Berkeley County, just like its sister county of Charleston, is steeped in history and rich in legend and lore. With Native American beginnings and later infused with colonial and Gullah cultures, Berkeley has seen many people come to reside. And with each of these diverse cultures came the eerie tales of ghosts, ghouls and goblins. Now, for the first time, Berkeley County ghost stories have been collected in a single volume bound to frighten and chill even the bravest of readers. Join local author and investigator Bruce Orr as he recounts the spine-tingling stories behind these apparitions, including the spirits of early colonists that still linger in the pines, the feared Cymbee water spirits of the Gullah culture and the dreaded Cherokee witch Spear Finger, who craves the livers of unsuspecting victims.
