    Legends, Monsters, Myths, Scary Stories, Ghosts and Folklore in Minnesota

    The sad tale of Wenonah (also spelled Winonah, Wynonah or Winona and meaning first-born), who used a knife to take her own life near Fort Snelling when, prompted by an envious woman, a jealous suitor falsely condemned her during the Feast of the Virgins; the story of Winona, who leapt to her death near the town named after her (it was once called Keoxa) because her father would not let her marry the man she loved (are all Winonas unlucky in love?); the spiritual significance of the pipestone quarries in Pipestone National Monument, where the clay is stained reddish by the blood of bison (buffalo) eaten by the Great Spirit, where the first man and woman were created from the clay, where thunderbirds nest and where, beneath granite boulders, the spirits of two Native American shaman women called Tsomecostee and Tsomecostewondee dwell and may still be consulted by those who go there for their pipe clay; tales of the giant lumberjack Paul Bunyan, whose statue in Brainerd is animated (there are also statues of Paul and his blue ox Babe in Bemidji); the unexplained geological mystery of the Devil's Kettle waterfall and pothole; ghostly footsteps heard on the Washington Avenue Bridge in Minneapolis (the poet John Berryman and others have leapt to their deaths from the bridge); Native American stories about the wendigo, a ghoulish, insatiable, man-eating manitou that was sometimes a mutated, cannibalistic human; and the mischievious, monkey-like argopelter that throws sticks at people, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Minnesota.


    Some people say that they have no desire to visit America because they have seen so much of it on TV and in the movies. However, there is no substitute for the real thing. Being familiar with the USA is as important in the modern Grand Tour as familiarity with Europe. Chicago, Philadelphia, Sitka, Washington DC, Skagway, Atlanta, Boston, St Louis, San Diego, Los Angeles, Juneau, Savannah, Fort Lauderdale, New York, Lake Tahoe, Anchorage, Atlantic City, Sacramento, San Francisco, Albuquerque, Salt Lake City, New Orleans, Corpus Christi, Fairbanks, Seattle, Santa Fe, Honolulu, Phoenix, Indianapolis, Houston, Dallas, Minneapolis, Detroit, Miami, Kansas City and Las Vegas are among the most famous cities in the USA. Other American mainland sites that should not be missed if a visitor to America, or an American for that matter, is to be regarded as well travelled, include Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, the Grand Canyon, Mount Rushmore, the wild west town of Tombstone, rodeos, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, Yosemite National Park, the Ozarks, the Disney resorts, Bryce Canyon, Route 66, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, Yellowstone National Park, the Okefenokee Swamp, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, Glacier Bay National Park, Mount Rainier National Park, the Everglades, Niagara Falls, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, the Appalachians, the Adirondacks, the California coastline, the Florida Keys and the Arctic wilderness of Alaska.

    The United States of America are so enormous that even most Americans cannot "know" all of their own country. Even visiting every state would be a major undertaking. It is possible, however, to visit the iconic places known all over the world, especially through Hollywood movies.
