In this book, Andrew Hind investigates elusive beasts from across Canada, coast to coast, relating the folklore themselves, the types of evidence the monster leaves in its wake, and eyewitness accounts: *the towering Sasquatch of the Pacific Coast, and Yellowtop, a sub-species of Bigfoot from northern Ontario’s silverfields and which, if recent eyewitnesses are to be believed, may be migrating south into cottage country *Kempenfelt Kelly, a long-necked saurian forgotten by time that inhabits Lake Simcoe that may be related to the more famous Nessie *It’s said that a shunka warakin, the terror of the prairies, can bite off a dog’s head with a single bite, disembowel a horse with one slash of its teeth, and raze a homestead overnight, leaving over blood and bones in its wake. *The Quallupilluk, the Inuit hag that steals babies and drags them into the freezing waters, a haglike boogeyman of the Arctic *The flittering night time horror of monstrous-sized bats, reported from all over North America and into Canada. Does science support the possibility of such huge chiptera? *the elusive Eastern cougar, whose spine-chilling cries have been heard under the cover of darkness in Ontario, Quebec and the Maritimes despite being officially extinct here *What lurks within the cold dark depths of crescent lake in Newfoundland? The identity of Cressie remains a mystery to this day *The eyes of the Adlet burn with savage fury as this white-haired wolfman stalks the legends and wilds of northern Canada. *the Waheela, a savage terror said to be a cross between wolf and bear that ravages the hinterlands of the North-West Territories. Is the waheela a relic population of the prehistoric Amphicyonid as cryptozoologists believe?
