A rich mixture of inexplicable history and eerie happenstance runs through the portion of the Ozark Plateau that Carthage has carved out for itself. Woodland cabins greet visitors with phantom hosts or vanish into the night entirely. Rumors of lost Spanish treasure caravans haunt the hills with the same persistence as the Confederate guerrillas who were run to ground there. Nor is the town itself immune from the encroachment of the supernatural; the drama of tragic death continues to find a stage in an opera house, a hospital and an elegant residence. Lisa Livingston-Martin tracks down the fiercest and most fascinating specters from Carthage's past.
