Publisher's Summary

Known throughout Tennessee as "Old Kate," the Bell Witch took up residence with John Bell's family in 1818. It was a cruel and noisy spirit, given to knocking and gnawing sounds before finding its own voices. With these voices and supernatural acts, the Bell Witch tormented the Bell family. The extraordinary tale recounts the only documented case in U.S. History when a spirit "actually caused a man's death". The then local schoolteacher, Richard Powell, witnessed these strange events and recorded them in a diary for his daughter. His astonishing manuscript fell into the hands of novelist Brent Monohan, who edited it for this retelling. Richard Powell, state senator for Tennessee, was a schoolteacher when he first encountered the Bell Witch. He died in 1848.

If This is True i'll Eat My Hat!!!!

Honestly, I don't know where to start on this. As a genuine haunting it is totally unbelievable.
If this genuinely occurred, the peers of these people haunted by a witch would shun and snub them, not sleep around their house asking it questions! They would be cast out of the village and accused themselves of witchery, especially by their church who would expel them
The only thing I can say about this book is although it is totally unbelievable and lacks any kind of credit it's a thumping good listen for a story. It entertained me and if it was in the Fiction Section I would rate it very highly!
