Guide to haunted houses

November 03, 1991|By Knight-Ridder News Service

"There's a long double row of trees that creates a path to Parlange Plantation. The ghost of a young girl who died there among the oaks on her wedding day often runs between the rows of trees. . . . The spirit of Julie Vincent de Ternant has never been freed from this earth."

The account of how this 18th century Louisiana rich girl became a 20th century pest is among scores of eerie tales in a new ghostly guidebook by those eminent scholars of the supernatural, Joan Bingham and Dolores Riccio.

The Bingham-Riccio tandem, which was responsible for an earlier guidebook, "Haunted Houses USA," is back with "More Haunted Houses" (Pocket Books, paperback, $9).
