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 ghostly boy haunting the Union Covered Bridge in the eponymous State Historic Site, where the boy drowned in the nineteenth century; the flying, fire-breathing dragon that was seen from a steamboat in the 1850s; 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?); strange phenomena at the Kemp Mansion Restaurant and Inn, St Louis; the gold mine in the Ozarks, eighteen miles south west of the town of Galena, which is guarded by the skeletal ghosts of seven Spanish miners; the shadow people, with glowing red eyes, that lurk in the town of Maryville; 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 bigfoot seen in Hillsboro (could it have been MoMo?), are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Missouri.
