“Ghosts of the Pineywoods”

by Bob and Doris Bowman

Best of East Texas Publishers
Ghosts Of Piney Woods -book cover
A new book by authors Bob and Doris Bowman explores ghost stories that have rattled around East Texas graveyards, haunted houses and other places for decades.

Many of the stories in “Ghosts of the Pineywoods,” published by Best of East Texas Publishers of Lufkin, came from suggestions by readers of more than ninety newspapers which carry “Bob Bowman’s East Texas,” a weekly column about East Texas history and folklore.

“For years, we have given consideration to writing a book about East Texas ghosts, spirits, spooks and haunts--the apparitions that supposedly cling to old houses, cemeteries, sites of violent and sudden deaths and other places with ghostly reputations,” said Bob Bowman.

“The response from our newspaper readers was overwhelming. In a few weeks, we had enough ghost story suggestions to fill a couple of books,” he said.

“Admittedly, when we began working on this book, we approached the task with a skepticism about ghosts. But, in talking to dozens of people across East Texas, we soon developed the belief that ghosts and spirits are real. There were simply no other plausible reasons for some of the ghostly incidents,” said Bowman.

In “Ghosts of the Pineywoods” are more than forty stories about ghosts and spirits throughout East Texas, including the counties of Angelina, Nacogdoches, Cherokee, Anderson, Harrison, Titus, Sabine, Van Zandt, Wood, Rusk, Smith, Shelby, Trinity, Liberty, Wise, Bowie, Jefferson. Jasper, San Augustine, Walker, Houston, Hardin, Upshur, Hopkins, Panola and Marion. The book is the Bowmans’ 45th. Previous books have focused on Indian massacres, historic murders, famous hangings, forgotten towns, ghost towns, histories of famous people, music venues, East Texas “good ol’ boy” expressions, and home remedies.

Books by the Bowmans have won prizes from state, regional and local historical groups.
