"Hence, with the adventurous yarns there has appeared an array of woods animals frequently terrifying , sometimes vicious, sometimes merely unique, whose appearance, characteristics, habits and habitat have for long been told and re-told with a gradually increasing degree of astonding detail for the puzzlement and temporary terrorization of some camp greenhorn."
- Henry H. Tryon
Like its predecessor, Fearsome Creatures of the Lumberwoods, Henry H. Tryon's Fearsome Critters is an unique perspective from yesterday's woodsman. The author contradicts are ability to tell fact from fiction, in favor of the fantastic world as early woodsman envisioned it to be. It is a no-man's land of terrifying beasts and utterly fantastic creatures as told from one best able to report the “facts.”
