In this collection, Wolf moves beyond local haints and tells about eerie events and unsolved mysteries from the area.Included are stories about a treasure buried along the Sampit River during the Civil War- the pirate Drunken Jack- Tom Yawkey and his beloved Cat Island- the mysterious fire that destroyed Kensington Park- the Pawleys Island Pavilion- George Trenholm and the lost money from the Confederate treasury- and the Sea View Inn on Pawleys Island.A tired, hungry slave woman, upset at being denied her supper one night, places a curse on her plantation that lasts a hundred years.At Magnolia Beach, a mermaid trapped in a bathing house gazes fervently at her storm ball and calls forth a hurricane that sets her free—and kills most members of the family that held her captive.In 1953, the lovely Fiddler’s Green washes up high and dry on the southern end of Pawleys Island. The two brothers who buy her for salvage leave the scene for only thirty minutes—just long enough to find a body hanging from the mast when they return.Actors at Georgetown’s Strand Theatre start to question their sanity one night after a performance. But then Granny Ghostbuster herself arrives to confirm the ghostly presences they feel.Popular folklorist, storyteller, and tour guide Elizabeth Huntsinger Wolf is at her best in this collection of nineteen tales from that most mysterious and haunted of places, Georgetown County.
