From the Author
I'm a story teller who is also a forensic anthropologist. Sharing a good story is one of my favorite things to do, and the stories in this book have been dancing in my head for years. I hope you will enjoy the more than 25 I have selected to share with you from my experience as a forensic anthropologist growing up in the south. A few of my personal favorites include "Behind the Levee," "Voodoo Woman," "Under the Porch," "Lost from the MV Mollylea," and "Fire in the Sky." Let me know yours!

[Manhein has] an evangelical zeal about her life's work, rendered with all the crispness of a keen scientific mind and all the tasty detail of a homespun raconteur.
