Shasta County – TWICE THE SIZE


Find Jawbone of Giant Indian

Redding – While hunting in the vicinity of the Fall River Mills, Lincoln Cries and party discovered the lower jaw of human skeleton, teeth intact, but the jaw bone was twice the size of an ordinary human being. A search failed to reveal other parts of the skeleton. It is believed to be the jaw of a giant Indian.
