Pepie: The Lake Monster of the Mississippi River is a newer book by Chad Lewis and Noah Voss. The book came out in june and is about the monster in Lake Pepin, called Pepie. Reports of Pepie go back to pioneer times and continue until today. There is even a $50,000 reward for the creature's capture, but no one has claimed the reward yet.
The first part of the book is about the history of Lake Pepin. Lewis discusses Indian legends about the monster and more recent happenings, like steamboat wrecks and the invention of water skiing.
The next part of the book covers sightings of the monster. The sightings start during pioneer times and continue till today. The authors also discuss their two expeditions to lake Pepin in 2011 and 2013 to search for the monster. The last part in that section is about other sightings of monsters in the Mississippi River.
The last part of the book discusses theories of what Pepie could be. The throes range from a log, snapping turtle, plesiosaur, some other prehistoric reptile, an unknown species, or possibly something connected to UFOs and aliens!
All in all I thought this was a good book and give it 5/5 stars.
