Kentucky Legends and Lore (American Legends) (Paperback)

Kentucky Legends and Lore (American Legends) By Alan Brown Cover Image
Special Order


Kentucky is known primarily for horse racing, bourbon and fried chicken, but the Dark and Bloody Ground has a mysterious side as well. Kentuckians talk about their own Hillbilly Beast, believed to have frightened campers at Mammoth Cave National Park. The gnarled and twisted Witches' Tree is a favorite on Louisville ghost tours. Kentucky's UFO incidents--like Thomas Mantell's mysterious plane crash, the Hopkinsville alien attack and the Paintsville train-UFO crash--are as puzzling and frightening now as they were when they happened. Folklore writer Alan Brown chronicles these strange stories and others that are very much a part of the unique culture of Kentucky.
