Lyle Blackburn wrote a book called "Momo: The Strange Case of the Missouri" about this infamous mass Mo-Mo sighting that happened in Louisiana in the early 1970's. Here's the beginning from the synopsis on Amazon:

When a faceless, hair-covered entity emerged from the wooded hills of Louisiana, Missouri on July 11, 1972, no one could have predicted the terror and frenzy that would follow.

It began one of the wildest eras in Louisiana, Missouri and that's saying something. Many would see the hairy beast and those sightings would also sometimes include strange lights in the sky.

By the time the summer of 1972 was over, hundreds of hunters would frequent the backwoods of Pike County, Missouri with the hope that they would be the one to take down this Bigfoot/Sasquatch/Mo-Mo creature. None would be successful.

Lyle Blackburn's book is available on paperback and also digital Kindle devices on Amazon if you'd like to relive what that crazy summer of 1972 was like in Louisiana, Missouri. Many still disagree what was actually going on in the woods there. All can agree that it remains a mystery that will likely never be solved.
