The Cameron Village Sewer Blob, also known as the Poop Monster; the ghost of conductor Joe Baldwin, killed by a train, whose lantern light may still be seen at Maco; Boojum of Eaglenest Mountain (Eagle Nest Mountain), a sasquatch said to guard a treasure of gemstones and presumably named after Lewis Carroll's snark; the spirits of appropriately named Cape Fear, including Confederate General William Whiting in Fort Fisher, south of Wilmington; the face that appears if you gaze into a spring of the Great Balsam Mountains, which may not be your own but the hideous visage of a Cherokee woman, cursed by a manitou because of her flirtatiousness; the duellist and the lady whose spirits haunt the New Hanover County Library in Wilmington; the feline, vampiristic Beast of Bladenboro; the musical water sprite in the pools of the French Broad River, east of Asheville, who dooms those it lures, not indifferently like the lorelei but with the deliberate malevolence of a siren; the well documented but mysterious Brown Mountain lights, believed by some to be connected with UFOs and alien abductions; and the phantom, filmed in 1967, seen in Wilmington's Price-Gause House, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of North Carolina.
Devil's Courthouse (sometimes Court House) near Brevard, where Cherokee legend asserts that Satan sits in judgment; the fierce phantom hound of Valle Crucis; the burning ghost ship seen near Ocracoke Island, a spectral reminder that a ship's crew murdered their passengers for gold and then destroyed the evidence; the headless ghost of Blackbeard the pirate who swims at Teach's Hole, Ocracoke Island; not Dracula but Jutaculla (Judaculla), a slant-eyed giant that dwells in the caves of Devil's Courthouse and/or Tanasee Bald (Tannasee Bald) in the appropriately named Transylvania County (Tanasee Bald extends into Haywood County, where the bigfoot-like Boojum prowls); the mischievious Pink Lady of Grove Park Inn, Asheville, who is a spirit but not a gin cocktail; the pre-Columbian white tribe, descendants of Jonah, who inhabited the land near Looking Glass Rock; the two men and a woman, spectres, who still haunt the Thalian Hall theater in Wilmington; the angelic warriors who battled on winged horses at Chimney Rock, confirming the truth of the War in Heaven; and the Black Eyed Kid of Triangle Town Center in Raleigh, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in North Carolina.
Some people say that they have no desire to visit America because they have seen so much of it on TV and in the movies. However, there is no substitute for the real thing. It is well-known that in Europe you should see London, Paris, Rome, Naples, Florence, Venice and Athens but in the USA you should see Philadelphia, Minneapolis, Kansas City, Sacramento, Corpus Christi, Chicago, Albuquerque, St Louis, Fairbanks, Washington DC, Fort Lauderdale, Los Angeles, New York, Houston, Juneau, Phoenix, Dallas, Miami, New Orleans, Boston, Lake Tahoe, Las Vegas, Skagway, Santa Fe, Indianapolis, Honolulu, Atlanta, Seattle, San Diego, San Francisco, Sitka, Salt Lake City, Savannah, Detroit, Anchorage and Atlantic City. Then perhaps you can say that you are familiar with the United States of America. The Ozarks, the Okefenokee Swamp, Route 66, the wild west town of Tombstone, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, Niagara Falls, the Disney resorts, rodeos, Yellowstone National Park, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, Glacier Bay National Park, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, the Adirondacks, Bryce Canyon, the Grand Canyon, Mount Rushmore, Mount Rainier National Park, the Everglades, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, the California coastline, Yosemite National Park, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, the Appalachians, the Florida Keys and the Arctic wilderness of Alaska are other places, sights or events that can justify your claim to know America.
