These Cajun stories from the swampy backcountry of Louisiana are creepy and blood-chilling. J.J. Reneaux knows her craft well and takes her time developing these six stories of ghosts and werewolves. From "Half-Man" to "The Ghost of Jean Lafitte," the medley of yarns and legends runs the gamut from the unfamiliar to the well-known. Reneaux's Cajun dialect is quite understandable, and it's not difficult to grasp the stories after adjusting to Reneaux's rhythm and pace. The sound effects generally add to the flavor of this collection. The original slide guitar music by Mark Maxwell is good and used with flawless effect. The tape is appropriate for kids who like such scary stories, ages 8 and up. L.C. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB 93]
