Canada's unofficial legendary beast is best known among First Nation storytellers as a cautionary spirit manifesting the vices of greed and gluttony, hunting down those worthy of joining its ranks. Even if it must possesses its victim to perpetuate horrors in the remotest corners of the countryside, there would be no end to tales of gaunt, gray homonids leaving scarlet trails in the midnight snow. Encounters are few and far between, and no wonder considering their malevolent nature. Should we be protecting the wendigo or should we be protecting ourselves from it? Elsewhere, in A Newly-Published Review, the Journal of Scientific Exploration gives high praise to Karl Shuker's recent book, Alien Zoo.
