Monsters and Supernatural Beings of the Old West
Monsters and Supernatural Beings combs the pages of Old West Daily Reader, and more, to find all of the unexplained happenings, sightings of the strange and wonderful, superstition and fear of the unknown that at times manifests in the human mind. We hear about such things from everyone, the Native Americans, the Mexicans and the Anglos. Travelers, explorers, liars and priests are also on the list of eyewitness reporters in some instances. Sometimes/occasionally we get some explanation. Other times, we too, are left to ponder the tale with the eyewitnesses, reporters and storytellers, wondering what it really might have been…

“Pa’dners, I seed a pewtrified forest of pwetrified trees
with their pwetrified limbs chock full of pwetrified birds
a-singing of pewtrified songs.”

near Florissant, CO. c. 1830’s – 40’s
