|My copy of American Monsters!|
Linda Godfrey's new book, American Monsters, is now out! Here's the description from the back cover:
"From pre-Columbian legends to modern-day eyewitnesses accounts, this comprehensive guide covers the history, sightings, and lore surrounding the most mysterious monsters in America - including Bigfoot, the Jersey Devil, and more.
Bigfoot, chupacabras, and thunderbirds aren't just figments of out overactive imaginations; according to thousands of eyewitnesses, they exist, in every corner of the United States. Throughout America's history, shocked onlookers have seen unbelievable creatures of every stripe-from sea serpents to apelike beings, giant bats to wolf men-in every region.
Nationally recognized author and cryptid investigator Linda S. Godfrey brings the same fearless reporting she lent to Real Wolfmen to this essential guide, using historical records, present-day news reports, and eyewitness interviews to examine the hidden menagerie of America's homegrown beasts."
I have not started the book yet, as I am currently reading Thom Powell's The Locals: A Contemporary Investigation of the Bigfoot/Sasquatch Phenomenon but I will probably read it soon. After I do I'll post a review.
