Called the First Lady of American Folklore, Nancy Roberts has authored dozens of books on hauntings and legends, including Civil War Ghost Stories and Legends and The Haunted South. A professional storyteller and actress, Roberts has been featured on radio and television and is a frequent guest speaker at seminars, schools, and libraries. She lives in Charlotte, North Carolina.
"Nancy Roberts's reputation as one of the preeminent authors of American ghost stories is a well-deserved recognition of her estimable ability to weave compelling supernatural tales with a strong sense of history and place. This is certainly true in the newly expanded edition of her Ghosts of the Wild West, seventeen tales of vaporous ghost lights, haunted mesas, phantom gunmen, and reanimated skeletons. It's a book sure to please collectors of Western lore, fans of well-told, old-fashioned ghost tales and, it would seem to me, school librarians looking for just the right book to introduce middle school and high school readers to American folklore."—Michael Norman, coauthor of Historic Haunted America and Haunted Heritage
