Elk River Ghosts, Tales & Lore
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Pull up a chair and join author Mack Samples as he recounts tales from along the Elk River. Many of these stories have been passed along for a century around campfires and coffeepots. Some of the stories center around factually based incidents that actually occurred in the Elk River Valley, a few during the author's lifetime. Above all, Samples has painted a realistic portrait of life as it was several generations ago in West Virginia. He credits his late aunt, Mayme Samples Cole, with many of the ghost stories, and remembers the cousins often being afraid to walk home after evenings at Aunt Mayme's. His ninety-three year old mother, Velva Kennedy Samples, has refreshed his memory on many of the stories and filled in some critical facts.
