Description: "The Uwharries (pronounced 'You-warr-ees' by the Indians who named them) are the remnants of a 500-million-year-old mountain range that once towered 20,000 feet. Today the Uwharries cover a four-county area 50 miles NE of Charlotte, NC, rising only a little over 1000 feet...the African-Americans, Germans, and Scotch-Irish who populated them left an oral tradition that has grown stronger through the years.

Morgan collected 20 tales that exemplify the best of this tradition. Some are scary, some humorous. Some teach moral values...For many years the Uwharrie ghosts have fascinated, frightened, and entertained those have heard their stories."
