Crab Boy's Ghost, Gullah Folktales from Murrells Inlet's Brookgreen Gardens in the South Carolina Lowcountry Lynn Michelsohn read online review & book description:

Beware the Shrieking Droll!

Meet the restless spirit of a young boy lost forever to a fierce marsh creature. Now he haunts the maze of Murrells Inlet marshes as a "droll," the unhappy ghost of a child who has died an unnatural death.

Then enjoy the antics of friendlier animal inhabitants of nearby Waccamaw swamp: Brother Frog, Brother Rabbit, and Brother Gator, each trying to outwit the other.

This selection of four charming African American Gullah folktales (5,000 words, five illustrations, 56 pages in paperback) comes from Lynn Michelsohn's longer collection, "Tales from Brookgreen," stories of ghosts and lovers, historical characters and mysterious visitors in the historic rice plantations of the South Carolina Lowcountry near Myrtle Beach. The story of Crab Boy also appears in "Gullah Ghosts."
