This book is aimed at children aged 12 and above. Have you heard about the monster fish sighted in Watauga and Boone Lakes? What about the so-called Wampas Cat that has been seen not only in remote areas of the state but in cities and towns as well? Another tale tells of a witchy horse that found a little lost girl wandering on Embreeville Mountain. Then, the horse demanded payment from the girl's deadbeat father in a most unusual, and frightening, way. These are but a few of the stories retold in this book of East Tennessee tales. Other stories include the Cherokee legends of creation and fire, a witch who drove people mad, a personal account of a miraculous cure, lost civilisations in the middle of Cherokee National Forest, and a host of death and burial superstitions.
