My first ghost story recording would hardly be complete without this story. I have loved it since I heard it in my first storytelling class. I fell in love with it all over again after I met Will Clay, the man who illustrated Jan Wahl’s book. I hear it a great deal. Young and old tell this tale with relish about a man who’s foolish enough to try living out on the swamp alone. This is a fun story for kids as well as adults.
This story is featured on Donna’s story collection, ‘A Little Shiver’. It is a collection of not so scary stories for those times when you want to be scared, but just a little bit. It is family friendly and great for kids in middle school and older.
