The essential research tool for all things Bell Witch.  The Bell Witch: The Full Account is a treasure chest of information that will save you 20+ years of time, money, and legwork.

Do you want to learn about the people and history behind the legend?  Which parts of the Bell Witch legend are fact, and which are  fiction?  The Bell Witch: The Full Account not only tingles the spine and intrigues the senses, but also serves as a comprehensive analysis and research tool for serious Bell Witch fans.  As its name implies, the book provides a full account of the legend from North Carolina to Tennessee and  Mississippi, and from the early 1800's to the 21st century. The wealth of information contained in this informative work was gathered and researched over a period of 20+ years. Many later Bell Witch books, productions, and web sites are based heavily on information first brought to light in "The Full Account."

The book includes the terrifying story, site pictures, footnotes, discussion notes, charts, an index and table of contents, various appendices, and biographical sketches of those involved.

 From the image of a lifeless body hanging from a tree, to the apparition of a ghastly, pale woman in a field, “Kate” was the all-knowing, all-powerful personification of evil. Kate's mission was to destroy young Elizabeth Bell’s engagement and kill her father, John Bell. Mission accomplished. Generations later, many descendants of those involved still refuse to discuss the legend. Even today, nearly two hundred years later, terrifying phenomena still occur near the old Bell place.

After more than two decades of painstaking research, author Pat Fitzhugh for the first time shares everything - the story of the Bell Witch, the history of the Bell family and Robertson County, common myths about the Bell Witch, biographies of those who figured into the legend, and detailed discussions about the religious and supernatural theories he used in formulating his conclusion about the origin, identity, and purpose of the so-called “Bell Witch.” Backed by detailed footnotes, insightful endnotes, and explanatory charts, Fitzhugh sheds new light to this epic tale of terror on the early-Tennessee frontier.

Pat Fitzhugh brings the Bell Witch of Tennessee to life in the most comprehensive account ever written about what many consider the most terrifying haunting known to humankind.  Pleasant dreams.
