Dead Birds Don't Sing
But Witching Rods Talk

By Murray McGill

Spirit boats, wolves, and killer whales wait within these pages. A mysterious, maniacal, bone-chilling scream breaks the silence of a remote inlet. The book's title is accurate. One little bird never sings again, but readers may be shocked to find that witching rods really do talk!

This book features a collection of humorous and serious stories, as well as wild and hard-to-believe stories. From fishing and logging tales, to Sasquatch encounters - all of the stories are true.

Uktenas Symbol

Some old Native (Indian) stories might have been passed over as legends from the past, when perhaps there is more to the stories than meets the eye. Some are spiritual stories that introduce topics from a new perspective, and with a different twist.

The Horned Serpent is venerated in various forms, by the Cherokee, Choctaw, Chickasaw, and the Creek, just to name a few. Some myths say it is invisible, or that it brought rain and made a noise similar to (but not the same as) thunder. This digital illustration of Uktenas by the artist Herb Roe is based on a shell engraving from Spiro, Oklahoma.
