The spectral little girl, nicknamed Amy, who plays in the Music City Centre in Branson; the phantom of a weeping Native American woman who, on moonlit nights, repeats her death jump from a cliff in Creve Coeur Lake Memorial Park (Creve Coeur Park), in St Louis County, where she tried to join her late husband in the spirit world; the Spook Light of the Devil's Promenade, near Joplin (is it a lantern held by a ghostly miner or headless Native American, or is it the spectral light of Native American lovers who died in a lover's pact?); several ghosts haunting South East Missouri State University in Cape Girardeau; 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 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 shadow people, with glowing red eyes, that lurk in the town of Maryville; and strange phenomena at the Kemp Mansion Restaurant and Inn, St Louis, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Missouri.
