I have loved this collection of ghost stories since I was a child--Harden has a gift for campfire storytelling that continues to give me chills every time I read a story. I highly recommend this book for any Carolinian with an interest in the paranormal!

Another Window Into Our Past Dec 8 2011
By Thorstein Veblen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I just love this book. I am a 50 something who grew up in the old north state. When I was coming along, just about everybody in the fifth or sixth grade read this book and The Devil's Tramping Grounds both by John Harden.

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

Great North Carolina Ghost stories and lore. Nov. 13 2014
By BroBrock - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Great stories for those of us from North Carolina who can appreciate the history and lore of this great state. Loved this book when I was growing up. Glad to still see it available after all these years. Now I can share these spine tingling tales with my children too. The cover has been updated but still the same great book it always was. Frankly though I prefer the old blue cover with the ghostly man on the front.
