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 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 pteradactyl of Altamont; the large, black, feline Ozark Howler, the glowing eyes of which may cause the death of those it looks upon; several ghosts haunting South East Missouri State University in Cape Girardeau; 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?); 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; the shadow people, with glowing red eyes, that lurk in the town of Maryville; and the tusked, serpentine Gowrow Dragon of Marvel Cave near Branson, named from its fearsome growls, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Missouri.
