From the Author
"The Cryptids Trilogy" is a labor of love, meticulously researched and yet full of the mythology and science of Native American culture and the studies surrounding them.
Relying on native legend, historical records and eyewitness accounts, every effort has been made to ensure the accurate depiction of the people and the fossil record explanation for the monsters of their oral traditions.
The extrapolation of both into a three volume set of cryptofiction novels began in 2002 with "Shadow of the Thunderbird", continued in 2003 with "Track of the Bigfoot" and concludes in 2004 with "Wake of the Lake Monster".

About the Author
Dallas Tanner was born in 1956, at the stroke of midnight during the worst storm of the century to that date, in the seacoast township of North Kingston, Rhode Island. The eldest child of a career naval officer, he attended 9 schools in 12 years, as they moved about the country. His interest in local myths, legends and all things paranormal grew out of the ever-changing diversity of his upbringing. His first novel, "Shadow of the Thunderbird", was required reading at a large technical college in South Carolina. He has frequently lectured, appeared on or hosted radio shows, and presented at conferences on his books and interest in cryptozoology. He is often cited in the media as an expert on unknown or unexpected animals. He was instrumental in salvaging Dan Taylor's Nessie chaser mini subs, the Viperfish and the Nessa II, and is currently pursuing an interest in fossil diving. When he isn't exploring remote locations such as the Altamaha River, Mt. St. Helens or Loch Ness, Dallas is content to write novels in his home study under the watchful eye of his longhair Tabby, Samwise. He now lives in Greenville, SC with his wife Carla and their five children, where he is at work on his latest project.
