Day twenty six and the letter "Z" for the A-Z Blog Challenge. If this is your first time here, my A-Z challenge is based on Urban Legends, and follows the life of a small town Nevada reporter, Adele.
If you are stopping by from the challenge (or anywhere else, like the Parajunkee Hop or Facebook)-feel free to join the Bluestocking Club, or follow me on Twitter! I have a brand spanking new Facebook Page, so the more "likes" the better! Thanks everyone for all your comments, I am still trying to catch up, but if you leave your blog url, I *will* get to you! It's been a pleasure, and I can't wait until these stories are published!
Adele's story concludes....
Back int ruins of Goldtown, in the old miner's cemetery, are grave even older than the first gold rush settlers.
Some say that the reason the old Goldtown was moved to its current location off the highway (besides tourism and catching those travellers from Utah and California) is because of a mass uprising of the dead--essentially because of zombies. Even the old timers now, who hear about Goldtown's move from their parents and grandparents, that after the settlers came and started building and drilling into their once sacred lands, they disturbed the resting bodies of the native ancestors, and a curse was enacted on anyone who disturbed the dead.
The curse made curious things happen around the town--milk curdling, babies stillborn. After a while it was obvious the settlers weren't welcome here...and it really became a problems once the Christians moved in and started preaching. That's when things got really weird.
