Abominable Snowmen: Legend Come to Life: The Story Of Sub-Humans On Five Continents From The Early Ice Age Until Today [Paperback]
May 15, 2006
By Ivan T. Sanderson

Do Abominable Snowmen exist? Prepare yourself for a shock. In the opinion of one of the world's leading naturalists, not one, but possibly four separate kinds of yeti still walk the earth! Factual reports of wild, strange, hairy men have emanated from every continent except Australia and the Antarctic! Do they really live on the fringes of the towering Himalayas and the edge of mythhaunted Tibet’ They do, but we are far more likely to catch one in the impenetrable Klamath Forests of Northern California. Now, at last, Ivan Sanderson, who has been accumulating material for 30 years on this subject, explains in clear language just why no Snowman has ever been captured and kept for a zoo or a museum—though one was caught during the last century, in Canada.

About the Author
Ivan T. Sanderson was a worldfamous zoologist and writer. He also published exhaustively in scientific journals under the auspices of the British Museum, the Chicago Museum of Natural History and other institutions. He held degrees with honors from Cambridge University, in botany, zoology, and geology, and also studied anatomy and physical anthropology.

America's Bigfoot : Fact, Not Fiction [Mass Market Paperback]
October 1, 1997
By Dmitri Bayanov Edited by Igor Bourtsev

Customer Review
Russian hominologists Dmitri Bayanov and Igor Bourtsev are among the two most strident believers in the reality of relict hominoids. Their research spans over 30 years, originating in the efforts of scientific pioneer Boris Porshnev to collect and analyze data from within the former Soviet Union concerning man-like creatures. Having obtained a copy of the Patterson-Gimlin film in December 1971 from Rene Dahinden, Bayanov and Bourtsev assumed responsibility for the analysis of the famous film. This book is both a history of their involvement with the film and a very witty commentary upon the nature of the scientific establishment, both Western and Russian. The book contains an abbreviated version of their original report presented in 1978 at the University of British Columbia symposium "Sasquatch and Similar Phenomena." For a rare glimpse inside the politics and personal prejudices that all too frequently influence supposedly "impartial" scientific discourse, this book is highly recommended. Also worth reading is Bayanov's 1996 release "In the Footsteps of the Russian Snowman" which chronicles the continuing efforts of Bayanov, Bourtsev, and Marie-Jeanne Koffmann to make sense of anecdotal and physical evidence pertaining to relict hominoids in the USSR. Both volumes are highly recommended for their serious appraisal of the existing evidence.

Anatomy of a Beast: Obsession and Myth on the Trail of Bigfoot [Hardcover]
June 2, 2009
By Michael McLeod

If you're interested in a skeptical tome on the subject of Bigfoot, you'd do a lot better with either Daegling's "Bigfoot Exposed" (horrible title...very good book) or Buh's "Bigfoot - the Life and Times of a Legend (good title...good book). McLeod is correct in pointing out a lot of weak pieces of evidence. But to leap from that to making absolute statements such as "But the Bigfoot phenomenon has never been about the truth. It's about storytelling" or (pertaining to the Patterson film) "Afterall, someone was in the suit, and Patterson's clock was ticking" has him coming off as presumptive and arrogant as someone boldly claiming there IS strong evidence for the existence of Bigfoot. One has to wonder if McLeod were around in Africa in the years prior to the discovery of the mountain gorilla, with him hearing anecdotal stories of man-like beings, would he have scoffed at such stories as wishful thinking rubbish? Apparently, he's one of these guys who mistakenly thinks that science is solely involved with defending what has already been verified and pooh- poohing that which hasn't, even though, in the case of the Sasquatch phenomenon, you have literally thousands of people who have claimed to see one. Personally, I believe there IS tons of b.s. and misinterpretation involved in the phenomenon, but to categorically rule out any plausible notion that such beings could exist comes off as someone who needs to review the principles of the scientific method and question his own apparently all-compassing cynical views of human beings ability to relay what they've experienced accurately.

Granted, in this day and age of computer-generated imagery, only a body or a part of one will suffice for verification. But to claim that any further searching is a pure waste of time seems to ignore the fact that prior to proving that both the mountain gorilla and orangutan existed, for hundreds of years, anecdotal tales abounded about their existence. Perhaps this too is the case with Bigfoot.

BIGFOOT! The True Story of Apes in America [Paperback]
April 8, 2003
By Loren Coleman

In this fascinating and comprehensive look at the fact, fiction, and fable of the North American "Sasquatch," award-winning author Loren Coleman takes readers on a journey into America's biggest mystery -- could an unrecognized "ape" be living in our midst? Drawing on over forty years of investigations, interviews, and fieldwork on these incredible beasts, Coleman explores the modern debates about these powerful, ape-like creatures, why they have remained a mystery for so long, and what we can learn about ourselves from these animals, our nearest cousins!

From reports of Bigfoot's existence found in ancient Native American traditions, to the controversial Patterson-Gimlin film of a Bigfoot in the wild, to today's Internet sites that record the sightings almost as soon as they occur, Coleman uncovers the past, explains the present, and considers the future of one of the greatest unsolved mysteries in the natural world.

Bigfoot; The Yeti and Sasquatch in Myth and Reality [Hardcover]
March 1973
By John Russell Napier

Customer Review
Dr. John Napier was Curator of Primates at the Smithsonian Institution. At the time this book was written in the early 1970's, it was unusual for a Scientist to publicly show interest in this subject. Dr Napier was a leading Primatologist who took an interest in this subject and began investigating further. He examines the evidence for the existence of the North American "Bigfoot" as well as the Himalyan "Yeti". Also discussed is the 1967 Roger Patterson film. Dr Napier analyzes the footprint evidence also. Dr Napier also discusses the cultural aspects of man's world wide belief in man like monsters. In his final chapter Dr. Napier concludes that he feels there is something to the Sasquatch reports and further states that if even one of the tracks are legitmate than the Sasquatch does exist and as Scientists they have some explaining to do. This book is out of print, however it was a mass produced paperback and is relatively easy to find. Anyone who is interested in this subject should read this book and have a copy in their library.

Bigfoot and Other Legendary Creatures [Paperback]
September 15, 1997
By Paul Robert Walker
Illustrated by William Noonan

From Publishers Weekly
Monsters and fantastical creatures have long been the stuff of youngsters' most vivid fantasies. Here Walker (The Method) plays to those imaginings in an unusual blend of fiction and nonfiction starring seven legendary creatures from Bigfoot to the Kongamato--a pterodactyl-like creature said to live in southern Africa. Each appears in a hair-raising fictional encounter between a child and that creature, followed by a brief summary of the evidence for its actual existence. An introduction cites examples of large animals until recently unknown to science, such as the okapi and mountain gorilla. Noonan contributes forceful watercolor "portraits" of each creature and pleasing sepia-toned spot art. Attractively designed--in a manner somewhat similar to Virginia Hamilton's substantial anthologies--this uncommon hybrid should find a ready audience waiting to be scared. Ages 8-up.
Copyright 1992 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

From School Library Journal
Grade 4-6-- A collection of seven original tales interspersed with facts about legendary creatures--Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster, the Yeti, the Almas, the Lusca, the Mokele-Mbembe, and the Kongamato. Each chapter begins with a story about a teenager encountering the creature, followed by a page of information printed in italics about sightings and speculations. The writing is a little melodramatic, and there is no indication that the stories are fictional except on the flap copy. There is a full-page oil painting in each chapter, as well as smaller sepia-toned illustrations. They are of average quality, and add no detail or excitement to the text. Layout is good--there is a lot of text on each page but in large size type, and with good spacing and enough white space so as not to appear daunting. --JoAnn Rees, Sunnyvale Pub . Lib . , CA

Bigfoot Casebook updated: Sightings And Encounters from 1818 to 2004 [Paperback]
November 1, 2005
By Janet Bord and Colin Bord
Foreword by Loren Coleman

The Bigfoot Casebook (both the original and the updated version)is a great resource for anyone who studies the Bigfoot phenomena. Whether a field researcher, or of the more Fortean variety, the individual interested in Bigfoot needs this book. In fact, anyone who is interested in Bigfoot who is serious about research needs this book.

This book is also fun for the person who is curious about Bigfoot, even if not a researcher.

Where ever you fall on the scale of interest, the book is an excellent resource.

While the book is a useful research tool, it isn't pedantic or difficult to read. The person who's curious about Bigfoot and enjoys reading about Bigfoot or Sasquatch will find this book a nice and easy to read collection of Bigfoot encounters.

Casebook doesn't delve deeply into any one particular Bigfoot case; that's not the purpose of the book. It's an excellent guide to specific dates, locations, etc. of Bigfoot activity/sightings.

One thing I personally appreciated was the inclusion of so-called "paranormal Bigfoot" events; those encounters involving UFOs, Bigfoot, and other anomalous phenomena.

Bigfoot Casebook gives a history of Bigfoot sightings, and presents a time line and context of sightings that any Bigfoot researcher, as well anyone with a more casual interest, will find usefull and enjoyable.

Bigfoot Encounters in New York & New England [Paperback]
By Paul B. Bartholomew and Robert E. Bartholomew

For over thirty years, two New York State brothers, Robert and Paul Bartholomew, have methodically researched, documented, and studied the Bigfoot question in both New York and the New England states.

Customer Review
This book, clocking in at just over 145 pages, is a pretty worthy successor and update to an earlier book both authors co-wrote with Bill Brann and Bruce Hallenbeck in 1992. It covers sightings and reports in the Empire State, but also covers reports in New England States (Connecticut, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and even all the way to Maine). The brother authors do look at the different theories as to the possible existence of the Sasquatch, even delving into alternate explanations (though they are quick to point out they do not necessarily believe those explanations). I would give this one 4 out of 5 stars, but it is still not quite as good as MOTN.

Bigfoot Encounters in Ohio : Quest for the Grassman [Import] [Paperback]
By Christopher L. Murphy
In association with Joedy Cook and George Clappison

Mysteries Magazine review

State surveys of Bigfoot/Sasquatch activity are rare, and none to date approaches Bigfoot Encounters in Ohio's high level of excellence. Although a slim volume at 150 pages (index included), it delivers more than its retail price in quality of content and production.

From its glossy paper to its 141 brilliant illustrations, this book exemplifies small press publishing at its finest. More important, however, is the broad scope of its relatively abbreviated text, which manages to cover not only the Buckeye State's 153 Bigfoot reports between 1869 and 2004--with discrete subchapters for 43 counties and two major parks--but also to survey such diverse topics as the origin of Bigfoot's nickname, the 1967 Patterson film, and unknown primates reported from other parts of the world throughout human history.

In short, Bigfoot Encounters in Ohio is a satisfying feast of knowledge that no self-respecting cryptozoologist (armchair or otherwise) should omit from his or her library. The authors are veteran Bigfooters with some two decades of field research under their belts, and it shows in their finished product.

Bigfoot In Georgia [Paperback]
January 1, 2010
By Jeffery Wells

I have to confess that just the title alone on this book sold me before the book had even been released. When I did receive my copy and read it, I was not disappointed. This really is the definitive treatment of the subject of Bigfoot in Georgia, or, as we here at the Georgia Bigfoot Society prefer to call him, Sasquatch. What I found most interesting about this book were the numerous historical accounts of Sasquatch in Georgia, including Indian stories and legends. And, for those inclined to pursue these stories in greater detail, the endnotes provided by by Mr. Wells were most informative. But the truly greatest highlight of this book was the author's treatment of the Elkins Creek cast. It was the most in depth and detailed account of that discovery that I have ever read.

So, in conclusion, I must admit that it was hard to find any fault with this book. It now has a permanent place on a shelf in my library of Sasquatchery, right along side of such classics as "Sasquatch: Legend Meets Science" by Dr. Jeff Meldrum and "Bigfoot Sasquatch Evidence" by Dr. Grover S. Krantz. I highly recommend it to any serious student of the Big Guy in Georgia.

Bigfoot Observer's Field Manual: A practical and easy-to-follow step-by-step guide to your very own face-to-face encounter with a legend [Paperback]
October 1, 2008
By Robert Morgan

Robert Morgan, a credible and experienced BF hunter, has drafted a manual for those interested in taking their chances and setting out to encounter one of these mystical creatures - follow his guidelines and you too will see one (although for obvious reasons he falls short of making specific promises or references). The author does not waste any time in clearly distinguishing himself and his methods from the rest of Bigfoot hunters clad in camo, toting loud speakers, fruits, telephoto lenses, and even weapons of all sorts. He patiently explains his peaceful and almost spiritual approach to his followers so they can prepare the right conditions to enable such an encounter. I actually thought his strategy made a lot of sense.

This is not a narrative of witness accounts, and most of the pictures are familiar to those who are worth their salt in hominid research. I only wish he included some more anecdotes and real life experiences tied to his suggestions in order to spice up his manual. However, the book deserves recognition for the way it provides and explains an alternative way of "hunting" these elusive creatures (for seasoned hunters and beginners alike).

Bigfoot Sasquatch: Evidence [Paperback]
June 1999
By Dr. Grover S. Krantz

Dr Grover Krantz, a Physical Anthropologist examines the objective evidence for the existence of the Sasquatch. This book was previously published in the early 1990's as "Big Foot Prints". This new edition is updated with the latest developments in this field. Among the evidence examined is the 1967 Roger Patterson film, the 1970 Bossburg cripple prints, the dermal ridge prints found by a U.S. Forestry worker in the 1980's. Dr. Krantz analyzes the objective physical evidence and also compares the physical description of the Sasquatch with Hominds known from the fossil record. Dr Kranz presents a strong case for G. Blacki as being the mostly likely match for the present day Sasquatch. There have been many books on this subject from lay persons, however this book is written by a leading Scientist and deals with facts and presents a levelheaded view of this subject. There is a fair amount of technical information however it is presented in a fashion that a lay person can easily understand. Several of Dr Krantz's published papers are in the appendix, these were originally published in academic anthropology publications. Dr Krantz has been studying this subject since the 1960's, when it was academic and scientific suicide to publicly express serious interest in this subject. He has pioneered the way for the later Scientists to investigate this subject without the censure he was subjected to in the 1970's and 1980's. Today it is considered acceptable to study cryptozoologic animals, however this has not always been the case. Dr. Krantz states that he believes the only way to settle this subject is for a physical specimen (a type speciment-that can be studied by Scientists). It is likely when this happens that the Sasquatch will then be declared an endangered species. Based on the known information, the Sasquatch is extremely shy, nocturnal, and is usually in densely forested areas. This may be one reason why there has not been a specimen taken to date. It is likely as more Scientists are involved in this investigation and lay persons that the proof of existence will be forthcoming. The reports have been occuring for hundreds of years and the physical descriptions are all remarkably similar. This animal has been sighted by police officers, clergy, military personnel, hunters and other credible witnesses. It is hard to read this volume and not be convinced that there is a strong case for the existence of this animal.

Cryptozoology A To Z: The Encyclopedia of Loch Monsters, Sasquatch, Chupacabras, and Other Authentic Mysteries of Nature [Paperback]
August 5, 1999
By Loren Coleman and Jerome Clark

The Loch Ness Monster, Bigfoot, the Abominable Snowman -- these are the names of the elusive beasts that have caught the eye and captured the imaginations of people around the world for centuries. Recently, tales of these "monsters" have been corroborated by an increase in sightings, and out of these legends a new science has been born: cryptozoology -- the study of hidden animals.

Cryptozoology A to Z, the first encyclopedia of its kind, contains nearly two hundred entries, including cryptids (the name given to these unusual beasts), new animal finds, and the explorers and scientists who search for them. Loren Coleman, one of the world's leading cryptozoologists, teams up with Jerome Clark, editor and author of several encyclopedias, to provide these definitive descriptions and many never-before-published drawings and photographs from eyewitnesses' detailed accounts. Full of insights into the methods of these scientists, exciting tales of discovery, and the history and evolution of this field, Cryptozoology A to Z is the most complete reference ever of the newest zoological science.

About the Author
Loren Coleman, a forty-year veteran of cryptozoological field expeditions and research, has written several books on nature's mysterious creatures, including The Field Guide to Bigfoot, Mysterious America, and Tom Slick and the Search for the Yeti, and has served as both on- and off-camera consultant to NBC-TV's Unsolved Mysteries, and A&E;'s Ancient Mysteries. Coleman is the mission cryptozoologist for the 1999 Nessa Project's search for the Loch Ness Monster, and a consultant to a forthcoming expedition in search of Mongolia's hairy wildmen, the Almas. He is a professor at the University of Southern Maine and lives in Portland.

The Discovery of the Sasquatch: Reconciling Culture, History, and Science in the Discovery Process [Perfect Paperback]
By John A. Bindernagel
Foreword by Leila Hadj-Chikh

Customer Review
In the past, all books by this publisher have been by mail I think, although in rural Washington State outdoor stores I have seen a lot of the older books available on a rotating wire rack. You know... this has almost always been the case. Back in the 60's, John Green's books could only be found in supermarkets (back then $3.95 wasn't that cheap to me). There were no super bookstores like they have today.

For what is in this book, I think the price is very reasonable and confirms my own thoughts on the subject. Spend less time trying to convince people and more in trying to study the damn thing.

John has really surprised me with his two books. His first being the beginnings of a field guide on the Sasquatch and the latter, arguments that Sasquatch research falls right in line with all the other questionable subjects that have suffered the same fate only to be re-discovered on science's terms.

I love the parts where John brings up the fact that early Sasquatch reports detailed anatomical and behavioral features far in advance to those recently brought to light for the other great apes... like meat eating, branch breaking, throwing objects with accuracy, it's odor, to name a few. When science finally catches up with the rest of us, one of the first questions they will ask is what is known about this animal. Guess where they are going to look?

As John brings up, science knows that primates and other large mammals came across Beringia in the past. Asia and North America had Elephants, Humans, Camels, not to mention similar plant life. Arguing that there are no great ape fossils within this continent is not really the problem they want us to believe it is. For instance, what was the total amount of woolly mammoths in the Americas? What is the body size ratio of a Gigantopithecus specimen to that of a mammoth? How many remains of the mammoths were too large for nature to do them in compared to something the size of Giganto? You could get rodents carting off Giganto's bones and teeth, but a mammoth tusk? You could also get water, sand and wind erosion eating away a primate bones but something as large as a mammoth would out last them due to the shear bulk. What if the sudden extinction event was so powerful that smaller bodies got pulverized, blown or washed away, versus what we have found for mammoths?

Then there is the question of tar pits and what findings coming out of them are misidentified or even boxed up and left unpublished until further examination or more finds to complete them?

This, and Johns first book, are some of the very best books ever written on the subject in my opinion and should be included in the personal libraries of all those claiming to be researching or investigating the phenomena. No, I am not afraid of that word anymore.

Encounters with Bigfoot [Paperback]
December 1994
By John Green

Take this book for what it is. Human encounters with alleged sasquatches play a rather small role in the larger debate as to whether these creatures really exist. To my knowledge, this is the best collection of reported Sasquatch encounters currently available. A book specifically dedicated to such encounters belongs in the library of anyone who is interested in the subject. As such, this book is literally indispensable.

John Green writes well, and has an extensive background cataloguing reported encounters with Bigfoot. He began collecting and recording firsthand accounts in the 1950's. Various sources will claim that Green currently has spoken with between 1,000 and 3,000 individuals who claim to have witnessed the elusive animal. (The fact that this number varies so dramatically is a testament to the kind of second and third hand misinformation of which one needs to be wary in researching the "case" for Sasquatch). Encounters with Bigfoot is copyrighted 1980, and as of copyright date Green's files included approximately 1,000 reports from California, Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia, combined. Taken collectively, those reports from the balance of North America comprise a substantially smaller number of files.

Encounters With Bigfoot provides the reader with a select subset of John Green's larger collection. As described in the book, alleged encounters with the animal itself (by western Europeans) or discoveries of possible tracks date back to 1811 in North America. The author gives considerable treatment to incidents dating to the 1800's, and he describes many alleged sightings and track discoveries that are quite interesting.

When Green cites period newspaper articles which indicate that some of California's earliest western European settlers (from the Gold Rush through the 1870's) were convinced that Gorillas lived in the California wilderness, it really makes you wonder.

Some of the cases that Green describes include individuals who claim to have had encounters on more than one occasion, or situations where multiple witnesses maintain that they saw a group of three or four of these animals together for an extended period. Most of the alleged encounters include full details including the names of the witnesses, dates, and relatively specific geographical locations.

One very interesting case came on the heels of a "flurry" of alleged Sasquatch activity around the Nooksack River, near Bellingham, WA, in the fall of 1975. Initially, there had been numerous reports of hairy bipeds in the area, and in one instance the captain of the police force had actually fired upon a six-foot tall, hair-covered animal in the brush.

Then, on the evening of October 23, 1975, the police sergeant answered a call where someone was believed to be pounding on the back wall of a house. No prowler was found, but there had been some damage to the property. Hours later, at 2:20 a.m., the sergeant responded to another call at the same property. Per Green, "[the sergeant's] spotlight quickly picked up what looked like a very large ape standing in the back yard." Apparently, the thing didn't flee, but simply crouched down as the sergeant approached, and then stayed in that position. Ultimately, seven people reportedly watched this "ape" in the officer's spotlight for "many minutes" during this early morning encounter. The sergeant maintains that he himself walked within 35 feet of the animal. In his official police report, the sergeant estimates that this "ape" stood between 7 and 8 feet tall. His report also provides detailed information about many of the other physical features of this animal. (pp.61-62)

This kind of stuff is fun to read. As I said above, this is perhaps the best currently available collection of such reports. Again, as such, it is indispensable.

About the Author
John Green is the pre-eminent authority on the fascinating question of whether mankind shares North America with another upright walking primate. He has researched the subject for more than 20 years and assembled a file of more than 2000 reports.

Enoch: A Bigfoot Story [Paperback]
May 17, 2010
By Autumn Williams

As a child, Autumn Williams saw two hair-covered creatures standing in the woods behind her home in Washington State. She has spent her entire adult life seeking to understand why those non-human eyes held such an expression of human-like intelligence. What is the nature of a Sasquatch? Is it human? Animal? Or something in-between? How does Bigfoot live? How does it interact with others of its kind? And how would it interact with us? What would we learn about these creatures, if we stopped pursuing them... and they no longer avoided us? One man would finally offer answers to those questions. He is more than a witness. He is the friend of a wild man... and he calls him Enoch.

About the Author
Autumn Williams has conducted Bigfoot research for 20 years. As the child of a family of long-term witnesses in Washington state, Autumn has focused her research on habituators - people who claim ongoing encounters with Sasquatch. She created OregonBigfoot.com as a central clearinghouse for Bigfoot reports in Oregon and a means to disseminate information as it comes across her desk. Oregon Bigfoot has since grown into a close-knit community of really wonderful folks from all across the country. In 2003, Autumn hosted the television series MYSTERIOUS ENCOUNTERS on Outdoor Life Network. In 2005, she directed and produced a documentary, OREGON BIGFOOT: SEARCH FOR A LIVING LEGEND. She currently lives in Oregon.

Field Guide to the Sasquatch (Sasquatch Field Guide Series) [Paperback]
January 11, 1992
By David George Gordon

Customer Review
This volume was written in 1992 in association with the International Society of Cryptozoology, and concidently published by Sasquatch books. This is a brief guide to the elusive creature known as Sasquatch or Bigfoot. The book is divided into several chapters with discussion of the many names for this creature, a possible "family tree", a description of the creature, and comparative footprints of the Sasquatch/human/bears etc. Also selected sightings in the Pacific Northwest are mentioned. There are corresponding state/providence maps where the sightings are located by number referrencing the text. There is also a section advising on possible ways to find a Sasquatch and what to do in this event. The book is illustrated by excellent drawings, including one of the Sasquatch based on eyewitness descriptions. This is a brief overview of the Sasquatch/Bigfoot cryptid. Readers looking for more in depth information are advised to read Dr Grover Krantz's 1999 Bigfoot/Sasquatch Evidence, Dr John Bindernagels' "North America's Great Ape, The Sasquatch" or one of John Green's several books on the subject. That being said, this is an excellent introduction to the subject and will help the reader decide for himself if he would like to pursue further reading on this creature. This book is also an excellent resource for younger readers and would certainly be an interesting book review subject for school. Probably should be on the bookshelf of anyone interested in this subject as part of their collection.

Hiking the Bigfoot Country (A Sierra Club Totebook) [Paperback]
June 12, 1982
By John Hart

"Hiking the Bigfoot Country" is the first and still the only reasonably comprehensive guide to hiking in the rugged Klamath Mountains of northern California and southwest Oregon, a fascinating region including the Siskiyous, the Trinity Alps, and many other destinations. Though in need of updating, the book remains in steady demand as a tool for hikers and conservationists wishing to explore a part of the world known for Bigfoot sightings, rare flowering plants and trees, wild rivers and spiny peaks, and wilderness solitude.

About the Author
John Hart is the author of a dozen books on environmental issues and wilderness travel, including the low-impact bible "Walking Softly in the Wilderness: The Sierra Club Guide to Backpacking", just out in its third edition. Among his numerous recognitions is the David Brower Award for Outstanding Service in the Field of Conservation, given by the American Alpine Club. Hart is also a noted poet, with a title, "The Climbers," in the prestigious University of Pittsburgh poetry series.

Customer Review
This little (fits in a jacket pocket. Handy!) book is a masterpiece and worth every penny. Not only do you get detailed maps and descriptions of trails in the Kalmiopsis wildland, Red Buttes and High Siskiyous, but you are also given good advice: walk it(don't ride, bike or drive). Pack everything out with you (rather than burying it. The bears *will* dig it up). John Hart tells you how to access some very obscure and little-known trails, how to follow trails which are faint, neglected and devastated by natural or human-inflicted disaster(s), gives you a "heads up" about areas where you might otherwise unwittingly trample salamanders and/or rare plants and speaks about wilderness areas that were (and still are) threatened by the activities of loggers and miners in Northern California and Southern Oregon. He gives potentially life-saving information, pinpointing locations of clean drinking water and shelter, weather conditions and recommendations for clothing and gear. Even if you never get off the sofa and go for a hike, this book is a terrific read!

The Historical Bigfoot [Paperback]
August 22, 2006
By Chad Arment

The Historical Bigfoot covers sightings of Wild Men, Gorillas, Yahoos, and What-Is-It's, from the early 1800s to the 1940s. Before the term "Bigfoot" was coined to signify an unknown species of North American primate, sightings of towering bipedal apes were reported throughout the continent, but called a variety of names. This book compiles and sorts the most significant sightings, but also provides a look at hoaxes, misidentifications, and the influential perspective of newspaper editors as they dealt with reports of a strange hairy manlike ape.

The Hoopa Project: Bigfoot Encounters in California [Paperback]
August 31, 2008
By David Paulides
Illustrated by Harvey Pratt

This book, written by former police investigator Paulides, covers a 3-year investigation into the Hoopa Reservation and town just 14 miles north of the Bigfoot Capitol of the World, Willow Creek, California. He interviews many natives of the area and has each of them sign an affidavit, attesting to each witness' truthfulness. There are photos of all the witnesses, and also of the locations these sightings took place in. An interesting note is that some of the sightings took place in the same proximity and within less than a mile from each other. The witnesses' tales are quite compelling and stark in their detail, but Paulides has gone beyond just giving witnesses' descriptions-he also brings in forensic artist Harvey Pratt, who has done quite a bit of sketch work for the FBI and Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, and did the initial sketches of the BTK Killer, the Green River Killer, Ted Bundy, Henry Lucas, Otis O'Toole and many other famous cases, and utilizes his skills in forensic art to bring a truer picture of the witnesses' sightings to life, which he does in bold detail. The Sasquatch creatures portrayed by Pratt as described by the witnesses describe a more humanlike face than apelike, whcih is quite fascinating. I highly recommend this book.

Impossible Visits: The Inside Story of Interactions with Sasquatch at Habituation Sites [Paperback]
February 2, 2009
By Christopher Noel

Until very recently, our only publicly shared knowledge of Sasquatch (aka Bigfoot) came through chance encounters, fleeting glimpses, and the rare piece of movie or video footage. Yet meanwhile, throughout North America, certain people were busy pursuing private knowledge much more effectively. Now, Impossible Visits, the first book of its kind, chronicles the groundbreaking work of such ordinary human beings who have experienced, sometimes for many years, consistent Sasquatch visitations to their homes and properties (at "habituation sites") and have sought--in the great and humane spirit of Jane Goodall and Dian Fossey--to learn from this retiring, intelligent, primate species. The book features half a dozen richly detailed first-person testimonials, which convey a textured sense of the nature and behavior of Sasquatch, and of the interactions one can have with members of this ancient race. This inter-species relationship is very strange and oblique, because Sasquatch has survived alongside Homo sapiens, down through the eons, thanks only to enormous stealth, to maintaining a necessary physical distance. The contributors to this book have succeeded, however, through patience and good will, not in erasing this distance but in establishing a mutual trust that allows for nonverbal, acoustical communication, the regular exchange of food and gifts, and even occasional clear sightings. Impossible Visits also covers the author's own fieldwork in northern Vermont, as well as other late-breaking developments in the burgeoning field of Sasquatch research.

The Locals: A Contemporary Investigation of the Bigfoot/Sasquatch Phenomenon [Paperback]
November 2003
By Thom Powell

Bigfoots ARE The Locals. They live here. They were here before we humans showed up on the continent and they will likely outlast us. This is a 'bigfoot book' yet it probes much deeper than a simple treatment of the hackneyed question of 'Does Bigfoot exist?'. This book delves into such questions as why bigfoots exist, why they behave as they do, and why they have not yet been, and may never be dragged into the spotlight of science and the media. And don't look to 'science' for answers, because science is currently unequipped to shed any light on this profound anthropological mystery.

Meet the Sasquatch [Paperback]
September 2004
By Christopher L Murphy
In association with John Green and Thomas Steenburg

Monsters of New Jersey: Mysterious Creatures in the Garden State [Paperback]
September 2010
By Loren Coleman and Bruce G. Hallenbeck

Bizarre beasts stalk New Jersey, from down the shore to the creepy Pine Barrens and even in many of the bustling cities. This book presents stories of the best known of the Garden State's cryptid population, including Big Red Eye, the state's resident Bigfoot, found in the Great Swamp of Somerset County; Monkey-Man of Hoboken, an urban Sasquatch; the Lizardman of Great Meadows; and, the state's most infamous creature, the Jersey Devil.

Customer Review
Now, Loren Coleman and Bruce Hallenbeck bring us the details that were tucked away in old newspaper reports and magazine features, and in the latest television documentaries, suggesting that not only "winged weirdies" but Bigfoot-like manimals as well have been reported in NJ over the years: reports of The Hoboken "Monkey-Man", "Big Red Eye" and other entities show that the Garden State holds its own in matters of cryptozoological interest.

"Monsters of New Jersey" is a must-have for paranormal researchers and casual readers alike. It should remind everyone that the unknown is not confined to distant mountain ranges and impenetrable forests. The country road, the local lake and patches of wilderness between major arteries can offer unexpected chills...and can take you by surprise!

Monsters of Pennsylvania: Mysterious Creatures in the Keystone State [Paperback]
April 1, 2010
By Patty A. Wilson

Customer Review
I really enjoyed The Kindle version of Monsters of Pennsylvania. The book is mostly a collection of witness stories from the Keystone State with the first half of the book devoted to Bigfoot in PA and the rest of the book highlighting a host of odd encounters with the state's other mysterious monsters.

The book is written in an engaging, easy to read way that allows you to be immersed in the stories of encounters from all over the state. I liked the way the stories were witness accounts but retold in a organized, easy to follow manner. I am hoping the author tackles other monsters in other states, soon.

About the Author
Patty A. Wilson, who lives in central Pennsylvania, is the author of Haunted West Virginia and Haunted North Carolina and the co-author of The Big Book of Pennsylvania Ghost Stories and Haunted Pennsylvania.

Monsters of Texas [Paperback]
May 27, 2010
By Ken Gerhard and Nick Redfern

Texas - or the Lone Star State, as it is affectionately and widely known - is the second largest U.S. state in both area and population, and contains both colorful and majestic landscapes that range from desert to plains, and forest to wild canyons. But that is not all: all across Texas there lurks a wide array of monsters, mysterious beasts and diabolical creatures that science tells us do not exist - but that a significant percentage of the good folk of Texas certainly know otherwise.

Customer Review
This slim book of less than 150 pages is a compendium of Texas monster sighting lore, covering creatures and reported strange happenings, going back to even before the Alamo. Put together in collaboration by Texas residents (and Fortean cryptozoology researchers) Ken Gerhard and Nick Redfern, Monsters of Texas is a fast, breezy, thoroughly entertaining read that serves up a smorgasbord collection of reputed Lone Star encounters with giant turtles, giant catfish, black panthers, goat-man creatures (one of whom who could reportedly toss an automobile tire some 500 yards), giant hairy himinids of the bigfoot/skunk ape persuasion, walk- like-a-man "manwolf" or "dogman" THINGS that are about as close to the folkloric werewolf as you can get without locating any transformational human "suspects" in the neighborhood. There are huge condor-like birds to consider, too (Thunderbirds?)---these as big as small private aircraft---and even airborne whatsits that resemble leathery-winged mesozoic pterosaurs like pteranodons and pterodactyls.

Mountain Mysteries: The Mystic Traditions of Appalachia [Paperback]
April 1, 2007
By Larry Thacker

A near-obsessive pursuit of ghost stories and odd superstitions cranks up this serious study of Appalachian tales of the supernatural and their origin in both old-world customs and real historical events. An effort to preserve and record one aspect of a dying way of life, the book relies on interviews and historic documents to search for the facts behind local lore of murder, witchcraft, and weird hauntings. Several campfire-worthy ghost stories are recounted in their entirety—including "The Swinging Gate of Fern Lake Hollow"—and an unexpectedly large number of stories about aliens and UFOs provide an interesting comparison of three-century-old mysteries and those stirred up in comparatively recent times

Customer Review
Author Larry Thacker (director of student success and retention at Lincoln Memorial University in Tennessee) presents Mountain Mysteries: The Mystic Traditions of Appalachia, a collection of untold and overlooked stories of the paranormal in Appalachia - the tales and legends disdained by mainstream scholarly thought. Delving into esoteric topics such as the Oak Ridge UFO connection, psychics, the Appalachian Sasquatch, death lore, and more, Mountain Mysteries at once seeks to explore the supernatural and debunk urban myths. "Though the death beliefs of the Cherokee evolved as time and exposure to white culture progressed, one predominant theme seemed to persist, an often universal and symbolic avoidance of being polluted by the dead. Most death-related activities were viewed as unclean and warranted immediate and strict purification regimens. Being in death's presence, witnessing a death, bringing about death in battle, or being a mourner merited such ceremony." A handful of black-and-white photographs illustrate this trailblazing guide to Appalachian myth and unexplained phenomena.

The baby had just been birthed and he takes it to the woods hoping his mother would return for the infant, she never did and he found the remains a couple of weeks later.....He sent the remains to a DNA research facility and is still waiting for the results, so far after eight months the dna strainds have not been traceable to any known species... This book is a true story and probably one of the most in-depth studies ever conducted by any Bigfoot researcher in the world....Read the book and make up your own mind.....

Notes From the Field: Tracking North America's sasquatch [Paperback]
February 21, 2010
By William Jevning

From the most ancient time of human existence, stories of strange man-animals have been passed down in legends and myth. These stories have been told in all parts of the world, and are remarkably similar. How could such stories be created, and why? Could the collective unconscious memory of humanity hold within it lurking shadows of creatures we once knew? Creatures that today exist only as legend and myth-could there be more-is there more? Fossil records firmly establish that once there did exist a giant ape- like creature called Gigantopithecus. Scientists have determined that this ape-like creature was between 10 and 12 feet in height and weighed approximately 1,200 pounds. This creature actually did exist, but no one really knows much more about about it other than its weight and height, and no one knows anything about its behavioral characteristics. Could it have been the ancestor to the sasquatch of today? no one really knows-nor does it matter. The simple fact that such creatures did exist at one time makes the possibility of ape-like giants existing today real. "Notes From the Field, Tracking North America's sasquatch" is a study into this issue, it covers ancient descriptions from different parts of the world and tracks this creature to modern times and discusses recent field discoveries.

Recasting Bigfoot: Uncovering the Truth About Sasquatch Amidst the Hype of Bigfoot [Paperback]
November 12, 2010
By Gian J. Quasar

This is not a book about Bigfoot. It’s not a compilation of sightings out to prove the giant cone-headed legend of the forest exists. Rather it is a book that looks behind the folklore to uncover the facts . . .and not only the facts but the very first facts and evidence.

Most people know that the modern legend of Bigfoot evolved out of the old Indian stories of the Sasquatch. But what most people do not know is that Sasquatch represented two tribes of primitive Indians that lived deep in the mountainous Saskahaua District of British Columbia. One tribe spoke something akin to the Douglas dialect. To the Indians they were giants. The irony, however, is that to the shorter races of the Pacific Northwest giant always meant 6 and a half feet tall.

Anthropologists, sociologists and journalists have written books and chronicled sightings and endorsed footprints that depended on White Man’s mistake of thinking giant meant something 8 or 9 feet tall. But author Gian J. Quasar takes up the pen of an Historian for Recasting Bigfoot and exposes 50 years of modern myth. Seeking primary sources he discovers the actual footprint of the Sasquatch was preserved long before the hype of Bigfoot and popular myth. Following this true but radically different footprint he is able to build the image of the real Sasquatch and reveal the origins of the frightening “animal human” described in old frontier journals and Indian histories.

Despite 50 years of hype and hyperbole this is really the first book on the true Sasquatch. What underlies the bloated legend of Bigfoot is actually far more disturbing and intriguing than the popular myth-- disturbing because for 50 years “researchers” ignored the real footprint in order to chase their own created chimera; intriguing because there really was something startling to find. Recasting Bigfoot is both an exposé of Bigfootery and a search for the identity of both tribes of “Sasquatch men.”

About the Author
Gian J. Quasar has become representative of Generation X and its search to uncover the truth of the great world mysteries that dominated their upbringing in the 1970s. In a genre where folklore and popular myth create reality he has distinguished himself by his serious approach and historian’s eye to uncover primary sources. He is acknowledged as the world authority on the Bermuda Triangle, having devoted the last 20 years to its research. In 2003 McGraw-Hill published his book Into the Bermuda Triangle. His book THEY FLEW INTO OBLIVION inspired a 2 hour NBC produced special and a Resolution in Congress sponsored by E. Clay Shaw.

Sasquatch: The Apes Among Us [Paperback]
June 30, 2006
By John Willison Green

With the explosion of knowledge taking place in recent decades, scientists are constantly discovering that things they have been certain about are wrong: the continents they thought had been in place forever actually drift around; the cells we are made of are not simple but infinitely complex; our genus has been on Earth many times longer than they thought. And increasingly, there is compelling evidence that scientists are wrong about our living relatives. One thing considered certain was that the giants and wild men in stories from all over the world are entirely imaginary. Now that belief is under serious challenge. Forty-five years ago, giant footprints found in northern California brought Bigfoot to the attention of many and revived interest in Canada's Sasquatch. Every year since then additional evidence has accumulated, and now that witnesses can submit information via the internet, the trickle of reports has become a flood. John Green has been in the thick of things from the beginning. In "Sasquatch, The Apes Among Us", first published in 1978, he sampled the evidence from the earliest records up to the late 1970s and from all around the world, then concentrated on two aspects of the subject: the nature of the animal described and the wealth of reports from parts of North America outside the Pacific Northwest. When it came out, "The Apes Among Us" was acclaimed as the definitive work on the fascinating subject of whether humans share North America with a giant bipedal primate that is unknown to science. Since then, evidence for the existence of that unknown primate has grown exponentially, and individual scientists have written books about aspects of it. Remarkably, however, to most of the scientific world, the evidence remains unknown and unexplored, and for those who do follow the subject this is still the definitive book.

Sasquatch: Legend Meets Science [Paperback]
September 4, 2007
By Dr. Jeff Meldrum

"Jeff Meldrum's book Sasquatch: Legend Meets Science brings a much needed level of scientific analysis to the Sasquatch - or Bigfoot - debate. Does Sasquatch exist? There are countless people - especially indigenous people - in different parts of America who claim to have seen such a creature. And in many parts of the world I meet those who, in a matter- of-fact way, tell me of their encounters with large, bipedal, tail-less hominids. I think I have read every article and every book about these creatures, and while most scientists are not satisfied with existing evidence, I have an open mind."
--Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE UN Messenger of Peace & Founder - The Jane Goodall Institute

"Jeff Meldrum is a scientist, an expert in human locomotor adaptations. In Sasquatch: Legend Meets Science he examines all evidence critically, not to force a conclusion, but to establish a baseline of facts upon which further research can depend. His science is not submerged by opinion and dogmatic assumption. With objectivity and insight he analyzes evidence from tracks, skin ridges on the soles of feet, film footage, and DNA, and he compares it to that on primates and various other species. He disentangles fact from anecdote, supposition, and wishful thinking, and concludes that the search for yeti and sasquatch is a valid scientific endeavor. By offering a critical scrutiny, Sasquatch does more for this field of investigation than all the past arguments and polemics of contesting experts."
--Dr. George Schaller, Vice-President of the Wildlife Conservation

Shady Neighbors [Paperback]
March 9, 2011
By Thom Powell and Guy Edwards

A rural living family is threatened by imminent development of their rural landscape. At the same time, members of the family begin to notice other strange things occurring around them that seem to indicate that they have been somehow singled-out for some unknown purpose. While the family is trying to figure out how to use the unknown force, the unknown force is also figuring out how to use the family. Ultimately, an uneasy partnership forms as the forces of 'human energy' and 'a greater good' learn how to play on the same team. Baseball has long provided a metaphor for the struggles of our human condition. As one can see from the unique cover art by Guy Edwards, the author has crafted the first fictional story in human history that humorously combines bigfoot and baseball.

About the Author
Thom Powell is an author, science teacher, expert kayaker, and whitewater river guide. His previous literary work, the widely acclaimed 'The Locals,' revolutionized bigfoot/sasquatch field research when it was published in 2003. Many of the radical ideas that were first presented in this seminal volume have gained wide acceptance among today's bigfoot researchers. His new book is another first: a novel that incorporates some of Thom's unique revelations about the bigfoot phenomenon in an original and entertaining story. Thom has also been a lifelong fan of major league and youth baseball, mis-spending much of his own youth at Cleveland Stadium, watching the Cleveland Indians lose game after game. His love of the game (and the life lessons it offers) figures prominently in the plot of 'Shady Neighbors.' Back in the mid-1980's Thom was also the first kayaker in the western U.S. to pioneer the use of a new style of stunt kayak know as a 'squirt boat' that is capable of underwater maneuvers. Virtually all whitewater kayaks now incorporate design elements borrowed from these tiny kayaks that were once so radically different. Thom is known for coining the phrase 'mystery move' to describe the squirt boater's most impressive underwater maneuver. Mr. Powell is a dynamic, veteran science teacher of 26 years experience at Robert Gray Middle School in the Hillsdale neighborhood of southwest Portland. He lives with his family beside the Clackamas River near Oregon City.

Teluke A Big Foot Account: A Personal Account of Interaction with an Older Race of Spiritual Beings [Paperback]
November 21, 2008
By White Song Eagle

If one understands a bit about quantum science you begin to understand that our bodies, in fact our reality is not what we perceive it to be. Speeding up the vibratory rate of molecules changes the density of seemingly solid objects, which is mostly space anyway. H2O becomes solid (ice), liquid (water) or vapor (steam) and our bodies are mostly water and space. Allowing quantum mechanics to maintain the founding perception of reality in this book, one steers clear of science fiction in this no holds barred recounting of interaction with Sasquatch, or Big Foot. The author tells of a year and a half of her life as she tends to a Big Foot family on the family horse farm. Unlike other reports, White Song's sensitive perception picks up the vibration of the Big Foot when they are unnoticed by others and allows interaction with them. Many unusual insights are revealed and much can be gained by digesting this intelligently written book with an open mind. Many of the states of consciousness and states of unconsciousness are detailed in Eckhart Tolle's book "A New Earth" (from the Opra show). Remarkable in content, exciting and a fun read whether one believes or not. Excellent food for thought.

Customer Review
I'm pretty open minded about most things. The physical dimension we "see" is but one of many we are part of. This book explains the author's experiences with a Big Foot family from the perspective that they are visible in dimensions other than the one we are most familiar with. Once I started reading, its like the family of Big Foot humans, (yes, humans not apes) came alive on every page. You could follow the unfolding progression of the relationship she was developing with them. The account is so vivid it is like being there and experiencing it first hand. Well written and captivating. If you believe in Big Foot, you will really enjoy this book. If you dont believe, you may change your mind after reading it.

Tom Slick: True Life Encounters in Cryptozoology [Paperback]
July 1, 2002
By Loren Coleman

This true story of Texas millionaire Tom Slick's quest for the Abominable Snowman and other cryptids-creatures unknown to science-reveals a life made for the movies. Fascinating stories of Slick's early brushes with adventure such as his stepfather's abduction by George "Machine Gun" Kelly in 1933 and his creation of a research facility near Loch Ness are followed by his later expeditions into Nepal and the Pacific Northwest in search of the yeti and its counterpart, the Sasquatch. The story of Slick's amazing, fanatic, and driven search for the stuff of legends takes readers on a whirlwind journey from the dense temperate rainforests of Washington State to the icy peaks of the Himalayas-and shows that sometimes cryptids leave the halls of the imagination and are found and captured, as proved by the giant panda and the Komodo dragon, leaving readers to wonder what more there is to be discovered.

"Coleman did an excellent job on this book! Very well written and informative." — The Lebanon Daily Record

Tribal Bigfoot [Paperback]
May 25, 2009
By David Paulides
Illustrated by Harvey Pratt

We have all heard how a movie sequel is usually better than the original. The Empire Strikes Back, Godfather II, Transformers II. Well, in books, sometimes a sequel comes along that blows its predecessor away; that has happened with the new book Tribal Bigfoot. Those who read David's excellent original book last year (the Bigfoot Book of the Year 2008) know that there was a good deal of reports from the Hoopa reservation in Northwest California. For Tribal, David revisits the NW part of the Golden State, by going to Del Norte, Siskiyou, Humboldt and Trinity Counties to investigate more reports that have been investigated by him and his team. He also revisits Hoopa by asking the witnesses who did not have sketches done for Project to have the sketches made by Harvey Pratt the famed forensic artist, which they are. But Paulides goes beyond NW California in this book; he also travels to the Sooner State of Oklahoma to interview eyewitnesses, as well as to The Land of 10,000 Lakes, Minnesota. Not only are there witnesses interviewed and sketches drawn of eyewitness accounts, but Paulides also comes to some startling conclusions as to the true nature of the Sasquatch, via DNA tests and just talking to the eyewitnesses and hearing their descriptions. The DNA tests yield some very surprising results, and Dave follows the evidence as he sees it to its conclusions-that Bigfoot is truly more human than ape, and that they have a language, according to reports he has investigated of witnesses hearing what sounds like Native American language coming from the woods, and also hearing from Native American elders that if a Native American speaks to a Sasquatch in their native tongue, the Sasquatch will understand it. I cannot recommend this book highly enough, and give it not 5, not 6, not even 9, but 10 stars!!!!!! Well-done, Dave and Harvey!!!!!!

TRUE GIANTS: Is Gigantopithecus Still Alive? [Paperback]
November 29, 2010
By Mark A. Hall and Loren Coleman

Do giant primates larger than gorillas, taller than Sasquatch and Yetis, still exist in the remotest corners of the globe? Famed cryptozoologists Mark A. Hall and Loren Coleman join forces to share their knowledge of this unexplored and neglected topic in cryptozoology. Bigfoot researchers have long been mystified, even embarrassed, by reports of giant hairy apes larger than Bigfoot, and as a result eyewitness reports of what Hall and Coleman call True Giants have never been fully considered in the broader zoological context. Reviewing the evidence found in traditions and footprints, folklore and sightings, the authors of this groundbreaking volume present for the first time in one place the wide-ranging argument for the possible survival of a giant species of primate that we know lived on Earth for millions of years. TRUE GIANTS breaks a cryptozoological taboo.

Where Bigfoot Walks: Crossing the Dark Divide [Paperback]
June 18, 1997
By Robert Michael Pyle

Customer Review
If you are a "Bigfoot Believer", a "Cryptid Connoisseur", or looking for photographs of huge hominids emerging from UFO's with Greys looking on, this ain't your book. If you are a regular person who loves nature and is intrigued by a good tale of "What If", this IS your book and you'll love it. Pyle shares with us his love for the Northwest and his concerns for its future. Yes this is largely a symbolic book, with "Bigfoot" symbolizing all we love, and fear, of those far forest places dark and deep and why we are fascinated with them. There is also a tinge of sadness in the book; the ravages of thoughtless environmental damage, the childish quarrels of Bigfoot "Experts". But this is largely a love story, about one last Wild Place, and how such places Haunt our imaginations. You'll love this book.

The Legend Of The Honey Island Swamp Monster
Directed by Dana Holyfield

Dana Holyfield, has compiled a fascinating, hands-on documentary compiling her research into the mysterious beast said to roam the swamps. This docu-drama has the eerie feel of the infamous LEGEND OF BOGGY CREEK from the '70s, as she patrols the river bottoms with hunters and witnesses who for the first time ever speak of their encounters with the hairy critter. There are also some impressive findings in the form of footprints left in the muddy banks as well as her grandfather's own footage of the monster which he filmed in the '60s. Documentaries such as this are hard to come by, and I can't recommend it enough, because we've all heard of the HONEY ISLAND SWAMP MONSTER, yet know so little about it, so this dvd is the best guide to the swamp and its eerie inhabitants. --Neil Arnold, UK

Product Description
This documenary film was featured on FOX NEWS with Sean Hannity. Clips have also been seen on Animal Planet's Lost Tapes. This documentary film takes you deep into the Louisiana Honey Island Swamp, believed to be the home of the legendary creature. Filmmaker, Dana Holyfield, is the grand-daughter to the late Harlan Ford, who was first to report a sighting and appeared on In Search Of with Leonard Nemoy back in the 70's. Holyfield locates Mr. Mills, a retired member of the FFA and co-pilot to Harlan Ford, who was with Ford during the original sighting while on a hunting trip in 1963. Mills tells his side of the story for the first time on camera. Ford's wife donated an old super-8 film reel that she found in Harlan Ford's belongings after he died in 1980. It was labeled, Honey Island Swamp Monster. The footage captured by Ford from a tree-blind, appears to be a hairy, man-like creature walking upright through the swamp about 100 yards from where he was camouflaged. This documentary also introduces more recent eye-witness encounters.

From pilots to policemen to ship captains, a number of seemingly credible people have seen things they can t explain. One part history, one part science and one part monsters, MonsterQuest discovers the truth in these sightings, and the legendary creatures behind them.

This DVD traces the beginning of Bigfoot in the late 1950's till the mid 1990's (but does not include the Freeman footage). I have to admit, it will make you think about what might be out there. I have had a hard time accepting this entire legend, but this DVD presents it in the best possible way. BOTH sides are looked at - why some think it's a real thing, and others that thinks it's a comical hoax. It does analyze the famous 1967 Patterson/Gimlin film of the "female" Bigfoot in northern CA, and does point out things I never noticed in it - making it seem real. It does show the Scott Herriott/Daryl Owen film of the Bigfoot looking them down at a mere 35 feet away, although it's thru thick bushes (and almost spooky).

If you do or do not believe in this, it is worth a look. My personal belief is about 50/50 - how can almost 2000 of these things (according to the DVD) be alive and we only have a few shaky. blurry, far away videos and footprints of it - nothing more? You be the judge.

Sasquatch Horror Collection (1977) DVD
Actors: Bo Svenson, Yvette Mimieux
Directors: Ed Ragozzino, Herb Wallerstein

Customer Review
This two-DVD set features one of the rarest Bigfoot movies ever produced-"Sasquatch: The Legend of Bigfoot", a cult-classic in its own right within the Bigfoot community, and two other films that have seen their share of DVD action in recent years, "Snowbeast" and "Snow Creature." First, the good. All three films have been fully restored ("Sasquatch" is much more noticably clearer and crisper than it has ever been). "Snowbeast" and "Snow Creature" are also very well-preserved. Unfortunately, "Sasquatch" is the best of the three movies. "Snowbeast" (a TV-movie in its original format) is a bit amateurish, and "Snow Creature" is a bit too poorly acted, and the creature looks more like a guy in a suit (of course, in all the movies, it IS a guy in a suit, but in this one, it's even more painfully obvious). Still, the three films are enjoyable in their own way; all three are cheesy but it's good cheese at times. "Sasquatch" has its share of poor acting, to be sure, but it to me is the most enjoyable of the 3 films. I feel a sense of excitement when they find the creatures near the end of the movie, and the creatures... well, I won't spoil the ending. "Snowbeast" is nothing more than a "Jaws" rip-off with a Sasquatch as the main protaganist instead of a 30-foot Great White shark. "Snow Creature", credited as the first Yeti/Sasquatch movie ever, is really not all that compelling or exciting, and all it has going for it is it's the first Yeti/Sasquatch movie ever made. Still, I will give the entire DVD set 3 stars, mainly for the production and crisp restoration done to the three films. I recommend it only for "Sasquatch". Skip the other two movies unless you're really desperate.

Sasquatch Mountain (DVD)
Starring Lance Henriksen and Michael Worth

Customer Review
I've seen some real stinker Bigfoot movies, but I have to say this one is not bad (considering the genre). The acting is decent -- I'd go so far as to call Lance Henriksen "good." The film looks good, except for one scene where a microphone is clearly visible. There are a couple of things about the movie that make it interesting for Bigfoot buffs. First of all, many of the images of the Sasquatch early on are fleeting and show the beast stomping through the woods swinging its arms -- clearly invoking the famous Patterson-Gimlin footage of 1967. In another scene, the folks being stalked by the Sasquatch hole up in a rustic house, which angry Mr. Bigfoot bombards with rocks. This calls to mind the famous Fred Beck "Ape Canyon" incident of the early 1920s in southwest Washington.

The plot of the film concerns an attractive young woman who, due to an unfortunate car accident, is abducted by a gang of bank robbers and forced to flee with them into the Arizona wilderness. The group is pursued by several law enforcement officers; all must join forces when they learn they are the prey of the Sasquatch. Naturally people get picked off one by one, but the gore is not excessive. The portrayal of the Sasquatch at the end even manages to be sympathetic.

OK, it's not "Citizen Kane." But when it comes to Bigfoot movies, you could do worse. Believe me.
