What mystery of the bayouland is yet unexplored? What secrets of the swamp whisper in the -wind and await discovery? What are the ghosts along the bayou? A young girl appears at a bridge near Sunset, demanding the attention of passers-by, only to disappear again. Balls of light herald the arrival of galloping horses, invisible to the eye. And water douses an old lady in Grand Prairie, while the spirit of a long-dead Frenchman claims responsibility through a psychic. Acadiana is full of the presence of the spiritual world-from poltergeists to haunts; from Cajun feu follets to apparitions; and from disembodied voices to the sounds of battles fought long ago. The places they haunt vary from plantation homes to Cajun cottages; mobile homes to cane fields; from a rectory to a bridge; from new houses to places of business. And the people who have encountered them range from priests to psychics; carpenters to executives; medical professionals to professors. This book is not an attempt to prove or disprove the existence of ghosts and haunted houses. It is instead an unembellished account of the strange tales told by the people of Acadiana who have encountered Ghosts along the Bayou. Cover graphics by "Cat" Landry
