A crackling fire, the smell of s'mores, an eerie howl in the distance. Refresh your childhood memories with some good old-fashioned horror stories that you can share with your kids. Former scout leader William Forgey compiled this collection of tales as a valuable resource for storytelling. With memorable plots and characters, each tale can be told around the campfire rather than read.
Campfire Tales includes seventeen original and classic tales bursting at the seams with ghosts, graveyards, and things that go bump in the night. A handy outline after each story assists in telling tales by firelight, and the book also includes ten tips that can make anyone a great storyteller.
