Did a shy country girl named Isabella Burt shapeshift into a beast and steal off into the night to sink fang and claw into unsuspecting bovines? With Burt more than one hundred years in the grave, the question lingers, along with a litany of unsettling Columbus lore. Author Faith Serafin is here to make sure these legends aren’t altogether forgotten. There might even be profit in recollecting. Consider the lost gold of the Confederacy, once thought to be housed in what became Iron Bank Coffee. Take a step back and peer into the night sky with young Jimmy Carter to determine for yourself what strange light flashes above the tree line, and dare to parse fact from fiction with the legend of the Brickyard Road Witch. The stories here, multifold and confounding, test the limits of even the most skeptical.
