This collection of tales was originally published as An Illustrated Guide to Ghosts and Mysterious Occurences in the Old North State. To her group of classic stories, Mr. Roberts has added three new tales about the Carolina coastal areas. The mountains, Piedmont, eastern Carolina, and the Outer Banks all provide settings for the unique and haunting accounts found in this book. Six of the stories take place in the Outer Banks—a particularly inspiring location, and the perfect place to meet the ghost on Blackbeard's last voyage.
