Tales From Bloody Breathitt is much more than a ghost story book. It is a journey back in time, to a rural Eastern Kentucky communty filled with colorful characters and rugged, mysterious places. This collection of 16 short stories is told in a sincere, authentic voice that will make the reader feel like he or she is right there in the story. When you read this book you can imagine yourself climbing in an old tobacco barn with the ghost of a small boy who died many years ago: or maybe you'll look up and see the spirit of an old woman who refuses to leave the church she attended her whole life: and consider yourself lucky if the Buffalo Witch doesn't set her eyes on a man in your family. These stories are told from the heart, by an author who lived in the mountains of Eastern Kentucky, and they speak of a time that is quickly fading away.
