North and South Carolina are steeped in history—some of it supernatural. The “custodian of the twilight zone” shares their spookiest tales (Southern Living). 
Nancy Roberts, known as the “First Lady of American Folklore,” is a topnotch storyteller and one of the few who both write and tell their own stories. For more than two decades, Ms. Roberts has documented ghost stories and interviewed hundreds of people throughout the United States. 
A nationally known author of twenty-three books, Ms. Roberts began her career with a series of ghost stories written for The Charlotte Observer. Carl Sandburg sent her word that her stories were good, suggesting “they should be a book.” Since then her books have won her a certificate of commendation from the American Association for State and Local History and a nomination for the Great Western Writer’s Spur Award. 
Ms. Roberts has a special love for encounters with Southern specters. A native of North Carolina, she grew up listening to the ghost stories of the Old South. In this collection of her favorites, Ms. Roberts tells of the phantoms who haunt the Carolinas and the people who have witnessed their appearances firsthand. 
Praise for Nancy Roberts 
“Just about everybody likes a good ghost story. And ghost hunter/author Nancy Roberts has put together as shivery a selection of other worldly tales as you’re likely to find anywhere . . . And whether you believe in ghosts or not, these tales are guaranteed to give you a chill, especially before you go into a dark room alone.” —Southern Living
