The back roads of the Northwest Georgia Appalachian hills and valleys hold a breathtaking beauty by day, but when darkness descends, there's a different story. Through twenty-four haunting tales, read the stories passed down from generation to generation, some so frightful that never a word was spoken—until now. Discover a ghostly horse pulling a hearse through a lonely county cemetery each night, a phantom dressed in black wreaking havoc on a lonely stretch of highway, and ghostly twins held captive in an attic seeking playmates among the living. Meet the spirits of Cherokee braves and Civil War soldiers, and catch the train that rolls along a track that no longer exists. Like the mountains that hold them, these phantoms are reminders of the sad and often dark past of Georgia. The supernatural is a reality here. Experience it for yourself.
