Red Haired Giants & Other High Strangeness in Wisconsin, Mary Sutherland
How "strange" is Wisconsin? Strange! VERY Strange!
We have a new guest for you this evening. Mary Sutherland is the author of the book, "Red Haired Giants" and researcher of all things strange and unusual in the Wisconsin area. It turns out that there's a lot more going on in Wisconsin than just the Green Bay Packers!
Wisconsin's got it all – UFOs, Bigfoot, Mothman, Dogman, ghosts, the Djinn (as in, Genies and their flying carpets), and Native American legends and myths that go all the way back to the time of Atlantis, and then some. If you have a passion for high strangeness, perhaps Wisconsin is the place for you!
"Giants" have been relegated to the topics of children's books, but this was not always so. Mary has researched (using an old fashioned public library!) old newspaper reports, some of which date back to the 1840s!
Not all that long ago people knew that very, very large people (giants) and very small people (the Little People) lived among the population in North America and most of the world.
Stories of the giants typically present them as very powerful, aggressive, cannibalistic, and generally very unpleasant, such that the "normal sized" native Americans said, "These guys have to go!" This may well have been so. But then again, perhaps it is more a case of the "victors" determining the "story". – Scott
