Synopses & Reviews
Eleven Mind-Boggling Tales from the Beaver State
Lewis and Clark had a theory for the stunning submerged forest they encountered in the Columbia
River in 1805—but was the geological Armageddon that struck there centuries ago in fact evidence of
what natives called the Bridge of the Gods?
Does a 22,000-pound meteorite worth millions of dollars really lie hidden in the mountains east of Port
Orford? Or was it a prop in a scam by a nineteenth-century scientist to con the U.S. Congress into
paying his debts?
Many lightkeepers and their families have come and gone in one lonesome lighthouse on the wild
Oregon coast—but does the ghostly gray lady of Heceta House still remain in her beloved home?
From the mysterious disappearance of hijacker D. B. Cooper to persistent rumors of Bigfoot, Mysteries and Legends of Oregon pulls back the curtain on some of the Beaver States most compelling mysteries and debunks some of its most famous myths.
