Book in the mail

The book that I ordered on the Jersey Devil finally arrived in the mail a few days ago. I was unable to get this book from Summit, or on interlibrary loan. It exists within the Summit system, but it is checked out until the end of February, and I needed it sooner than then. It was only three dollars from AbeBooks, which seemed reasonable enough.

The book is written by James F. McGloy and Ray Miller, Jr., and it presents a history of the legend of the Jersey Devil, along with transcripts of various sightings of the creature, and an extensive bibliography in the back. I intend to use this book as my main source on the Devil, as it is the most extensively researched book in existence on the exclusive subject of the Jersey Devil. I also plan to seek further information from some of the sources that the book cites, as I expect they will provide me with more to study and critique.
