Ok here's another good one. The NPS website mentions Henry "Bobcat" Carter. I'm looking at book that claims people called him Bobcat, Pole Cat, and Prairie Dog Carter. All because he lived in an underground room by the side of the road somewhere between Marathon and Hot Springs. People said he'd pop out of his room and talk your ear off he was so starved for company. Or he got the name because he's cook and eat these various animals. There's even a drawing of the man himself in this rare book. Someone named Willie Green and Guy Lee knew the man (this was from the early 30's).Any idea which book this came from?
