Ol' Scratch: Bigfoot, the Boogeyman of the Bottomland
Based on a regional legend and spun with a smattering of historical fodder and local jargon, Ol' Scratch shares fictionalized eyewitness accounts that reveal the survival of the most beloved myth of the twentieth century-Bigfoot.
Granny Godeaux and her young best friend, Spike, thoroughly enjoy the drama and excitement as Nancy, a Native American who is always full of gossip from up and down the river, talks about Ol' Scratch-the booger in the bottom-and how her ancestors lived side-by-side with the creature for hundreds of years. As Nancy relays sighting after sighting, Granny and Spike learn that Bigfoot has not disappeared. Alive and well, Bigfoot, who often lets out panther-like screams across the bay in East Texas in an effort to ward off human trespassers, appears to be cohabitating in surprising proximity to man while fighting for survival.
In this compilation of blood-chilling tales based on true events, it is apparent that this six-foot creature that stands on two legs and lurks in the shadows has no intention of ever leaving his domain.
