New Orleans has been called the most haunted city in America, and with good reason. But there are more ghosts in Louisiana than can be held in one city and the plantations of this state, with their luxurious buildings and centuries old trees, are the ideal resting ground for spectral inhabitants. In some places there are questions about the existence of ghosts. At Louisianas plantations the question is how many?

In this collection of thirteen chilling tales you will explore the ghosts along the River Road at some of Louisianas best known plantations, and also along the back bayous of the state. You will encounter the ghosts of the most haunted house in America, meet ladies in white and black who refuse to leave, learn of spectral children who continue to play, Civil War soldiers trapped where they died, pirates guarding buried treasure and even the ghosts of homes that met a fiery end. These true tales will delight and frighten you during your unique journey through the bayou state.

Never before has a collection of ghost stories focused exclusively on the plantations of Louisiana. Every site featured in this book is open to the public either through tours or as a bed and breakfast. In addition to providing enjoyable stories, Louisianas Haunted Plantations also serves as a unique guidebook to the plantations of the state complete with contact information for all the sites featured.

Jill Pascoe lives and writes in Louisiana. She has worked in other states at several historic homes reputed to be haunted. This work combines her interest in history and love of a good ghost story. This is her first book.

Having traveled to Louisiana about twice a year the past 8 years and visited most of the antebellum homes in this book, it is very interesting to learn of the ghosts who occupy them. Haven't seen one yet, but I am a looking. If you have any interest in the history of these homes, this book is a must. Well written with some photos.
If you are looking for a very scary book, this is not the one. It does tell about ghost that are, and have lived at differant plantations in Louisiana. Most of the ghost are descibed as peaceful sprits that for some reason have decided to stay on at their earthly homes. I also enjoyed the history and the pictures that the author gives of each of these plantations. This is a very well written book, that I would highly recommend to anyone with an interest in ghost.
I like reading ghost stories, but do so in the daytime not too much at night!!!!
Just returned from visiting a plantation on the Mississippi. So interesting to learn the history of the plantations.
Interesting reading. Have bought two books for gifts.
This book was one of the best that I've read so far on Local Louisiana's Haunted Plantations by Jill Pascoe. Enjoyed it as I have been to many of these Plantations covered in this book. Well written & very Interesting and easy to comprehend. Would recommend this to anyone interested in local hauntings in Louisiana. Looking forward to other books that she may write.
A perfect read if you are interested in the paranormal.
A great book to read if you are planning a trip to Louisiana..
Very interesting information about the land and people
I did not know how many haunted plantations that existed in Louisiana. I have not read the book, but thumbed through it after it was delivered yesterday. Excited to begin reading.
