The Revised Edition
by Loren Coleman

  “…an entertaining and open-minded book…A useful reference tool as well as a record of the unexplained” --Library Journal

“Coleman has done more than sit in a library reading room; he has collected information in the field… I recommend it to everyone who is interested in the strange, bizarre, and unusual.”--Fate

“Objective, painstaking, exhaustive.”—London Times
Reviewers everywhere loved Loren Coleman’s 1983 classic work, Mysterious America. Now, for the first time, this highly-praised work has been thoroughly updated! Included are two completely new chapters, “Giant Catfish” and “Minnesota Iceman”; a new list, “The American Lion,” with 141 entries; several extensively rewritten chapters, numerous updates, and an invaluable, never-before-published index. It’s all topped off with a stunning cover painting by internationally-known wildlife artist Alexis Rockman.
