Sinopsis:

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.

About the Author:

ROB RIGGS is a journalist and the former publisher of a series of award-winning community newspapers in Texas. His interest in "ghost lights," "wild man" sightings, and related phenomena began as a child when he heard tales about them in his hometown of Sour Lake in Big Thicket country. Riggs began writing about the subject more than twenty years ago while working as a reporter for the "Kountze News." Since then his studies of the phenomena have been featured in the "Houston Chronicle" and the "Beaumont Enterprise." Riggs has also consulted on ghost lights for Waseda University in Tokyo and the Harvard College Observatory.
