Forgotten Tales of South Carolina

Sherman Carmichael

Illustrations by Kyle McQueen


From the desk of master storyteller Sherman Carmichael comes a collection of over one hundred quirky tales from South Carolina. The origins of these stories are as elusive as the swamp monster that slinks along the bottom of Lake Murray and as hidden as the moonshine bootleggers buried inside the Stumphouse Tunnel between Charleston and the Blue Ridge Mountains. Discover how the witch

Mary Ingelman of Fairfield County caused a man’s cow to fl y into the air, read the prehistoric petroglyphs of Pinnacle Mountain and visit the mermaid entombed inside the Hall of Wonders. Collected from Greenville to Myrtle Beach and down the coast, these stories have survived blizzards,

tornadoes and pterosaurs to make it to the pages of this offbeat and rare collection



Media review copies, high-resolution photographs and interviews available upon request.



Sherman Carmichael, hailing from Johnsonville, South Carolina, is now in law enforcement. He has published newspaper articles on haunted locations for various papers around the state. Carmichael has been interested in ghosts, UFOs, haunted houses and other mysterious things from an early age. He began subscribing to Fate magazine at age sixteen or seventeen. At eighteen, he began investigating haunted locations in South Carolina. Over the years, Carmichael has seen and heard many things that cannot be explained. In 2007, he went to work as a researcher for an independent film production company interested in doing a TV series on South Carolina ghost stories. The production company never finished the series due to an illness suffered by the executive producer. In 2008, Carmichael opened his own production company and in 2010 started developing his own series.
