Tales of vampires, headless horsemen, witches, devil dogs, and banshees can all be traced back to the ancient Celts. Their mythology included a mystic otherworld from which the souls of the dead, malevolent spirits, and fairies could influence the mortal realm and this was said to be the source of such supernatural beings. Many legends grew from these primitive beliefs and crossed the ocean with immigrants to the New World. In the wilderness of an untamed America, old legends found new life and were adapted by settlers to explain the strange land in which they now found themselves. From Tennessee's Roan Mountain Shapeshifters and the Quaker Seeress of Massachusetts to California's Lost World, Bob Curran explores haunting regional tales and how Celtic mythology has become America's own.
