Overview
Though a charming, small Mississippi town full of all the southern appeal that Dixie has to offer, there is more to Natchez than its pristine exterior suggests. Much more. Just beneath the unassuming placid gentility of classic southern mansions and estates, ghosts and spirits pervade Natchez. From the old Adams County Jail to the Natchez City Cemetery, spirits from generations past remain in Natchez. Join Alan Brown, experienced Mississippi author and expert on all things haunted, as he surveys the historic haunts of Natcheza town as rich in history as it is in ghostly activity.

Author
Alan Brown was born in Alton, Illinois. After attending Millikin University, Southern Illinois University and the University of Illinois, he taught high school in Springfield, Illinois. In 1986, he began teaching English at the University of West Alabama. After living in the South for a year, Brown became interested in the folklore of the South and began collecting it on his own. "People talk in the Midwest, " Brown said, "but not like they do in the South. I guess this is why southerners are great storytellers." When he is not teaching freshman composition or American literature, Dr. Brown writes books on his favorite topic: ghost stories. Haunted Birmingham is his tenth collection of southern ghost tales. As much as he loves old stories that send shivers up the spine, Brown's first love is his wife, Marilyn, and his two daughters, Andrea and Vanessa.
