An entertaining book that lets the reader in on the perculiararities of Oregon. Having recently moved here, it's a nice introduction to local lore. The book covers local legends, ancient mysteries, fabled people and places, beasts, strange properties, roadside oddities, haunted places, cemetaries. Yes, we have our own sitings of Bigfoot and UFOs (even here in Eagle Point). A book you browse through, a coffee table book.
I not only enjoyed the stories in this book, well most of them anyway. :) I also loved that it gave me ideas for day trips, vacations, and weekends away to visit some of these places. It had some fun stuff to visit and I'd love to get photos of. Can't wait to go back through the book and bookmarked the places I want to visit. Love these weird books.
