We thoroughly enjoyed Diane Goode's Scary Stories and Songs from start to finish. It's a book that you absolutely have to read with a Southern Accent to fully respect.
After reading this book we started to use a saying from one of the stories (shown in the picture above) called "Tain't So". It's a story about a man named Old Mr. Dickins who died but didn't know it since they didn't have his grave stone marked yet. He sat on the fence at the grave yard and greeted towns folk as they passed. Each person said that they heard that he had died but Old Man Dickins kept replying "Tain't So!"
This book has proven to us that the Scary stories from the American South are the most entertaining!
