The James T. Callow Folklore Archive
Every summer on my camping trip to Quetico Park, I am told
the legend of Muskeg Molly. Muskeg Molly and her new husband
were camping there for their honeymoon. Unfortunately, her
husband drowned and Molly is thought to still roam about in
the park. She is approximately six feet ten inches tall, has
blond hair, like her husband, and lives off the land. She
camps in sparsely populated campsites and will assault anyone
coming near her territory, especially fair-skinned people.
Only one case has actually been reported and to this day
he resides in a mental hospital.
