Description
Bert Wall, a fifth-generation Texan, grew up in Houston where he graduated from the University of Houston with a degree in history and political science. But he also spent a lot of time growing up in the Texas Hill Country where he heard the stories and folklore that permeated the area. He started gathering and documenting the stories of supernatural occurrences that took place on or near the Devil's Backbone, a rugged area between the towns of Blanco and Wimberley. In the 1980s Wall started writing about the spooky tales of the area, such as "The Mystic Herd," "The Mystery Riders," and "The Haunted Valley." His stories have been published in the "Canyon Lake Times-Guardian," the "New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung" and the "Houston Chronicle." In 1996 four of his stories were featured on the television series, "Unsolved Mysteries." This volume contains twenty-two tales about ghosts, the supernatural and other legends and lore.
