Civil War ghosts & legends by Nancy Roberts( Book )

5 editions published between 1992 and 2002 in English and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The countless horrible deaths and bloody strife of the Civil War have always haunted America--as these eerie stories reveal, and sometimes literally. The turbulence of that era has left us with extraordinary tales that serve as a reminder of the heroism displayed and the torture endured by the soldiers of both sides. A man from Harper's Ferry, bearing a striking resemblance to John Brown, is often asked to pose for photographs; but his image never appears when they are developed. The ghost of a murdered captain appears before his colonel and reveals who did the killing. A reenactment of J. E. B. Stuart's famous ride becomes a frightening reality as one man witnesses his great grandfather's fall in battle a hundred years prior. These, and other legends, uniquely blend suspense, mystery, and history

9 editions published between 1983 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The stories in this book are based upon actual events. During the course of her research into some of South Carolina's classic tales, Nancy Roberts heard accounts of happenings in the recent past and even the present day. They're all here: from the famous Gray Man of Pawleys Island who warns of coming storms to the ghost of the poor fellow whose small plane went down in the 1950s near Walhalla leaving him to forever hitchhike Highway 107. Everybody has heard of Alice of Murrells Inlet who is still looking for her lover's ring, but who haunts the house in Summerville, even now, and why? The 18 stories told here will have you looking over your shoulder and shuddering at even a gentle breeze — so take care. Supernatural occurrences in South Carolina are not all in the past!

The gold seekers : gold, ghosts, and legends from Carolina to California by Nancy Roberts( Book )

5 editions published between 1989 and 2013 in English and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author presents both a history of this first gold rush and a bounty of legends that evolved from it. She tells how it began in North Carolina, the state that supplied all domestic gold coined at the U.S. Mint between 1804 and 1828, and of the discovery of gold in Virginia, the Carolinas, Georgia, Alabama, and later in California and Colorado. She recounts how the Southern miners abandoned their mines within weeks of learning about the California gold strike, and, how for a while, they were said to be the only experienced miners working in the Western gold fields

This collection of tales was originally published as An Illustrated Guide to Ghosts and Mysterious Occurrences in the Old North State. To her group of classic stories, Roberts has added three new tales about the Carolina coastal areas. The mountains, Piedmont, eastern Carolina and the Outer Banks all provide settings for the unique and haunting accounts found in this book. Six of the stories take place in the Outer Banks — a particularly inspiring location, and the perfect place to meet the ghost on Blackbeard's last voyage
