Sasquatch, Ghosts, Legends & Mystery

The recent visit to Whitehall by the production team of Animal Planet’s “Finding Bigfoot” series  generated a bit of interest.   The native Bartholomew brothers – Paul and Robert – of that town  have written about Sasquatch (Bigfoot) and  Champlain’s “Champ” and other  “mysterious creatures” that haunt the Adirondack region for many years.  We thought that maybe our readers would enjoy learning more about both “Bigfoot” and “Champ” and so much more of this genera that we bring to your attention some books available at the Hancock House.

For your reading we present several titles that we have in our Olde Post Office Book & Gift Shop of this genera that may be of interest to you.
