Take a walk on the WEIRD side, Carolina-style!
What makes the Carolinas--North and South--so strange, spooky, wild, and wacky? Follow former Charleston resident Roger Manley and find out: Spanish moss reaches out from dark trees on lonely roads, the Great Dismal Swamp shelters unknown beasts, the coastline is marked with hidden inlets where pirates buried treasures and German U-boats prowled. And it's rumored the Devil has Tramping Grounds in both states! We promise, it's an adventure you'll never forget.
Roger Manley, a native of the South with a keen eye for the offbeat, has worked as a photographer, folklorist, curator, filmmaker, writer, and barbecue aficionado. A Weird Series veteran, he is author of Weird Louisiana and Weird Tennessee, as well as Signs and Wonders; The End is Near!; Hoaxes, Humbugs and Spectacles; and Dear Mr. Ripley. Other previous projects include mega-exhibitions for the American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore and the feature-length film MANA-beyond belief.
