Publisher's Summary

The legendary history of the Nittany Valley is the story of spirit across generations. In these stories lies a cultural heritage common to all who enter into the shadow of Mount Nittany. They are only a small sampling of the total number of Indian and settler legends collected by Henry W. Shoemaker. 

They are chosen for their relation and proximity to the Nittany Valley. Most locations are within less than an hour traveling time, and you can easily visit them. While some are mythical sites, there is enough information in the legends to actually locate where they are situated. But most are actual historical sites with markers. 

Visiting all of them will take you on journeys into places where story and history, imagination and myth, as well as timeless feelings merge. In doing so, you'll enter into the spirit of the Nittany Valley - the spirit that was here long before any of us arrived and will remain long after we pass through.

Various legends of Nittany Valley

I often indulge in history and local folklore and legends. There’s so much to learn with the combination of a tinge of entertainment.

However, I wish the author would have chosen one path for particular topics, unless it evolved into a longer story line.

(The best way I can explain this this is like it was similar to listening to 2 or 3 different version of Little Red Riding Hood. Varied versions.)

Did I learn anything? Don’t quiz me. I enjoyed the stories, but couldn’t recall nor recite them.

It didn’t hold my attention.

I found value with several different narrators. I did look forward to listening to the deliveries of them all.
