Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
We all love a good story. But where do the urban legends, conspiracy theories, and old wives' tales we hear every day really originate? Albert Jack explores the best, strangest, and funniest of the tales so many of us take as gospel, and uncovers some eye-popping true stories that are even more far-fetched than their mythical counterparts. From Robin Hood to JFK's brain, from hamsters under carpets to mysterious travelers, you'll never be short of a scary or bizarre anecdote again--p. 4 of cover.
Subject: Urban folklore.
Genre: Tall tales.
