Recently I read the book, The Wildman of Kentucky, The Mystery of Panther Rock by Philip Spencer. I was impressed because of the book’s personal nature and the respectful tone. The story was very personal in nature because Anderson County, Kentucky is where Philip grew up.
Philip Spencer grew up in in the town of Lawrenceburg, with an insatiable curiosity for everything, he has been seeking answers to the mysteries of life, death and the paranormal since childhood. A 30-year veteran investigator, he has amassed hundreds of case files in his research of strange events that have occurred around the world. Bigfoot however, is the author’s preferred area of research as in Anderson County, Kentucky, there have been many sightings of the enigmatic creature known the world over. His first book, The Wildman of Kentucky, The Mystery of Panther Rock, entails these sightings and much more, taking the reader on a journey into the heart of the “Dark and Bloody Ground” one of the most active paranormal places in the nation also known as “The Frazier Land.”
When Philip was a young child he discovered a very unusual, inexplainable track. This was the catalyst that ignited a life-long passion to know what created it. He is alone in discovering strange tracks in this place. There have also been other kinds of encounters with large hairy creatures, strange lights and ghosts. All of these events were centered around a single area…Panther Rock.
Philip carefully researched the history and stories of this place. He personally talked with many of the people that had strange things happen to them in this particular area. His easy going, caring nature, plus the fact he had grown up in Anderson County, put people more at ease when talking about their experiences. I enjoyed the book and wanted to know more.
The other night I had the opportunity to speak with Philip Spencer, author of “The Wildman of Kentucky, The Mystery of Panther Rock” about all of the bizarre things happening in Anderson County, Kentucky. He was gracious enough to agree to a video interview.
Below is the interview with Philip Spencer.
