A collection of fifteen storiesâ€”some well-known, some lesser known, and some brand newâ€”about West Virginia ghostly creatures. Beautifully illustrated with original paintings by Erin Turner, the stories are perfect for childrenâ€™s story time or a family campfire. Natives will recognize and enjoy tales of the stateâ€™s most famous creatures and ghosts: the red-eyed Mothman, the green-cloaked Flatwoods Monster, and the unstoppable Greenbrier Ghost.
Other stories focus on strange beings spotted the world over: aliens, the fabled Bigfoot, and UFOâ€™s. The Mountain Stateâ€™s seclusion has attracted stories about giant catfish, apple pickers, and mythic birds. Headless ghost, the ogua water monster, and haunted houses are also included.
As home to a volatile and sometimes bloody history weâ€™ve been left with more than our share of disgruntled spirits.
