Paranormal Pop Culture: The Legend of the Jersey Devil


The Legend of the Jersey Devil is a retelling of the Pine Barren's most famous monster's origin story.  Set in 18th century New Jersey, the book stays true to the widely recognized Mother Leeds version of events, with Leeds calling out "Oh, let it be a devil!" on the birthing bed of her 13th child--only to have that very thing come true.  Beautiful, atmospheric illustrations accompany this traditional tale of the early Jersey Devil, and it serves as a wonderful introduction to the legend that is sure to entertain young and old readers alike.
