“Ghostly Cries From Dixie by Pat Fitzhugh is plain ole fun! Richly written, it bounces from story to story, relating tales of death, murder, and accidents and their ghostly after-effects. It is part history, part legend, part supernatural, with a dash...”
ostly and unusual tales from the land of cypress swamps and moonshine stills, author Pat Fitzhugh meticulously recounts Dixie's most terrifying legends and the haunted history behind them. From an abandoned TB hospital in Kentucky where former patients roam the halls, to a New Orleans mansion where mutilated servants roam the courtyard, your spine will tingle. From a Louisiana Voodoo queen who casted spells, to a fiendish entity who tormented an early Tennessee family, Dixie's most notorious characters will leave you spellbound. From a preacher who cursed a rural Georgia town into oblivion, to a West Virginia woman whose testimony from the grave helped convict her killer, you will meet Dixie's most interesting people. From the Devil's reputed playground in North Carolina, to a phantom light on a lonely Texas road, you will visit Dixie's weirdest locations. From a West Virginia prison where more than 80 men died, to the location of a fiery steamboat explosion in Arkansas, you will experience Dixie's most horrific tragedies. These stories will never go away or become outdated. They, along with the landscape of our region, are permanently etched into our human experience. Through personal interviews, travels, and research, Pat Fitzhugh artfully serves up a collectible book of mystery, awe, and spiritual refreshment. Come on a terrifying journey down the road less traveled, where ghosts, haints, and spirits stand watch over the cypress-filled swamps, old houses, and forgotten graveyards of Dixie.
