Which came first--the monster or the myth? Journalist Linda Godfrey investigates present-day encounters with mysterious creatures of old. The monsters of ancient mythology, folklore, and more contemporary urban legend have long captured the popular imagination. While most people in America today relegate monsters to just that--our imaginations--we continue to be fascinated by the unknown. Linda Godfrey is one of the country's leading authorities on modern-day monsters and has interviewed countless eyewitnesses to strange phenomena. Monsters evolve, taking on both new and familiar forms over time and across cultures. In this well-researched book, Godfrey explores uncanny encounters with werewolves, goatmen, Bigfoot, and more. In more than twenty-five years spent "chasing" monsters, Godfrey has found that it often remains unclear whether the sightings are simply mistaken animals, hoaxes, or coincidence. When all the speculation is said and done, one question remains for fans and researchers: Are the creatures "real," or are they entirely "other-world?" Godfrey suspects that it isn't an either/or question--our reality operates on a scale from dense matter to realms the human eye cannot see. As Godfrey investigates unexplained phenomena, her search for answers will fascinate casual observers and enthusiasts alike.

The Nahanni Valley is one of the select places in the world where nature's unbridled beauty unleashes a supernatural primal breath of spirit. Its unfathomable magnificence acts as a catalyst to birth both general and special revelation. Drawn into this otherworldly realm of canyons and cryptids, a band of intrepid survivors of an apocalyptic plague must find a way to rebirth the world. But first they must face their own demons and then conquer ancient evil entities that have been released by the remnants of technology of the former world. Only by learning to walk by faith in the present tense, and by becoming committed vessels for the Creator, can they hope to be victorious. Being called together by an unseen power, they learn to embrace their diversity by love and determination. During their adventure, they come to realize they "do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers; against spiritual wickedness in high places, and the rulers of the darkness of this age." The horrors they must overcome have never been witnessed by humankind, and these terrors seem to be unconquerable. Their only weapon is their conviction that faith is the victory that overcomes the world. Armed with this awareness, they must save not only the universe but the multiverse. Bravely facing relic populations of prehistoric monsters, the brave troop trudges the road of destiny, called onward by ominous and beastly howls that echo down the Nahanni Valley.

Though modern science and technology have given us comfort and security, for many people, something deeper is also needed; something that takes us closer to our evolutionary roots in nature. This book will allow the reader to experience, from the comfort of central heating and plumbing, some of the world's most beautiful northern wilderness areas. W. J. Becker shares three wonderful trips on Canada’s northern rivers with inspiring, educational, and accessible photos and prose—whether you’re a wilderness enthusiast or an armchair adventurer. The experiences recounted here centre on voyages along three epic northern Canadian Rivers: the South Nahanni, especially memorable because of its legendary canyons and its mysterious history; the Firth for its austere Arctic beauty; and the Tatshenshini for its dramatic glaciers—all are rich in untamed natural beauty. The extensive collection of photographs included gives the reader a taste of the wonder of these incredible wilderness areas. Rafting the Great Northern Rivers includes sidebars and stories about the natural history, the human history, and the geology of each river valley—from Klondike Gold Rush lore, to lessons for identifying bear tracks, to the strange and unusual sights of aufeis, glaciers, and icebergs. These wilderness areas are a precious heritage and need to be preserved and protected. Becker believes that the wilderness regions of the world can provide great inspiration and enjoyment through ecologically sound travel.

"The Arctic trails do indeed have their secret tales, and one of the best is that of The Mad Trapper of Rat River, equal to the legends of Bonnie and Clyde or John Dillinger. Now author Dick North (of course) may have solved the mystery of the Mad Trapper's true identity, thereby enhancing the saga."--Thomas McIntyre, author of Seasons & Days: A Hunting Life "A courageous and unrelenting posse on the trail of a furious and desperate wilderness outlaw . . . Lean and bloody, meticulously researched, The Mad Trapper of Rat River is a dark and haunting story of human endurance, adventure, and will that speeds along like the best fiction."--Bob Butz, author of Beast of Never, Cat of God They called it "The Arctic Circle War." It was a forty-eight-day manhunt across the harshest terrain in the world, the likes of which we will never see again. The quarry, Albert Johnson, was a loner working a string of traps in the far reaches of Canada's Northwest Territories, where winter temperatures average forty degrees below zero. The chase began when two Mounties came to ask Johnson about allegations that he had interfered with a neighbor's trap. No questions were asked. Johnson discharged the first shot through a hole in the wall of his log cabin. When the Mounties returned with reinforcements, Johnson was gone, and The Arctic Circle War had begun. On Johnson's heels were a corps of Mounties and an irregular posse on dogsled. Johnson, on snowshoes, seemed superhuman in his ability to evade capture. The chase stretched for hundreds of miles and, during a blizzard, crossed the Richardson Mountains, the northernmost extension of the Rockies. It culminated in the historic shootout at Eagle River.
