WHERE THE LEGEND BEGAN
Author & Filmmaker
My name is Dana Holyfield and I am the grand-daughter to Harlan Ford, whose legendary encounter with the Honey Island Swamp Monster has became a famous swamp tale known worldwide. So, in 1997, I wrote a little booklet titled, "Encounters with the Honey Island Swamp Monster," that documented Harlan Ford's story, and several other eye-witnesses who came forth with similar experiences. I later made a documentary film called, "The Legend o the Honey Island Swamp Monster" that led to me making guest appearances over the years on TV shows such Hannity's America on Fox, the Travel Channel's, "Mysteries At The Museum", the Sci-Fi Channel's, "Fact or Faked," "Swamp People," and "Book TV" to name a few, to talk about my Grandfather's encounter and the 8mm film that we found in his belongings after he passed away. Since then, I have revised my book and film with more recent information that I learned about within the last five years. If you want to purchase the revised book, you can do so on this website or online at other booksellers. The revised documentary film is available online.
Of all my husbands collection (40+), this is the 2nd Best of all...I even request to watch it !, November 25, 2009
By G. J. Black (Rocky Mts) Buy this one!!This film is documentary style...but not just a string of 'stories'. Great continuity and a decent filming style.The main resident is REAL...his words are memorable and will stick with you! Science is touched upon.AND, if all that is not enough...the MUSIC is enjoyable...and the lyrics would stand on their own.I show this one to company...that's saying something.

I just watched the DVD. It is fantastic. Thank you for your efforts in putting this film together. I am a member and Louisiana State Director of the American Anthropological Research Foundation. Our goal is to prove beyond any doubt that these wonderful beings exist and then to get them the protection they must have. The last thing we want or need is for someone to kill a being like this. Please spend a few moments visiting our website at Trueseekers.org I am more convinced than ever that these Forest Giants are much more widespread and numerous than anyone thought. These people in your film are not hallucinating. Many of the folks you interviewed have been in the swamps their entire lives. Folks like that are not prone to fantasy and illusion. As a general rule, you can take what they say to the bank.

I watched it last night & again just now. Your film, showing real persons telling their stories in their own words, every minute of your film comes across as the real truth, totally believable & authenticate giving the unvarnished facts. Those who have a very sincere interest in such things, & who really wants to learn something more about the Honey Island Swamp Monster, your film is at the very top of the Cryptozoology must see list.
