Legend City Book Description:

Conceived and built in the early 1960s by local artist and advertising man Louis E. Crandall, Legend City was an ambitious and star-crossed mid-century attempt to bring a world-class theme park to the Phoenix metropolitan area. Despite daunting financial challenges and an unforgiving Arizona sun, the park managed to survive for two full decades, entertaining countless Arizonans and forging an enduring place for itself in the hearts and minds of local residents. A sad tale of broken dreams and economic failure on the surface, the story of Legend City is actually an exhilarating and fascinating chapter in the cultural history of Arizona.

The Legend of Starcrash Book Description:

Through regressive hypnosis a lost legend of the history of mankind has been retrieved from the recesses of time. Did the American Indians descend from the inhabitants of an alien spacecraft that crashed in the Alaska-Canada region thousands of years ago? Starcrash indicates that aliens continued to come to Earth, some intentionally and by accident, throughout our history. In order to adjust to harsh conditions they were forced to interbreed with the local aborigines. This was the only way to insure the survival of their race. Does their blood still flow in the veins of certain American Indian tribes?

LEGEND LAND Vol 2 15 further legends from Poldark Country Book Description:

Description The myths and legends of England’s South West are full of what is called "local colour" and are richer in legend than any other part. The legends in this volume are infused with Celtic poetry and symbolism, inherent in the blood of the people of the West They afford us not only glimpses of ancient times and of old habits of thought and life, but also of the country itself at different times of the year. Stories like THE LOST LAND OF LYONESSE which for part of the Arthurian legends, home to Tristan, which is said to have sunk beneath the waves. However, almost 100 years ago, the Great Western Railway realised the value of these stories to travellers and has saved 12 of these precious remnants of old England and put them into print for us. The stories in this volume are: The Church the Devil Stole The Parson and the Clerk The Weaver of Dean Combe The Demon Who Helped Drake The Samson of Tavistock The Midnight Hunter of the Moor The Lost Land of Lyonesse The Piskie's Funeral The Spectre Coach St. Neot, the Pigmy Saint The Old Man of Cury The Hooting Carn The Padstow May Day Songs (Supplement) Because so many old stories were passed on orally by storytellers, with the advent of the industrial revolution printed books became more common and these stories became “lost” as less attended the once popular storytelling sessions. Then in 1870 the UK Education Act undertook to teach all children how to read and the art of storytelling all but died out altogether. This volume is sure to keep you enchanted for hours, if only not because of the content, but because of their quality, and will have you and your young wards coming back for more time-and-again. ============ KEYWORDS/TAGS: folklore, fairy tales, myths, legends, children’s stories, bedtime, fables, wonder tales, West country, myth, legend, land, , Abbey, ancient, awe-inspiring, beasts, beautiful, black, Bodmin, Brent, Buckfast, Buckfastleigh, Buckland, Carn, cave, centuries, Church, clerk , Cornish, Cornwall, Dartmoor, Dawlish, Dean, demon who helped drake , Devil, Devon, discover, Dodge, Drake, Exeter, gates, glorious, golf, grave, Great, headless, heart, Hooting, hooting carn , hound, journey, King, Knowles, lamentation, Land's End, Lanreath, Lelant, Lizard, Looe, lost land of lyonesse , love, magnificent, mermaid, midnight hunter of the moor , miners, moor, moorland, Mullion, neighbour, Neot, night, old man of cury, Bodmin Moor, Ordulph, padstow may day songs , Parson, Penzance, picturesque, piskie's funeral , pixie, Plymouth, prehistoric, priest, Queen, railway, Richard, rock, saint, samson of tavistock , sand-hills, Scillies, Isles of Scilly, sea, Seven, spectre coach , spectre-pack, spirit, st. neot the pigmy saint , stole , Stones, stupendous, Talland, Tavistock, Tavy, thieves, thunder, Tor, transform, weaver of dean combe , weird, West, wild, Wish, world

The Legend of Pangkor Book Description:

On his twenty-first birthday, Robert Isenberg took a wrong turn and was stranded in the Malaysian rainforest. The day became an epic story of giant lizards, deadly jellyfish, severe dehydration and a visit with a covert military unit.THE LEGEND OF PANGKOR is a menagerie of harrowing adventure stories - a perilous drive through the Icelandic outback, falling in love in the Dominican slums, and bike-messengering in the breakneck streets of Pittsburgh. Here are gritty meditations on strip-clubs, the semiotics of mosquitos, and the drug-addled underbelly of Burlington, Vermont. Suspenseful and invigorating, THE LEGEND OF PANGKOR is a walkabout for the 21st Century.
