Here are thirteen tales of haunted roads, mysterious lights, strange
sightings, and a lingering curse—stories about places we know
from storytellers that hail from North Carolina’s Piedmont: from
Charlotte and Concord, to Mooresville and Winston-Salem.
This beautiful book includes accounts of the first sightings of the
leathery looking, three-toed Lake Norman Sea Monster, as well as the
tale of an altruistic spirit who points his heir towards $100,000. And
in a Davidson-based story, George Washington’s spectre makes an
appearance, too. For animal lovers, there are a couple of dogs (one
frisky and one savage), a fateful cat that lures lost drivers off a
road, and a flock of vultures.
