About Alabama Lore: The Choccolocco

Product Description Join author Wil Elrick as he explores the history behind some of the Cotton State's weird and legendary tales. Mysterious 1989 UFO sightings brought more than 4,000 visitors to the tiny town of Fyffe, population 1,300. Legends of the Alabama White Thang - an elusive, hairy creature with a shrill shriek - persisted in the state for a century. Just outside Huntsville's historic Maple Hill Cemetery lies an eerie playground where the ghosts of departed children are rumored to play in the dead of night. After hundreds of unexplained sightings, the town of Evergreen declared itself the Bigfoot Capital of Alabama. Alabama is a weird and wonderful place with a colorful history steeped in folk tales passed from generation to generation. Review """Beyond the old plantation's creaky gates, a moonlit cemetery beckoned. So begins your typical Southern Gothic novel. Yet Wil Elrick, Alabama native author, researcher, storyteller and ""weirdologist"" loves to discover the history behind those strange stories, legends, and folk tales of his state. Fascinated by the many stories of spirits, disappearances, treasures lost and found, monsters and odd goings-on, Elrick has traveled widely and dug deeper to give a remarkable account of some of the most bizarre stories you're likely to encounter. Alabama seems to be a fountainhead of such wonderment, and he aims to give us the historical basis of the stories behind the tales. In the process, you discover what a great storyteller he is."" Decatur Times Daily " About the Author Wil Elrick hails from Guntersville in the northeastern part of Alabama. He is a writer and "weirdologist" who loves telling stories, whether as a tour guide to historic Huntsville or with friends around a campfire. He can often be found "off the beaten path" researching historical, weird or unusual tales. From time to time, he can even be found participating in a ghost investigation, a Bigfoot hunt or a search for buried treasure. He previously co-authored the book Alabama Scoundrels: Outlaws, Pirates, Bushwhackers and Bandits.
