Ghost Riders (Ballad, Bk 7) (Audio CD-MP3) (Unabridged)
Ghost Riders - Ballad, Bk 7 - Audio CD-MP3 - Unabridged Author:Sharyn McCrumb, Dick Hill (Narrator), Susie Breck (Narrator) In 1861 the Civil War reached the mountainous South -- where the enemy was your neighbor, the victims were your friends, and the wrong army was whichever one you joined. When Malinda Blalock's husband, Keith, joined the army, she dressed as a boy and went with him. They spent the war close to home in the North Carolina mountains, acting as U... more »nion guerilla fighters, raiding the farms of Confederate sympathizers and making as much trouble as they could locally. As hard riding, deadly out-laws, Keith and Malinda avenged Confederate raids on their kin and neighbors. McCrumb also brings to her story the larger-than-life narrative of the historical political figure Zebulon Vance, a self-made man and Confederate governor, who was from the mountains and fought for the interests of Appalachia within the hierarchy of the Confederacy.
Linking the forces of historical unrest with the present-day stories of mountain wisefolk Rattler and Nora Bonesteel, McCrumb weaves two overlapping narratives. It is up to Nora Bonesteel and Rattler to calm the Civil War ghosts who are still wandering the mountains, and prevent a clash between the living and the dead.
Civil War re-enactors trying to relive the past call up things they have no concept about and are in a serious fix when things get out of their control. The main characters, past and present, are depicted each in their own chapter and the story switches back and forth in time from the present day to the Civil War days in the mountains of North Carolina and Tennessee.
An intriquing and entertaining tale told in present time by "Rattler" a Cherokee descendant with the gift of sight while in the Civil War days, the story is told from the point of view of the main characters.
A good read especially if you like ghost stories but, this one is based on real facts. Light romance, no sex and not heavy on the gory details.
