Review

"Georgia could not have asked for a better chronicler of its ghostly abodes and spectral inhabitants." -Dennis William Hauck, author of Haunted Places: The National Directory -- -Dennis William Hauck, author of Haunted Places: The National Directory

"Georgia natives and adventurous tourists who want something different from the standard travel guide now have a chilling alternate_a collection of supernatural tales frightening enough to satisfy even the most discerning ghost hunter." -Michael Norman, coauthor of Haunted America, Historic Haunted America, and Haunted Heartland -- -Michael Norman, coauthor of Haunted America, Historic Haunted America, and Haunted Heartland

From the Back Cover

As the author of twelve ghost story collections, Nancy Roberts may certainly be considered an expert on the subject of the supernatural. Now she turns her attention to Georgia, capturing over fifty chilling stories from the Peachtree State. Perhaps no other city in this country is as haunted as Savannah. Beneath this city's romantic facade lies a multitude of eerie tales. Here, Roberts describes the pirates that still reside in the Pirates' House Restaurant, the angry spirit who haunts the Shrimp Factory restaurant, the strange happenings in the house of Jim Williams_the central character in the book Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil_and many other spooky stories. The ghost stories of Savannah are only the beginning, though, for Georgia Ghosts takes you on a supernatural tour throughout the state. On St. Simons Island, you will shiver at the account of the ghost who haunts the island's lighthouse. In Atlanta, you'll hear of the ghost who now resides in the "Uncle Remus" House. In Fayetteville, you'll learn why the legendary gunslinger "Doc" Holliday still waits outside the home of a lost love. And you will wonder about the identity of the mysterious man responsible for Georgia's own version of Stonehenge located near Elberton. From haunted college towns and opera houses to tales of werewolves that roam the countryside, no other collection covers the contemporary and classic ghost stories of the state as completely as Georgia Ghosts.

Format: Paperback
The fifty-four cases presented in this book span the entire state of Georgia from the colonial coast and islands to the historic heartland and classic south all the way to the northern mountains. Each case is a real place with addresses and directions on how to find it, and reading this book is like having a personal tour guide to the Peachtree State's most haunted places. The section on Savannah, one of America's most haunted cities, contains such noted paranormal spots as the Pirate's House, the 17Hundred90 Inn, the Hampton Lillibridge House, and Jim William's House (from the book Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil), as well as lesser known hauntings such as the Shrimp Factory restaurant and the Keyhoe House inn. In Atlanta, Roberts introduces us to the ghost of the Uncle Remus House, the cantankerous spirits at Dunwoody House, and the Pink Lady, an apparition encountered by the Roberts family when Nancy was a teenager growing up in the Little Five Points section of Atlanta. An interesting tale from Fayetteville recounts the fate Doc Holliday's persistent ghost, who still waits outside the home of a lost love there. One recent case that Roberts reveals is taking place at the Big Canoe Resort near Jasper in the northwest mountains of Georgia. For the past few years, the tall ghost of an Indian has been appearing to employees at the Sconti Clubhouse. "He is most likely to appear when the place is quiet and nobody else is around," said witness Billy Howard. "On Wednesday mornings, when I go in to work about three or four o'clock in the morning, he is at the clubhouse. He's always curious about what I'm doing and wants to watch everything." Recently, the ghost started making noises for the first time.Read more ›

Format: Paperback
The stories Ms. Roberts shares are well-written and chilling. Georgia residents, in great detail, give eye-witness accounts of their experiences. Ms. Roberts writes these eye-witness accounts without being biased that spirits remain behind or not. A great travel guide to visit the historical south.

Format: Paperback
I recommend this book for anyone who lives in Georgia.
I live in Bowdon, Georgia where the haunted Inn is in the
book. I know the woman who lives in the Inn. She told
me one time that she had a guest in the house and they
were talking in the hallway , and that a door slamed shut
right in front of the guest. The guest left vowing never
to come back.

I read this book years ago and then recently ordered another copy. It's a very interesting older nonfiction ghost book and I wanted to have a copy for my collection. I'm very picky about these types of books...and this one is good!
