About the Author

Kathryn Tucker Windham grew up in Thomasville, Alabama, the youngest child in a large family of storytellers. For many years a Selma resident, Windham was a freelance writer, collected folklore, and photographed the changing scenes of her native South. A nationally recognized storyteller and a regular fixture on Alabama Public Radio, her commentaries were also featured on National Public Radio's "All Things Considered." Her other books include Jeffrey Introduces Thirteen More Southern Ghosts, Jeffrey's Latest Thirteen, Thirteen Georgia Ghosts and Jeffrey, Thirteen Mississippi Ghosts and Jeffrey, and Thirteen Tennessee Ghosts and Jeffrey.

Writer and folklorist Margaret Gillis Figh was a frequent contributor to Southern Folklore Quarterly.
Reviews
"Spine-tingling with a twang . . ."
--National Public Radio's "All Things Considered"

"Kathryn's stories are told with an engaging clarity of style that makes it easy to tumble into the tale."
--Huntsville Times
"In Windham's tales . . . myth and fact intertwine to present a picture of the South that is as true as any textbook."
--Paris Review
