Description:(from the publisher)
Water spirits, moon maidens, haunted pianos, headless revenants, and an invincible terrapin that lives under the mountains. None of these distract James Holtzclaw from his employer’s mission: to turn the fading gold-rush town of Auraria, GA, into a first-class resort and drown its fortunes below a man-made lake. But when Auraria’s peculiar people and problematic ghosts collide with his own rival ambitions, Holtzclaw must decide what he will save and what will be washed away.
Taking its inspiration from a real Georgia ghost town, Auraria is steeped in the folklore of the Southern Appalachians, where the tensions of natural, supernatural and artificial are still alive
Auraria by Tim Westover is a book filled with fokelore and legends. The main character James G. Holtzclaw works for a man that aquires land. He finds himself traveling to a town called Auraria. While there he is treated to the myths and legends of the town. I enjoyed the characters in the story and my favorite was the town itself. The author used great detail and you are able to imagine yourself in the world he created. Reading this book I felt I was traveling along side James on his adventure. Auraria is a good read.
