New book from REAL WOLFMEN author Linda S. Godfrey!
What if I told you the monsters you grew up hearing about around the campfire and reading about in books―from Bigfoot and werewolves to the chupacabra and the Jersey Devil―were more than just figments of our cultural imagination? According to thousands of eyewitnesses around the American continent, these creatures exist not only in our nightmares but in our own backyards.
In her newest supernatural investigation, AMERICAN MONSTERS: A History of Monster Lore, Legends, and Sightings in America (On Sale Sept 2014), author and creature expert Linda S. Godfrey uses ancient legends, historical accounts, and eyewitness reports to explore the vast menagerie of America’s hidden beasts. With the precision research and reporting that characterized her previous books— Weird Wisconsin, Real Wolfmen and others—Godfrey explores the shadowy realm of things that go bump in the night with incredible detail. The book covers a wide range of paranormal pests including:
- Monster by Air: Dragons, Giant bats, The Jersey Devil
- Monsters by Sea: Sea serpents, The Kraken, Gator Man
- Monsters by Land: Werewolves, Sasquatch, Giant reptiles
An indispensable guide for supernatural speculators all over the country, AMERICAN MONSTERS invites readers to question what they think they know and reawakens a sense of wonder about the still-untold mysteries of the universe.
“Godfrey impresses me with the sheer totality of her information. Nothing is left unexplored, if possible.”—John R. Ellis, Fourth Day Universe
