The almost innumerable traditions, magical spells and superstitions of the Ozarks, some of which are recorded in Harold Bell Wright's novel The Shepherd of the Hills and in the John Wayne movie of the same name (though a rather different plot); the spectral little girl, nicknamed Amy, who plays in the Music City Centre in Branson; how the Great Spirit created the Mina Sauk waterfall, in Taum Sauk Mountain State Park, to wash away the blood of the Piankashaw maiden, Mina Sauk, who jumped to her death to follow her Osage lover, who had been thrown over the cliff on the orders of her father, Taum Sauk; the flying, fire-breathing dragon that was seen from a steamboat in the 1850s; the bigfoot seen in Hillsboro (could it have been MoMo?); MoMo, the hairy, sasquatch-like Missouri Monster, that is believed to prey on the dogs of the town of Louisiana; several ghosts haunting South East Missouri State University in Cape Girardeau; the large, black, feline Ozark Howler, the glowing eyes of which may cause the death of those it looks upon; hauntings of the historic Savoy Hotel and Grill in Kansas City, including that of Betsy Ward who, in the nineteenth century, died in her bath in room 505, as well as the spectre of Fred Lightner and, on the fourth floor, a little girl in Victorian dress, not to mention the strange behaviour of the elevator, which sometimes avoids the fourth floor and sometimes refuses to leave it; and the ghost of a young boy in Sauer Castle, Kansas City, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Missouri.
