This book is by Randy Russell and Janet Barnett, a married couple who went to North Carolina for their honeymoon. They liked the stories they learned so much that they decided to share them with others by writing a book. Some are ghost stories, others are myths, but all are very interesting.The first story really drew me in. It was the story of an innocent accused of murder, and was later hanged for it, although there was really no proof he did it. Then, there are Cherokee tales, which being Cherokee myself, I really enjoyed them. There is the story of the white owl, hermits and many others. It is a well-written book. I think peope who are interested in myths and stories about North Carolina will enjoy this.
