Editorial Reviews

These Cajun stories from the swampy backcountry of Louisiana are creepy and blood-chilling. J.J. Reneaux knows her craft well and takes her time developing these six stories of ghosts and werewolves. From "Half-Man" to "The Ghost of Jean Lafitte," the medley of yarns and legends runs the gamut from the unfamiliar to the well-known. Reneaux's Cajun dialect is quite understandable, and it's not difficult to grasp the stories after adjusting to Reneaux's rhythm and pace. The sound effects generally add to the flavor of this collection. The original slide guitar music by Mark Maxwell is good and used with flawless effect. Great for kids who like such scary stories, ages 8 and up.

Publisher's Summary

In the land of moss, magnolias, and bayous, ghost stories suffuse the landscape like mist on a moonlit swamp. Swamp ghosts, hot-tempered villains, and tricksters once lived there, and live on today in such blood-chilling stories as the six in this collection. For Ages 8 and Up

Brilliant and Scary

The description says ages 8 to adult, but I'm glad I waited until my daughter was 11 before listening to these stories. Some are quite scary and leave lasting impressions. Wonderful stuff, though! She's a real treasure!

Frightfully Fun Southern Storytelling

I chose this book Because I had enjoyed a couple of Ms. Reneaux's stories on The Moonlight Road webpage. I was not disappointed. These stories have the flavor of old southern storytelling, and are the sorts of fun, spooky tales for an entire family to enjoy on an October night around a bonfire. If you still have fond memories of Halloween nights and campfire tales, and if you love the unique traditions and folktales of Louisiana, you will certainly enjoy this audiobook.
