A century after its publication it is impossible to state for certain whether this book was written as a serious field manual to mysterious creatures rumored to haunt the woodlands of America, as an effort to record and preserve the tall tales told by loggers and lumber jacks, or whether it was simply written with tongue firmly in cheek. The whimsical illustrations by Coert Du Bois perfectly complement Cox's imaginative descriprions. Aside from a single entry fraught with casual racism, this is a fun little book from a more innocent time.
