For nearly two decades, Troy Taylor has been delving into the ghosts and haunted places in the state of Illinois but in this book, the author takes a journey down a darker road and takes readers on a search for the strange, terrifying and bizarre in this mysterious region. For centuries, Illinois has played host to the unexplained from the ancient mysteries of Cahokia, the stone forts of southern Illinois, anomalous petroglyphs and many other oddities from our distant past. Journey back in time to this lost era and then go on a hunt for the state's chilling creatures, including Bigfoot, Thunderbirds, phantom panthers, water creatures and some of the strangest beasts to ever walk on four feet --- or two! Finally, take the plunge into the depths of the unexplained as we search for answers to the state's greatest enigmas like the Macomb Poltergeist, Williamsburg Hill, Illinois' spook lights, Watseka Wonder, Illinois' sky mysteries, flying saucer invasions, Illinois vampires, the Mad Gasser of Mattoon and much more! Don't miss out on this amazing book --- including accounts, stories, eyewitness reports and in-depth research that has never appeared in print before!
