The Ghost of Mingo Creek -
Published by Forty-Sixth Star Press, this collection of eight spooky short stories is based on legends from throughout the Sooner State. Each tale creeps, crawls, and roars with exciting plots and distinct Oklahoma voices. A must-have for story lovers and educators who know the power of a good scary story to captivate and spark the imagination of young readers. Grounded in Oklahoma myth, the stories are crafted within the state's widely diverse historical, cultural, and geographic landscapes. And-- oh yeah--they're a lot of fun too!
Choctaw author and storyteller Tim Tingle contributed the foreword, in which he states, "From the spoken word to the written page, The Ghost of Mingo Creek delivers, in a book that crackles, slithers, jumps, and always hits the mark."
As an added bonus, each story is accompanied with a photo collage created by editor Larry Johnson, whose photo book of Oklahoma City received great accolades.
"These spooky Oklahoma tales, told by a masterful storyteller, will delight and titillate readers of all ages. A surefire hit!"
