Altogether, Harden's hants are a very entertaining collection, and . . . they make an excellent piece of Caroliniana.Raleigh "News and Observer"

Both of these books are a collection of short descriptions of factual descriptions of the tales of Ghosts and mysterious phenomenon in North Carolinaa. Many of these tales have been handed down since the 1700's and 1800's. Others are historical histories of strange phenomenon that still are around today like the Brown Mountain Lights and the Devil's Tramping Grounds.
I really enjoyed them as a child so I decided to reread them again. In going back over them I discovered that the stories are taken from a radio show that John Harden had back in the fourties. This made the book all the more interesting as I am able to see these stories and North Carolina itself through the eyes of someone from sixty years ago when life was simpler and probably more enjoyable.
This book is kind of short and very easy to read. If you like this sort of thing you will not be disappointed.
Note I have written this same review for The Devil's Tramping Grounds
