Windham choose 13 of the best stories from her acclaimed series of
Southern ghost stories. Introduced in 1969 with 13 Alabama Ghosts and
Jeffrey, these delightfully mysterious tales relate supernatural doings
from across the region. The first volume was so popular that the author
followed up with five more. The new book, Jeffrey's Favorite 13 Ghost
Stories from Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, and Mississippi, with an
