She's a local to the region, giving her a unique opportunity to write about the events as close to the time of the flap as can be hoped for. Her accounts are contemporaneous, making readers as in-the-moment reporting as possible. Because of this, The Beast of Bray Road is THE book on the sightings. The book is also very accessible, not a boring or academic play-by-play.
The author relates the Bray Road sightings to other, similar sightings. These include the infamous Michigan Dogman and others. This puts the sightings into a regional context, informing readers that while the Bray Road sightings are unique locally, other similar creatures have been reported in the U.S. Are these other creatures the same as the Beast of Bray Road? Perhaps. Regardless, this means that independent sightings from people that don't know each other and have no knowledge of other incidents are seeing something similar. Ms. Godfrey ties this together well, chronicling the sightings and giving us the "facts". Even if you don't believe in the Beast of Bray Road, it makes for an interesting read.
Cryptozoology and paranormal fans will find this to be a bizarre and compelling narrative. It's a must for fans of folklore, weirdness, werewolves and other cryptids. Not unlike the Michigan Dogman, the Beast of Bray Road holds a special place in Wisconsin history. And it should also hold a special place on your bookshelf.
