A heady mix of paranormal tales from India to give the reader goose-bumps, handed down verbally from generation to generation. Supernatural sightings of female demons, disguised as lovely women, set out to lure unsuspecting young men to their death. Reincarnated spirits born again, ghostly apparitions of dead relatives, haunted houses, grave robbers and spooks arising from their tombs at the stroke of mid-night, local superstition and myths form part of the anecdotes. These collected stories, were always related to pass the time before going to bed in the days when there were no TVs or cyber activities to serve as distractions. The narrator often was the family patriarch and the audience were generally family members and any visiting guests. The selected settings for listening to the stories were ideal – either on house terraces or front yards of homes amidst the dark shadows of the palms and other trees lit only by starlight or moonlight. Silence reigned except for the occasional sounds of the hooting of resident owls from abandoned old houses adding to the eerie atmosphere.

" West Virginia boasts an unusually rich heritage of ghost tales. Originally West Virginians told these hundred stories not for idle amusement but to report supernatural experiences that defied ordinary human explanation. From jealous rivals and ghostly children to murdered kinsmen and omens of death, these tales reflect the inner lives—the hopes, beliefs, and fears—of a people. Like all folklore, these tales reveal much of the history of the region: its isolation and violence, the passions and bloodshed of the Civil War era, the hardships of miners and railroad laborers, and the lingering vitality of Old World traditions.
