"Hailing from his hometown, She Headless Horse is the first entry into boon’s “Yokai Americana” series, which focuses on little-known to unknown American legends and folklore. Each character is a blend of boon’s imagination, the influence of surrounding ghost stories while growing up in the south, and supernatural occurrences with roots in reality. She Headless Horse is a river spirit located in the southeastern United States. Summoned by the stroke of midnight until the close of the witching hour, she roams the Flint River banks of Albany, Georgia in the search for her head, which she never finds. Some have claimed she granted them good fortune, returning something important to them that had been lost. But the story more often told is of the trampled bodies pulled from the river in the morning light."(Photos by Robert Howell)
