Book Description

Heed the Shrieking Droll! –the wandering ghost of a child lost forever to a fierce marsh creature. Read his tragic  story, then . . .

Enjoy the antics of friendlier Lowcountry spirits from nearby Waccamaw Swamp as Brother Frog, Brother Rabbit, and Brother Gator each try to outwit the others.

The four charming Gullah folktales in this brief selection (5,000 words, five illustrations–54 pages in paperback) come from the African American Gullah culture once so alive on the historic rice plantations making up Brookgreen Gardens, a popular Murrells Inlet tourist attraction in the Lowcountry near Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

Bonus Feature: An excerpt from Lynn Michelsohn’s Lowcountry Ghosts, stories of South Carolina ghosts from historic rice plantations around Myrtle Beach, is also included.

Please Note: All four of these folktales are included in Lynn Michelsohn’s longer collection, Tales from Brookgreen, with its accounts of South Carolina ghosts and lovers, historical characters and mysterious visitors on historic Lowcountry rice plantations. The story, “Crab Boy’s Ghost,” also appears in the short collection, Gullah Ghosts.
