Appalachian Myths, Legends, and Folklore
1/? The Mothman

“The nocturnal butterfly. In ancient cultures, the moth represents a form
of the psyche, or the soul immortally trapped in the hellish death
realms. Mothman. Well, that’s what the Ukrainians called him. Rough
translation of course. There were a hundred sightings in Chernobyl when
the nuclear pump went down. Galveston, nineteen sixty-nine, just before
the hurricane. They saw it. But seeing isn’t always believing.“
