Read full description of the books:



Wow did this one surprise me. It's a collection of short horror stories, mostly based on African American folktales and set in the deep south. This was published by Scholastic, so I was expecting stories aimed at children. While technically I guess they are, the stories are much darker and mature than you'd think.

The subject matter is very dark, dealing with slavery, lynchings, civil rights violence and more. Sadly, even though it's a book of supernatural tales, the darkest parts of the stories are the true parts. That being said, these stories are very creepy. Just a great read for anyone who loves dark short stories.

I'm not sure if I was influenced because I live in the deep south, or maybe because this was just better than I was expecting, or what. I just really enjoyed this one, and if you like eerie, southern gothic tales, you should check this out.
