Legends Of The National Park Guide Book: (Best Seller!)
NEW—Creepy Mysteries, Monsters and Myths of the National Parks!
The artists of Anderson Design Group have spent years documenting the wilderness and wonder of America’s National Parks. During our adventures in the parks, we’ve run across scary, bizarre, and fantastic legends of mythical creatures reported to have inhabited many of the parks and surrounding areas. We began to collect creepy accounts of strange creatures—like Bigfoot, the Jackalope, the Wednigo, or visitors from outer space. We collected tall tales of unexplainable events, ancient myths, and stories passed down by Indigenous Peoples, colonial settlers, and park visitors over the last two centuries. Many legends are based on Native American folklore, and we have been careful to indicate which tribes were associated with each story, being respectful of sacred traditions and Indigenous beliefs.
We have interpreted the creatures featured in the legends of the National Parks, rendering images of fantastic beings, using historical reference and some artistic license. We have created a repository of cryptid information, pinpointing the various National Parks where each legend originated. Maps, captions, facts, and info-graphics bring these mysterious creatures to life in this handy, pocket-sized guide book. The legends are retold and amplified with info about the powers and characteristics of each creature, along with plausible natural explanations for how each mystery may have come to be. This book is ideal for anyone who is a fan of the National Parks, mythical creatures, and creepy, unexplained phenomena. In addition to featuring 32 Legends of the National Parks, there is a bonus section highlighting 19 other mythical creatures from around the world.
Printed on quality paper with a sturdy metal wiro-binding, the dimensions of this handy book are 5" wide x 7" tall.
