In the Big Thicket, the unknown makes profound intrusions into what we call "reality." There are wonders in this region of East Texas and in Southwestern Louisiana "ghost lights," phantom Indians, howling ape-like "wild men," and fireballs that streak through the nighttime skies that defy both our common sense notions of space-time and all attempts at scientific explanation. So come along, if you dare, for a trek in this forest primeval. You'll emerge with a heightened sense of wonder and a deeper appreciation of the subtle links between the mysteries of nature and the human mind."

Page 20 - I guess the Big Thicket is as much a product of the imagination and wishful thinking as it is a geographical area. It represents the Great Unknown to the mind cluttered with trade names in a society labeled and categorized. It is a happy hunting ground for the mind, and in man's fancy, the cool green womb to which he can retreat from the hot panic of concrete and glass in the industrialized brick jungles we call cities. It is the individual's final fortress against civilization.
Page 184 - Keel, John A. The Complete Guide to Mysterious Beings. New York: Doubleday, 1994.
