Fearsome Creatures of the Lumberwoods

July 24, 2008

A 1910 book about funny critters that may or may not have vexed lumberjacks of yesteryear, now abailable as an online hypertext edition.

  1. Steve, I just saw this and it brings me MUCH JOY to see that my old Wisconsonian pal, the Hodag, was ensconced in legend by this very book. I believe the Hodag statue in Rhinelander, WI was a bit more like a bulldog/dragon hybrid, but I’m sure they eyewitness accounts were varied.

    The little foreword –about how the great, endless lumberwoods have almost vanished– makes me unspeakable sad. 😦
