James K. Agee

University of California Press

This chapter focuses on the myths and mysterious creatures of the Klamath Mountains. It describes a local legend about a turquoise dragon and an expedition to the Trinity Alps to find a giant dragon. The Klamaths are also the center of the Bigfoot myth, and reported sightings have increased from the last two years of the 1950s and after 2000. The chapter also discusses the murder at Chanchelullia Gulch and the part played by the western hound's tongue (Cynoglossum grande ) in one of the most sensational crime stories of the 1950s in California.
