I've heard of several mysteries concerning the American Southwest, let alone, Mexico. There are stories of caverns in the Grand Canyon --most of
which is off-limits to average citizens-- that had Egyptian architecture and treasures. There were supposedly the remains of giant skeletons found in
the Grand Canyon. And, many mysterious lights out there in the deep deserts where very few frequent or think about. When locals speak of these
things, they are dismissed by arrogant blindness from "sophisticated" modern Americans.
Louis L'amour was a prolific western writer. He'd spent many decades out west, and apparently did a LOT of research for his books. I am reading
"Haunted Mesa," by Louis L'amour. It is a FANTASTIC READ. And, you will realize that Louis L'amour was also into topics that would fit PERFECTLY
into threads on sites like ATS. Here is a link to his book on Amazon.com:
"Haunted Mesa" takes place in modern-day Southwest America. It involves the sightings of strange lights in the desert, other dimensions. Folks
from "down there." Poisonous women from another realm. Hidden treasure. The Anasazi. And more... (I haven't finished it myself). So far, it
has been filled with rich intrigue BASED ON REAL LEGENDS. "Reptoids" are even mentioned...
...And all of this from a classic, conservative-minded fiction-writer of westerns. I think with "Haunted Mesa," he let loose his thoughts on the
magic and danger of the American Soutwest and represented real-world research and legends concerning it. --It's a MUST READ for anyone curious about
southwestern desert legends and mysteries.
