Synopsis: From the mysterious disappearance of hijacker D.B. Cooper to persistent rumors of bigfoot, this selection of thirteen stories from Oregon's past explores some of the Beaver State's most compelling mysteries and debunks some of its most famous myths. Read about the mysterious disappearances of several people over the years around Mount Emily, relive the gruesome discovery of three murdered trappers near the Deschutes River, and learn why many people believe an eleven-ton meteorite might be hidden in the mountains of southwestern Oregon.

From the Back Cover: Reading line: Thirteen mind-boggling tales from the Beaver State

  • Is there really pirate treasure buried up on Neahkahnie Mountain? According to legend, the Nehalem Indians witnessed the survivors of a stranded galleon bury a large chest somewhere on the mountain. Since then, large chunks of centuries-old stamped beeswax were found along the shore, verifying stories that a Spanish ship had indeed wrecked in the area.

  • Is Mount Emily the Oregon equivalent of the Bermuda Triangle? In the late 1870s, a six-year-old girl vanished from the area without a trace. In January of 1896, a man snowshoed into Elgin to stock up on supplies for his wife and six children, but never made it back to his family. Ten years later, a toddler wandered off from a Blue Mountain campground and was never seen again.

  • What mysterious force causes objects to roll uphill, prevents people from being able to stand up straight, and changes people’s apparent height depending on where they stand? After conducting thousands of scientific experiments in the three-quarter-acre Oregon Vortex, one Scottish engineer burned his records. His explanation? “The world is not ready for this.”

From Lewis and Clark’s stories of an underwater forest in the Columbia River to an eleven-ton meteorite rumored to be hidden in the mountains, Oregon Myths and Legends makes history fun and pulls back the curtain on some of the Beaver State’s most fascinating and compelling stories.

Jim Yuskavitch is a freelance writer and the author of Outlaw Tales of Oregon, Oregon Wildlife Viewing Guide, Fishing Oregon, Quickcasts: Portland, Oregon, and In Wolf Country and co-author of the Insiders’ Guide to Bend and Central Oregon (all by Globe Pequot). He lives in Sisters, Oregon, with his wife, Nikki.
