\"The Legend\" was originally written as an April Fool\'s Day prank for WTCM Radio in Traverse City, Michigan. The song describes encounters with a half-man/half dog creature that roams the woods of lower Michigan. Shortly after it played on the air, the station began receiving calls from listeners saying, \"That\'s no joke, that\'s real!\"
In the years since, songwriter Steve Cook has collected over 100 sighting reports that describe a creature very much like the dogman. Some sightings have included photographs and film. It turns out, this legend has roots going back to the Native American tribes across the country. Subsequent sightings in Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio seem to bear out that the dogman\'s territory is not limited to Michigan.
The Legacy Edition CD/DVD set contains the latest versions of the song, three chilling ghost stories, as well as a music video, and a new documentary entitled \"Encounters - The Evidence,\" which features several of the afore mentioned photos and a striking piece of film.
In keeping with the tradition started in 1987, all profits from the sale of this CD/DVD set are donated to local animal rescue charities. Please visit our website for full details: www.michigan-dogman.com
