The Ghost Orchid Ghost and Other Tales from the Swamp

The Ghost Orchid Ghost and Other Tales from the Swamp Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Nothing like some good ghost stories on a cool Florida evening around a campfire (or at home in your favorite reading chair). And nothing like a swamp as a good, scary setting, especially Florida's famous ones--from the Everglades to Mosquito Lagoon. Mysterious things just happen in swamps. Maybe it's because they are often wet, shadowy places of wild beauty where few people go. Where else but a swamp can you find a ghost who is obsessed with the ghost orchid? Throw in a skunk ape or two and you've got the ingredients for many entertaining hours. In writing tales for this book, Doug Alderson drew upon many years of entertaining young people as a summer camp counselor and storyteller, and also from decades as a swamp explorer. He is a former associate editor of Florida Wildlife magazine. To learn more about his writing and photography, log onto his website at www.dougalderson.net.
