For so long as Mississippi has existed (and then some), flocks of phantoms have haunted the mortal population of the Magnolia kingdom. In Thirteen Mississippi Ghosts and Jeffrey, best-selling folklorist Kathryn Tucker Windham, with her trusty spectral better half Jeffrey, introduces 13 of the nation’ s most renowned ghost stories.


Although tales approximately Mississippi’ s spirits possible outnumber the ghosts themselves, Windham observes that “ Southern ghost stories are disappearing simply because humans not sit down round at the porch on summer season nights and inform tales. The previous those who grew up with those tales are loss of life now, and the tales are loss of life with them.”


Fortunately for us, Windham was once a author devoted to conserving those stories in print. The veteran writer spent decades monitoring down those tales and chronicling the easiest ones. From the ghost of Mrs. McEwen nonetheless donning her cherished cameo pin and preserving a watchful eye over Featherston position, her domestic in Holly Springs, the place, she swore, she might remain without end, to the ghostly visage mounted completely at the bed room window pane of Catherine McGehee, who searched the horizon ardently for her unrequited like to come to her as promised at chilly Spring Plantation in Pinckneyville, Windham’ s tales hide the breadth and intensity of Mississippi— every now and then extra moonlight than magnolia.


An enduring vintage, this commemorative variation restores Thirteen Mississippi Ghosts and Jeffrey to the ghastly grandeur of its unique 1974 edition.
