp autumn night or whispered in a huddle of close
friends at a summer sleepover, these eerie stories will thrill and
excite anyone who loves a good scare.
