If, like me, you’re a big fan of the work of Linda Godfrey (Hunting the American Werewolf, The Michigan Dogman, The Beast of Bray Road, etc.), you’ll be pleased to know there is a new book coming from Linda. Its title: American Monsters: A History of Monster Lore, Legends, and Sightings in America.
Okay, it’s not out until August, but, what the heck, it’s already online as a pre-order, so check it out!
Here’s the link, and here (below) is the book info from the publisher:
“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.
“Bigfoot, the chupacabra, and thunderbirds aren’t just figments of our 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 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.”
