They look like werewolves, but are they? They stand six-feet tall, are covered in fur, and possess both a wolf-like head and the ability to walk upright. Whatever one chooses to call them--werewolf, dogman or manwolf--an astonishing number of witnesses across the U.S.A. have encountered these creatures on roadsides, in the woods, and near their own homes. They swear the unknown canines are as menacing as they are real. And if these creatures aren't werewolves, what could they be? In her third book about this continuing mystery, author and investigator Linda Godfrey takes readers on a state-by-state creature hunt, exploring many new and shocking reports and leaving no bone unturned in her search for the beast's true nature.

Oh Linda, you have given me more nightmares than any writer on earth. She expertly researches, interviews and writes up her findings with her own opinions and is never afraid to say she has no idea what something could be if she doesn't. I love that she never pushes an agenda or makes fun of the witness. She is such an artist too!. She began with the Beast of Bray Road. She was, as I understand it, a beat reporter for a small paper in her hometown (I hope I have that right!), and began covering the sightings of this "werewolf" that people, mostly young people kept encountering. Soon enough, she found that plenty of adults had seen this creature too, a lot of them afraid to come forward for fear of ridicule or losing their jobs and reputation. Her style is down-home and yet sophisticated. I really like that she can state the facts so baldly and yet leave you looking over your shoulder! I quickly got everything she had written and was more and more convinced that there has got to be something out there, but what, is not certain. What is certain, I will never take my dogs out in the middle of the night again without a shiver of fear running down my spine!!
I agree with the review by Barton M. Nunnelly (see below) that Linda Godfrey is "one of my favorite Fortean authors," and that she has done an excellent job with this 2010 book. Linda Godfrey is a good writer, and equally important, a good reporter. She gives the facts of each case--and there are dozens of cases--and remains objective and impartial. My favorite part of the book is the concluding section in which she tries to draw all of these reports together. Is the dogman a flesh-and-blood creature, or is it something spiritual or inter-dimensional? No one knows, and Linda Godfrey doesn't try to force a particular view on the reader. She also has a sense of humor, which make reading her book a fun experience. She has at least two more recent books out, and I certainly plan to get those also.
Don't know what these creatures are, but they are real and apparently live in our northern states.Collected here are the stories of those who have seen these creatures,and I think form an impressive body of reports. Hats off to Ms. Godfrey for collecting then. Be they werewolf, or something else, this book will make interesting reading none the less. I can recommend this book highly as I found it fascinating.
The Michigan Dogman by Linda Godfrey is a frightening and chilling collection of werewolf creature sightings and encounters in Michigan and other states. There is some kind of unexplained or unknown werewolf like animal or monster that is terrorizing and attacking people in the mid west and hunting and eating deer and other animals in the dense forests and farmlands in America. People who live in the areas or territories these creatures live have to be careful going out at night or into the woods without protection like guns or not traveling in the safety and protection of a strong car or truck. On page 76 is the story of a teenage boy and the sad demise of his pet German shepherd dog who ran into the woods and was lost in the woods and had a showdown with a 7ft.-8ft.tall werewolf.
Have been interested in cryptozoic sightings and encounters as much as the sasquatch encounters by so many. the exception is The Dogman are classified more as an Alpha Predators, more animal , wolf like but totally different in body structure and behavior, a more aggressive animal.
Linda s Godfrey has put together many sightings and reports in various parts of the east coast. From others testimony I would not want to run into one of these on some dark moonless night as many have encountered. scary stuff!
If you're into the paranormal (I am in a big way and have been so for decades) this is an enjoyable read. In fact everything I've read by Linda Godfrey is enjoyable. I would say interesting and light. There is more emphasis on the story-telling than on science but that's ok. Fun reading.
I don't really know why — nor do I care why — but I love creepy, spooky stories, and books like this that present them. I'm not much into ghost stories, but UFOs, Bigfoot, Lake Monsters, Wolfmen... love those! I don't necessarily believe these creatures are real, but the stories stimulate my imagination. Some are far out and completely ridiculous, but others work well and send a chill up the spine.

I've read a few of Godfrey's other books, Beast of Bray Road and Hunting the American Werewolf, both fun reads. The author does a nice job presenting the tales for what they are, just spooky tales.
Have most of her books and they are all pretty similar in content and style. If these creatures are real, as the witnesses say where do they come from? Interesting that they are so frightening looking and have not really attacked anyone. I'm a skeptic, but have an open mind.
