More About the Author
Micheal Rivers is the pseudonym for Mike Baugham. His Cherokee heritage prompted him to honor his great-grandfather and write under the name of Rivers. He grew up near the Outer Banks of North Carolina. His love of the sea and all it has to offer was the driving force of his first novel The Black Witch. As a child, he became aware of the supernatural world due to several experiences. A recognized authority as a paranormal investigator with more than thirty years of research, teaching classes and giving speeches provides his readers with some of his experiences woven into his paranormal thrillers. He is the lead investigator for the Smokey Mountain Ghost Trackers.
He has been writing since 1993 and was first published in 2003. His works include supernatural thrillers, literary fiction and his ghost story anthologies are published by Schiffer Publishing. He is currently working on sequels and an action/adventure series.
Micheal is a USMC veteran and served during Vietnam. The passions in his life are his wife, family, Boxer Delilah affectionately known as DeeDee, and the great outdoors.

I'm no stranger to the great fiction stories this author weaves, having read all his books, however this is my first time reading him as a non-fiction author. It's not easy when an author is use to writing one type of genre to switch to another without the writing being a little weak but I am happy to say this is not the case with Appalachia Mountain Folklore. You can read and feel the research that went into the stories. The pictures of the scenes, though not needed to visualize, aid in lending even more impact. The folklore is very real and not imagined and each story captivated me. Micheal Rivers brings it in setting the background with each tale beginning with a history of the county or region and what led up to create the disturbance in these souls spirits. Ghosts and the supernatural, the folklore and actual sightings originate from love to revenge. I highly recommend the book to all readers who enjoy history, folklore and ghost stories. Don't be surprised when you lay the book down at the end you are left with compassion for the departed, a curiosity to visit each haunting, and a fear to stay as far away from there as you can.
