Riassunto: New Orleans has been called the most haunted city in America, and with good reason. But there are more ghosts in Louisiana than can be held in one city and the plantations of this state, with their luxurious buildings and centuries old trees, are the ideal resting ground for spectral inhabitants. In some places there are questions about the existence of ghosts. At Louisiana’s plantations the question is how many?
In this collection of thirteen chilling tales you will explore the ghosts along the River Road at some of Louisiana’s best known plantations, and also along the back bayous of the state. You will encounter the ghosts of the most haunted house in America, meet ladies in white and black who refuse to leave, learn of spectral children who continue to play, Civil War soldiers trapped where they died, pirates guarding buried treasure and even the ghosts of homes that met a fiery end. These true tales will delight and frighten you during your unique journey through the bayou state.
Never before has a collection of ghost stories focused exclusively on the plantations of Louisiana. Every site featured in this book is open to the public either through tours or as a bed and breakfast. In addition to providing enjoyable stories, Louisiana’s Haunted Plantations also serves as a unique guidebook to the plantations of the state complete with contact information for all the sites featured.
Jill Pascoe lives and writes in Louisiana. She has worked in other states at several historic homes reputed to be haunted. This work combines her interest in history and love of a good ghost story. This is her first book.
L'autore: Jill Pascoe has a lifetime love of a good ghost story and has always been involved with history and architecture. She grew up in Winnipeg, Canada and moved to Montreal where she earned a BA Honors in Archaeology with a minor in History from McGill University. Upon graduation Jill moved to London, England where she achieved a MA in Museum Studies from University College London. Armed with these degrees Jill entered into the world of historic sites, museums, and historic preservation, encountering something unusual wherever she turned... ghosts. After working at several historic houses and sites in Canada, England, New Jersey, and Virginia a pattern emerged of ghost stories being told at all these historic places. Yet there was never any books published on these public sites, and the idea of writing books about haunted historic sites was born.
When Jill and her husband made the move to Louisiana she knew she was finally in the right location to write such a book. After reviewing the literature on ghostly activity in the state, she settled on writing about haunted plantations, after all, every respectable plantation should have at least one ghost. Jill embarked on the research and began to travel around the state to different haunted plantations interviewing staff about their experiences. The result is her first book, Louisiana’s Haunted Plantations.
Jill lives in Baton Rouge, Louisiana with her husband Josh, and their cats. In her spare time she reads, writes, and travels. She is working on her next book, and always enjoys hearing about personal ghostly experiences.
