Haints of the Hills

(2002)
(A book in the North Carolina's Haunted Hundred series)
A novel by

 
Daniel W. Barefoot's colleagues in the North Carolina General Assembly call him their "resident historian." Now, he's their resident folklorist, too.

North Carolina's Haunted Hundred, Barefoot's three-volume series, is a sampler of the diverse supernatural history of the Tar Heel State. One story is drawn from each of the state's hundred counties. You'll 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 state's mountainous west. You'll 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." You'll 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." You'll 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."
