Synopses & Reviews
A Dozen Mind-Boggling Tales from the Lone Star State
• Is the “Navidad Wildman”—aka Bigfoot—alive and well in Texas?
• Was the creature in one Texas womans freezer the legendary blood-sucking beast known as the chupacabra?
• Just what are the mysterious Marfa Lights? Manifestations of otherworldly beings? Can they be explained scientifically?
• Is Jefferson the most haunted city in Texas? Or should the title go to San Antonio, which has enough ghosts to warrant at least three advertised ghost hunt tours?
From rumors of Jean Lafittes buried treasures to the hanging of Chipita Rodriguez and the love story of Frenchy McCormick, Mysteries and Legends of Texas makes history fun and pulls back the curtain on some of the states most fascinating and compelling stories.
Part of our growing Mysteries and Legends series, Mysteries and Legends of Texas explores unusual phenomena, strange events, and mysteries in Texass history. Each episode included in the book is a story unto itself, and the tone and style of the book is lively and easy to read for a general audience interested in Texas history.
