    "I have never found Sasquatch to be scary. It's always just a guy in a hairy suit to me. The Boggy Creek Monster is basically just the Arkansas Sasquatch. I don't understand why people become so captivated by these kinds of myths. They should really add some more violence or darkness to the legends. I'm not going to be scared by something that goes for a stroll once in awhile. "

    The most popular and scariest urban legend in the state of Idaho is the one held in Massacre Rocks.

    "My friends and I wanted to scare ourselves so we started looking up haunted places in the world. We came across The 100 Steps Cemetery. The 100 Steps Cemetery is legendary and creepy. We discovered the secrets and freaked ourselves out really good. Most of us stopped before we counted to 100."

    #4The spirits of Hoosac Tunnel

    The spirits of Hoosac Tunnel

    During the 24 years that it took to build this tunnel, hundreds of men died. 13 of these deceased workers were trapped in a explosion in 1867 or 1868, but rather than die because of the explosion, they died many days after because of gas inhalation. As they were left to die with no one trying to save them, it is said that the spirits of these 13 men are still in that tunnel.

    "The beauty of the urban legend is that no one knows if they are real or not. And quite frankly, it doesn't matter, because the story itself causes people to believe it. People allow themselves to think it might be real, and it is somewhat of a psychological type of thrill; not knowing if something is true, and not wanting to find out either."

    "My family loves reading scary stories by the campfire. We go on week long trips and spend a hour or more each night reading from a book. We take turns. This year we read The little girl on Knock Knock Road. What a great time. Really spooky stuff. We loved it."

    "A group of hunters from Wilmington including S. W. Garret, G. V. Garret, and Joe Gore spent that night tracking the creature for three miles around swampland. According to them, the tracks showed claws at least an inch long and indicated an 80 lb. to 90 lb. animal. The beast's circling movement suggested it might have had offspring or a mate nearby, the hunters said"

    "This is a seriously creepy book and well-written. My daughter told me to read it, and I did just to make her happy and have something to talk about with her:) I'm sort of glad I read it - although it is very scary at times. I will be searching for his other books."
