When you have a small town in Oklahoma with a treasure being hunted and a mystery of a Bigfoot in the woods and romance you have a great combination for a successful book and this one proved that. This story started off a bit slow but quickly picked up speed. The characters were well-written, interesting and believable. This was an enjoyable book with a great ending anf gave me quite a few laughs throughout.
very cute book. Didnt know what to expect when I first began reading.. maybe scary urban legend, supernatural reading maybe ??
Instead I found myself laughing at the things these character got themselves into..even with best intentions.

Fun book, fun characters :-)

Legends of Tsalagee – Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat and Think With Your Taste Buds – Desserts

“One day I was out looking, as I did pretty regular back then. It was in November. A rainstorm had come through the night before and left it cold and damp. The woods dripped, and dark thick clouds still filled the day. Anyway, I was climbing up the side of this wooded hill. My feet kept slipping on the thick fall of wet leaves, and I had to grab saplings as I went so’s not to...more

I loved LEGENDS OF TSALAGEE by Phil Truman! This book is engaging from page one to the last page! I found it full of quirky characters who sometimes make you laugh out loud & other times you say, "what on earth were they thinking?!" It's a great mystery novel filled with ups & downs & you never know what to expect from the characters. You'll find everything from treasure hunters to folklore about a Hill man who screams at night in it. At first you don't know if the folklore is true o...more
Legends of Tsalagee ist so etwas wie eine Kriminalroman, jedenfalls nichts für Puristen. Etwas über den Inhalt zu sagen, ist fast unmöglich. Die Legenden von Tsalagee ranken sich um einen versteckten Schatz und den Tsalagee Hill Man, eine Art Bigfoot wahrscheinlich. Am Anfang steht ein Mord.

Es ist ein wilder Ritt durch die Zeiten, vor und zurück, mit einem Abstecher ins 19. Jahrhundert. Die achronologische Erzählweise findet sich aber nur im ersten Viertel und ist zuerst etwas verwirrend. Ich ha...more
Two legends exist in a small Oklahoma town. The first is of a big foot type character called the Hill Man. The second is about a buried treasure worth hundreds of thousands of dollars.
The book tells the story of these legends and how the local residents deal with intruders in their town.

I wasn't sure what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised. It's humorous and flows well. It was very easy to read and kept my attention. If comparing with another author, I think I would compare it to one of F....more
Not far into the book but being an Okie, how can I not like this book?!

It wasn't a can't-put-down book, but was quite an enjoyable read

A bit too much soap opera and not enough monster
A great summer read.

I'm a Heartland American who still believes in God, country, and apple pie (ummm). I've been married to the same woman for 40 years and plan to remain so as long as she and God permit it. I'm a father of two, grandfather of two, a Protestant, a veteran. Some would call me a curmudgeon (and have); I prefer conservative. I left the business world in 2007 to become a full time writer. I have three pu...more
