People often ask me where I am from. Well, I have been in Billings since I was in my mid-20s.

But I was born in a town called Alton in the state of Illinois. I grew up in a small town called Bethalto about 5 minutes from Alton. One of the legends I remember growing up with was the Great Piasa Bird.

He is painted on the bluffs right off the great river road in Alton.

I will tell you what I know about The Bird That Devours Men and how the legend was born in my video.

It has been painted on the bluffs all my life and for many, many years before that!!
