  Georgetown, South Carolina is the Ghost Capital of the United States, and this collection of stories is rich in local color and folklore.  The tales are designed for storytelling with a mix of good and evil spirits.  Sometimes its a family member who returns to help, in others a plat-eye creature is following for a drop of liquor, and in others it could be a hag who wants to ride you in the night.
