    Werewolves of New France | Ep. 24

    Werewolves of New France | Ep. 24

    Here are some key sources on the loup-garou. I recommend Ransom and Doherty’s work even though I only discovered their articles after I’d recorded the podcast. Ransom’s work in particular has an outstanding literature review. Doherty’s work (which is in French) is interesting because it discusses how in Louisiana a loup-garou is often a dog or other animal. I’m also including a link here to an English language version of Honore Beaugrande’s la Chasse Galerie: https://beq.ebooksgratuits.com/english/Beaugrand-tales.pdf
