Hear Julia's song while you are reading about her that on page below that Clayton Glover and Glenn Smith wrote after they read about her and saw pictures of her on page above

Julia Pastrana, a Mexican Digger Indian was born to a family that lived in a cave who ate roots and tree bark to survive, she was 4 and a half feet tall, her face and body covered with straight black hair, her ears and her nose were extraordinarily large, her teeth were all irregular and abnormal and according to one account she had a double row in each jaw, but a examination of her mummy says that she did not.

She was discovered by a man named Theodor Lent who began exhibiting her worldwide, her act proved she was good dancer and singer, she eventually married Lent and even on her deathbed she truly believed that he loved her, she died from childbirth in 1860, her hairy, deformed baby boy lived for three days, she died shortly thereafter.

After their death Lent had her and her baby mummified and then he resumed the tour exhibiting both ... Lent eventually died of a brain disease, one of his final acts was to run around on a bridge and throwing money into the river.

For many years, Julia's mummy was believed to be lost But both of The mummies ended up in Norway in 1921, on display until 1970s when Norway authorities threatened to confiscate both of them, mummies were stolen in 1979, recovered by police from a dump and stored, in 1990 it was discovered at the Oslo Forensic Institute a little the worse for wear, Julia was by all accounts a bright, sweet and a interesting woman, she loved to read and exhibiting herself saved her from grinding poverty of birth home, allowed her to see the world!

Julia's song


She cries


Lone wolf


Cookie crumbs


Love is...?


Damned old rat hole


Devil done his dirty work


Humpty Dumpty


Shakin Guitar man


Miss your smile


Sharing love


Mighty good book


Whenever I fall


Hypocrite


Rivers edge


He hears you cry


Devil's train


I believe that


The Lord can see


Someday you will
