The Monster of Hayden's Ridge is the second book by local author Billy Plant. In this offering Plant draws on his previous experience as a land surveyor and his current occupation as a consulting utility forester (work which carries him throughout the surrounding area, including Cannon County) to paint a picture of the Tennessee countryside and examine the challenges of people living in rural areas. Plant and his wife are part of a bluegrass quintet called the Accidental Trio. His previous book, A Guide to Cedar Glades and Common Appalachian Wildflowers was distributed by the University of Tennessee Press.
