Especially interesting was his sympathetic view of Nelson Rehmeyer, the tragically murdered PA Dutch pow wow medicine man central to the Hex Hollow story. (Rehmeyer is often looked at with disdain by lesser historians.)
I'm a skeptic to cryptozoology, but damn, this was a fun read. I'll never drive through Central PA with the same outlook after reading this book.
The author does not accept the legends as true, but examines each with the eye of a willing skeptic, which is a nice departure from all of the woo woo books out there (not that this is a rain-on-your parade debunking exercise, either).
It was fun to read some of the history behind these locations and stories.
