I am in the process of writing a book about North Carolina and it's history, the legends and paranormal aspects.
This book will cover some of the history of North Carolina from the 1600's up until the 1900's, from the eastern border along the coast, where the infamous Blackbeard made his home, to the mountains of western North Carolina where, after travelling the world, looking for the perfect spot to build his home, Mr. Vanderbilt chose the area of Asheville North Carolina as one of the most beautiful places on earth.
Along with it's vast history, the state is filled with tales of the paranormal variety and my goal is to weed out the ones that are not fully documented and write of those that are. Along with the paranormal aspect, I would like to include a chapter of some of the tales of lost treasures, (where did Edward Teach hide all his treasure?), and of the many downed ships along Cape Fear.
This book will also include photographs of many of the places.
