About this book

From pre-Columbian legends to modern-day eyewitness accounts, this comprehensive guide covers the history, sightings and lore surrounding the most mysterious monsters in America including Bigfoot, the Jersey Devil, and more.

The author defends presents her ideas that Bigfoot, the chupacabra, and thunderbirds aren't just figments of our overactive imaginations, but that, 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 monkeymen in every region.

Author, investigator, and creature expert Linda S. Godfrey brings the same fearless reporting she lent to Real Wolfmen to this essential guide, using historical record, present-day news reports, and eyewitness interviews to examine this hidden menagerie of America's homegrown beasts.
