Daniel W. Barefoots colleagues in the North Carolina General Assembly call him their “resident historian.” Now, hes their resident folklorist, too.North Carolinas Haunted Hundred, Barefoots three-volume series, is a sampler of the diverse supernatural history of the Tar Heel State. One story is drawn from each of the states hundred counties. Youll find tales of ghosts, witches, demons, spook lights, unidentified flying objects, unexplained phenomena, and more. Many of the stories have never before been widely circulated in print.Haints of the Hills is a collection of twenty-seven tales from the states mountainous west. Youll be chilled to learn of the red-and-white-striped monstrosity that may still inhabit the Valley River at the site the Indians called the “Leech Place,” as told in the Cherokee County story, “The Giant Bloodsucker.” Youll be warmed by the Christ-like stranger who came to Bat Cave to repair a rift between neighbors, then vanished as mysteriously as he arrived, as revealed in the Henderson County story, “The Carpenter.” Youll want to travel the lonely stretch of road in Avery County where locals have witnessed the spirit of Captain Robert Sevier, the seven-foot-tall hero of the American Revolution, as laid out in “The Long Trek Home.”
