Description
 

You've probably read enough books on Old West ghost stories to turn blue in the face by now. But what about a tome of potentially true werewolf tales from North America's pioneer period? That's right, North America had werewolves long before the Beast of Bray Road and the Michigan Dogman. Nor are these real monsters anything like ones you've seen in the movies. For instance, did you know that in folklore it wasn't the werewolf's bite that caused the transformation from man into beast? Usually, it was a pact with the devil coupled with an enchanted animal skin. Nor did it take a silver bullet to kill a werewolf and simply uttering the shapeshifter's true name was sometimes enough to render them powerless.

In this book, prepare to learn the secret hidden history of the werewolf, including a Confederate deserter who become a werewolf in Versailles, Indiana, after the Civil War; the fearsome Beast of the Land Between Lakes in Kentucky; the werewolf that turned to stone along the shores of Lake St. Clair; the hellhounds of Nevada's ghostly Helldorado; a Canadian were-coyote killed by a golden bullet; the tragic werewolf woman of Talbot County, Georgia; plus a plague of Skinwalkers in the Southwest that caused the Navajo Witch Purge of 1878!
