In Mysterious America, a fun and compulsively readable guidebook to America's most popular local legends, he prepares readers for their own adventure -- where to find the unbelievable spectacles on their journey, including:

  • Phantom panthers haunting eastern North America
  • Bay State ghosts and spirits
  • Mad gassers in Illinois
  • Champ, the famous Lake Champlain monster
  • The Minnesota Iceman
  • The Missouri Momo and the infamous Eastern Bigfoot
  • And many more!
