With these voices and its supernatural acts, the Bell Witch tormented the Bell family. This extraordinary book recounts the only documented case in U.S. history when a spirit actually caused a man's death.
The local schoolteacher, Richard Powell, witnessed the strange events and recorded them for his daughter. His astonishing manuscript fell into the hands of novelist Brent Monahan, who has prepared the book for publication. Members of the Bell family have previously provided information on this fascinating case, but this book recounts the tale with novelistic vigor and verve. It is truly chilling.
For five years, in early 19th-century Tennessee, the Bell family was plagued by a ghost. Alternately charming and spiteful, the Bell Witch was as temperamental as any human. Horror novelist Monahan purports to have discovered a manuscript written by an eyewitness to the hijinks, which spurred him to research and write this true tale of ghostly business.
