Strangest Story Ever Told
Harry D. Colp
This book is about the author's experiences with terrifying devil creatures that he encountered
at Thomas Bay, near Ketchikan, while prospecting.
From the wiki: "Thomas Bay is located in southeast Alaska. It lies northeast of Petersburg, Alaska
and the Baird Glacier drains into the bay. Thomas Bay is also known as "The Bay of Death"
due to a massive landslide in 1750. It also has gained the name of "Devil's Country"
when in 1900 several people claimed to have seen devil creatures in the area."
This story is an Alaska CLASSIC and is very scary!
$19.95 plus $2.10 postage (international shipping will be $9.95).
Condition is new.
Credit cards not accepted. Personal checks/money orders accepted.
