Ghosts, Folklore, Legends, Monsters, Myths and Scary Stories in Michigan
The slender, man-eating hidebehind, a "fearsome critter" indeed, which can conceal itself behind any tree but which, unlike pink elephants, can be avoided by drinking alcoholic beverages; tales of giant lumberjack Paul Bunyan and his blue ox Babe (Oscoda is his official home, as the first Paul Bunyan story was published there but Ossineke has statues of Paul and Babe and the claims of other towns are disputed by Manistique, which also has a statue of Paul); the werewolves (loups-garous / loup-garous) that plagued Detroit when it was a French community and which might, one day, be reawakened (could a waheela be mistaken for a werewolf - or vice versa?); the stone monster slain by Hiawatha, evidenced by large rocks on the eastern side of Grand Traverse Bay; the ghost of Samuel Graczyk, a lumberman accidentally killed on the day of his wedding, at Deadman's Hill Scenic Overlook in Mackinaw State Forest; strange occurrences in the Fenton Hotel, Fenton; and the Dogman, encountered since the nineteenth century, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Michigan.
