Description

What s hiding in the woods? Here is the definitive account of today s nationwide sightings of upright, canine creatures which resemble traditional werewolves and a thorough exploration of the nature and possible origins of the mysterious beast. She has the ability to send chills up and down your spine. Brad Steiger, author of Real Ghosts, Restless Spirits, and Haunted Places If you thought the likes of The Wolfman, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, and Underworld had no basis in fact, it's time to think again! Nick Redfern, author of There's Something in the Woods Real Wolfmen is a riveting work of amazing scope and depth. You ll be hooked from the first page. --Rosemary Ellen Guiley, author of The Encyclopedia of Vampires and Werewolves The U.S. has been invaded if many dozens of eyewitnesses are to be believed by upright, canine creatures that look like traditional werewolves and act as if they own our woods, fields, and highways. Sightings from coast to coast dating back to the 1930s compel us to ask exactly what these beasts are, and what they want. Researcher, author and newspaper reporter Linda S. Godfrey has been tracking the manwolf since the early 1990. In Real Wolfmen she presents the only large-scale cataloguing and investigation of reports of modern sightings of anomalous, upright canids. First-person accounts from Godfrey s witnesses who have encountered these creatures everywhere from outside their car windows to face-to-face on a late night stroll describe the same human-sized canines: They are able to walk upright and hold food in their paws, interact fearlessly with humans, and suddenly and mysteriously disappear. Godfrey explores the most compelling cases from the modern history of such sightings, along with the latest reports, and undertakes a thorough exploration of the nature and possible origins of the creature.

Review quote

"Her chilling story of deep woods journeys will fascinate you." Whitley Strieber's Dreamland "An amazing and well-researched look at werewolves in the US." Werewolves.com She has the ability to send chills up and down your spine. Brad Steiger, author of Real Ghosts, Restless Spirits, and Haunted Places Real Wolfmen is a riveting work of amazing scope and depth. You ll be hooked from the first page. Rosemary Ellen Guiley, author of The Encyclopedia of Vampires and Werewolves "Godfrey impresses me with the sheer totality of her information. Nothing is left unexplored, if possible." John R. Ellis, Fourth Day Universe If I was to ask you what two words are most relevant to the phenomenon of werewolves and lycanthropes you might well say Full and Moon. Or, Silver and Bullet. Well, you re definitely on the right track, but I say those two words are Linda and Godfrey ! Yep, not only is Linda the most well-known chronicler of all-things wolfman-themed, but she s certainly the most prolific one, too. This new title from Linda is one that I definitely recommend to anyone and everyone who has voraciously devoured Linda s previous studies of the werewolf phenomenon. And if you re a newcomer to the subject, and want to learn what it s really all about, it s just about the most important book you can read on the phenomenon to date. And I don t write words like that lightly. Nick Redfern, Mysterious Universe "By the time you finish Real Wolfmen: True Encounters in Modern America, you just might believe." Jason Carter, The Writers Journey "It is hard to believe that such a creature could exist. However, the witness accounts in Real Wolfmen are often very compelling. Pick up a copy and see for yourself." Alejandro Rojas, Huffington Post "show more
