Book: New Orleans Vampires
Author: Marita Woywood Crandle
This is my 29th read for the year
This books cover some of the Vampire Legends that originated in the New Orleans area over the last several centuries. From the casket girls to a pair of brothers that terroized the town, Crandle explains how these rumors got started and how tbey have held up in the area over the years.
This was a very short book. It was fairly good - I honestly did not know this about the New Orleans area. I have been there, but it has been almost 20 years, and at the time I had a young child so Vampire tours wouldn't have been on the list. I might need to revisit the area now and take one of these tours. Reading the book got a good sense of the people who claimed this lifestyle and what lead the locals at the time to believe they were actual vampires. Glad I found this one.
