Haunting The Outer Banks: Thirteen Tales Of Terror From The North Carolina Coast by Joe Sledge
On an island there is nowhere to hide. That's why these ghost stories scare and delight us so much. The Outer Banks is full of life and death tales, but death doesn't always mean the end of the tale. Haunting The Outer Banks has thirteen tales from North Carolina's coast. Readers will discover the spectral tales of houses haunted by owners long dead, but still lingering in the shadows. Is there the spirit of a young girl that haunts the Whalehead Club in Corolla? Do the sad, restless spirits of the lost still walk the beaches at Nags Head and Hatteras, searching forever for their ships, sunk by the churning waves of the Atlantic? Read their stories here.
Discover the tales that have been told across this thin ribbon of sand, from Corolla to Ocracoke, of pirates getting their bloody ends, only to be cursed to haunt the land and sea, or of a witch that brought fortune, good and bad, to locals according to her whim. Currituck, Bodie Island, and Hatteras Lighthouses all have ghosts that haunt them, even a supernatural animal that wanders in the shadow of Cape Hatteras. Roanoke Island shares its story of spooky hoodoos that chase children when they come out to play at night. Lock the doors, turn on the lights, and check the beach for ghosts. Then open the book and prepare to be scared.
