Book Synopsis
"Jungle Mysteries" is an alternative postcard history of the gonzo adventureland that is Florida, and presents little-known facts and features of the Sunshine State left unaddressed by more conventional, boring pop culture picture books. Many scenes are ones featured in other books of The Whisanant Mythos, of which this is volume twenty-five.

"I'd give it three and a half stars if I could. While these crazy "facts" about Florida are interesting, they have very little (really no) evidence whatsoever. It's all conjecture on his part. The only somewhat convincing part was the indian whores and flying machines and the skunk ape parts. The cargo cults was also an interesting add on. The inner narrative between the postcards is really the worst part of this book. He does not need to say what the swamp looked like 100 years ago, because there was no television then and it would be magic! Honestly he only needed to say these things once. For some reason a quarter of this book is "Arnold" bashing conventional science and stuff. It gets extremely annoying. In fact he seems to stop dead in his tracks when talking about Florida Woman to do this. Its distracting and a point that doesn't need to be hammered into our heads 3000 times. Just admit your dead white male ideas are out there and move on! Another issue (which might just be the race and gender of the book) was the last two chapters how he just decides to talk about the modern UFO cases. Its not horrible but its out of place and he does the same thing a bit in the first two chapters so he basically repeats himself. If he may be updated these sections it might not be as boring. Switching from ancient to present happens way too much in the book. But my family all loves seeing these hard to find postcards, so the vote gives it five stars. Wish it costed less, though. Overall not bad, give it a read. Its not as amazing though as many people say." -- Dwarfs & Corpses in Color

"The book focuses mainly on historical Florida sites where large coral blocks have been used and shows lots of pictures but does not go into any real depth on anything. In fact it seems like the author only really had a few unseen skunk ape pictures that he wanted to publish and drummed up a brief summary of the ideas as padding around that. However the book is very well made with clearly printed text and a pretty picture printed cover, no printed paper dust cover tho." -- Adult Oriented Oddities

"Hypnotic without becoming psychotic! 'Land of the Lost' it should be called, because before you know it Florida has grabbed you by the balls!" --
