The Monster Of Lake LaMetrie






























"I did not fairly see the terrible creature until I had swung my machete round."






















"He turned and sped through the pass at all speed."






















"I ordered the howitzers to be trained upon the murderous creature."

The above illustrations by Stanley Wood from 1899 were made for a short story written by Wardon Allan Curtis involving a monster imagined near Lake Lametrie, Wyoming. Read the full story here.
