When Spirits Walk
My favorite Chapters in the book are The Haunted Train Depot, which takes you back to the Civil War and tells the story of the fall of Huntsville to the Federal Army. Wrapped in bloody detail and with a lovely picture of a ghost staring down from a second story window, this chapter is sure to pique the interest of any lover of ghost stories. I also love her chapter on the Dallas Mill, which I have discussed here on several occasions. Her retelling of this story is wonderful and worth the read. In short, if you are looking for a book on regional ghost stories and are interested in Southern history Ms. Jacquelyn Gray’s book is a fabulous read worth the time. And if you are living here in the South and interested in ghost stories, if her ghost tours have any of the detail she gave me this morning, you are in for a real treat!
