Jasper to Selma to Hoover, central Alabama is bursting at the seams with unique
stories and legendary characters. Read about the Goat Man, the famous wandering
traveler who wrestled a bear, narrowly avoided being lynched by the Ku Klux
Klan, was pronounced dead and taken to the morgue and later became an ordained
preacher. Learn the story of the Alabama White Thang, a seven-foot-tall
creature covered in white hair that has appeared all over the region. Be
charmed by Fred, the Rockford town dog that became everyone’s best friend and
had his fifteen minutes of fame on Animal Planet. Author Beverly Crider brings
the most bizarre facets of the Alabama spirit to life with dozens of strange
stories in central Alabama.
