History and folklore[edit] The Coast to Coast AM late night radio talk show helped popularize modern beliefs in shadow people.[2] The first time the topic of shadow people was discussed at length on the show was April 12, 2001 when host Art Bell interviewed Native American elder Thunder Strikes, who is also known as Harley "SwiftDeer" Reagan. Explanations[edit] Several physiological and psychological conditions can account for reported experiences of shadowy shapes seeming alive. In popular culture[edit] See also[edit] References[edit]

Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization Book-A-Minute Classics Got another book report to do? English teachers have the inconsiderate habit of assigning mammoth-sized works of literature to read and then actually expecting you to do it. This wouldn't be so bad except that invariably the requisite reading is as boring as fly fishing in an empty lake. Half of those books don't even have discernible plots.

The Jersey Devil The Jersey Devil, the supposed mythical creature of the New Jersey Pinelands, has haunted New Jersey and the surrounding areas for the past 260 years. This entity has been seen by over 2,000 witnesses over this period. It has terrorized towns and caused factories and schools to close down, yet many people believe that the Jersey Devil is a legend, a mythical beast, that originated from the folklore of the New Jersey Pine Barrens. There are many different versions of the birth of the Jersey Devil. Another story placed the birth in Estelville, NJ. Burlington, NJ, also claims to be the birthplace of the Jersey Devil. There are many other versions of the legend. The first thing that ties the legends together is the name "Leeds". The origins provide some validity to the existence of the Jersey Devil, but the sightings are the most substantial pieces of evidence. From the pre 1909 era, few documented records of sightings still exist. It all started early Sunday morning, January 16, 1909.
