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.

Review:

"Godfrey frequently draws from myth and folklore and cites cases from history and pop culture, demonstrating extensive knowledge of her subject matter. The book will prove a handy encyclopedia for enthusiastic cryptozoologists of all ages."
--Publishers Weekly

Praise for REAL WOLFMEN

"Her chilling story of deep woods journeys will fascinate you."
--Whitley Strieber's Dreamland

"An amazing and well-researched look at werewolves in the US."
--Werewolves.com

"She has the ability to send chills up and down your spine."
--Brad Steiger, author of Real Ghosts, Restless Spirits, and Haunted Places

"Real Wolfmen
is a riveting work of amazing scope and depth. You'll be hooked from the first page."
--Rosemary Ellen Guiley, author of The Encyclopedia of Vampires and Werewolves

"Godfrey impresses me with the sheer totality of her information. Nothing is left unexplored, if possible."
--John R. Ellis, Fourth Day Universe

"If I was to ask you what two words are most relevant to the phenomenon of werewolves and lycanthropes you might well say "Full" and "Moon." Or, "Silver" and "Bullet." Well, you're definitely on the right track, but I say those two words are "Linda" and "Godfrey"! Yep, not only is Linda the most well-known chronicler of all-things wolfman-themed, but she's certainly the most prolific one, too. This new title from Linda is one that I definitely recommend to anyone and everyone who has voraciously devoured Linda's previous studies of the werewolf phenomenon. And if you're a newcomer to the subject, and want to learn what it's really all about, it's just about the most important book you can read on the phenomenon to date. And I don't write words like that lightly."
--Nick Redfern, Mysterious Universe

"By the time you finish Real Wolfmen: True Encounters in Modern America, you just might believe."
--Jason Carter, The Writers Journey

"It is hard to believe that such a creature could exist. However, the witness accounts in Real Wolfmen are often very compelling. Pick up a copy and see for yourself."
--Alejandro Rojas, Huffington Post
