146 pp, 8vo (8 1/2" H). "Witches who fly down chimneys. A chair that won't release its occupant until a drop of blood stains the floor. A mountain that grew - and continues to grow - from the grave of a woman who was larger than life. The ghost of a woman who jumps on the bumpers of cars driving past the graveyard where she is buried. An apple tree that growls at people who pick its fruit. A woman who rose from her grave each night to get food for a baby born to her after she had died. A peach tree that grows on the head of a deer. These and other legends and ghost stories handed down for generations are contained in this collection of twenty-five tales from East Tennessee. The locales for these stories range from Roan Mountain to Chattanooga; from Cades Cove to Hancock County, where the Melungeons live; from the Sequatchie Valley to the Cumberland Plateau. The stories themselves are enhanced by Appalachian folk wisdom and tidbits about mountain traditions." This is a new unread book, in publisher's shrinkwrap.
