Chilling Accounts Of A Breed Of Mysterious, Man-like Creature
The Southern Sasquatch
Countless reports from credible individuals suggest that something shocking may be stalking the woods of the southern United States-something massive, bipedal, and covered in hair. Tales of these Southern Sasquatch creatures-such as the one made famous by the 1972 horror movie The Legend of Boggy Creek-date back to the very origins of Deep South history and are reported even today.
While Boggy Creek may be the most famous case, the infamous waterway is only the tip of a much broader mystery, one that spills into the surrounding states and beyond. From Arkansas and Oklahoma down to Texas, over to Florida and all the southern states in between, chilling accounts and compelling evidence indicate that a breed of these mysterious, man-like creatures has been successfully hiding in the shadowy foothills, piney woods, and murky swamplands of these areas.
Join acclaimed author and cryptid researcher Lyle Blackburn as he traverses woods and waterways, delves into dusty archives, and interviews a host of credible eyewitnesses in search of one of the South’s most enduring mysteries… the Southern Sasquatch
