Summary : Ghost Stories from the American Southwest

These shivery tales were collected from the oral tradition, from people all over the Southwest, and represent the rich cultural diversity of the region, from the Ozarks to the Rio Grande, California to the Big Thicket. There are stories from the Spanish-American, Mexican-American, Cajun, Ozark, and other tranditions.
Old favorites such as "Mary Calhoun" and "The Vanishing Hitchhiker" are here, along with the ghostly mother who keeps her baby supplied with milk, the haunted mansion which was the model for Scarlett O'Hara's Tara, and stories laced with truly black humor.

For Ages 12 to Adult
