Summary
  • "Lore, legends, characters & myths that grew out of the Old West"--Jacket subtitle
  • Did the United States government really steal Pancho Villa's head two and a half years after his burial? Where does the North American "Bigfoot" roam? In this book, a sequel to the authors' The Mysterious West, Brad Williams and Choral Pepper examine many little-known stories and legends of the American West. Here the reader will find a variety of fantastically conceived hoaxes along with new factual evidence to support the validity of stories formerly assumed to be tales. The story behind California's lost Cherokee diamond mine, the lost secrets of Charles Hatfield--super rainmaker, who twice nearly washed San Diego off the map--the lost site of the Calaveras skull, and the mystery of the Port Oxford meteorite are but a few of the phenomena discussed here.--From publisher description
