Croles Ridge Wild Giant

Croles Ridge Wild Giant


Wild Giant. A man in a wild state, it is said, has been seen in the swamps near Croles’ Ridge, about the Arkansas and Missouri Line; his track measures 22 inches, his toes are as long as a common man’s fingers; and in height and make, he is double the usual size.
Having been born in Jonesboro Arkansas and having family all over North Arkansas this area is very familiar to me.
