Sign in. Recent updates. Coffin Hollow and Other Ghost Tales. Description Details Mysterious vanishing hitchhikers, travelers beset by headless dogs, and long-dead moonshiners come alive in this collection of ninety-six Appalachian folktales. The trees watch stiffly, the path a tunnel through their motionless squabble of branches, bare as picked bones. Coffins passed this way, for burial in consecrated ground in Grasmere. Scratched a few miles through wooded hills above Rydal Water, this one is brief and easy.
Centuries of superstition cling to what are today just old routes with dark names in remote country. In medieval times the dead were feared, and so were their corpse roads. Pathside stones, some of which remain here, served as rests for coffins, lifted from the path to prevent cursing the ground.

Walk the corpse road at twilight in the scrawn of winter and consider this. It becomes a history-haunted place. This crepuscular feel is not superstition, not ghosts. Just something draped on the air. The path opens to a view. Everything glows pink: the rock-roughened snow on a far summit. Clouds above it.
