Review

The Bords update their 1982 original with
more sightings of the legendary critter. --Library Journal

About the Author

During the 1980s the Bords wrote books on a wide range of Fortean topics, including Alien Animals, Bigfoot Casebook, Modern Mysteries of Britain, Modern Mysteries of the World (published in the USA as Unexplained Mysteries of the 20th Century), Life Beyond Planet Earth?, and The World of the Unexplained (showcasing the most interesting photographs in the Fortean Picture Library). In more recent years Janet Bord has written several books including Footprints in Stone: Imprints of Giants, Heroes, Holy People, Devils, Monsters and Supernatural Being;, Fairies: Real Encounters with Little People; and The Traveler s Guide to Fairy Sites, and is currently writing books on the holy wells of Britain and Ireland.

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.

I ordered this book because Amazon recommended it to go with Sasquatch: Legend meets Science by Jeff Meldrum. I almost wish I hadn't gotten the book because it isn't as good as I'd expected. I had in the past read some UFO/Bigfoot stories, you get a lot of that here too.

Just over half the book is a recounting of sightings/ encounters of creatures from all over the U.S. from 1818-2004. This includes not just the classic Bigfoot from Washington/Oregon but all sorts of creature sightings. I found it to be somewhat interesting reading but found that many of the cases were something like "June 1870 John Smith in Ohio saw a "hairy man" in the back forty last night" with a few other details. Most of the cases were very skimpy but some were detailed.

Some interesting pictures are included (including some bad photos of creatures, one dead) but these usually don't have anything to do with the text and are sometimes more interesting.

Section 2 of the book is a chronological listing, not updated past 1980, of cases. This is followed by a short bibliography, a magazine list and some online sources- this last could be the best part of the book.

Format: Paperback
I reviewed the original text of this book a few years ago and commented it would be nice to see an updated version... it seems someone was listening and here we are with a reprint and updated version. We get the original text which covers sightings of bigfoots from 1818 up to 1980, continentwide. Now included is coverage from 1981 to 2004. Again, this may be the best book out there for the casual reader as you get a wide variety of coverage covering 'typical' sightings to the ufo/paranormal angle. This new addition doesn't cover every single incident of the last 25 years but gives a very nice cross-section of more current sightings. Once again in the back is a chronological listing of over 1000 sightings only reformatted. Unfortunately this list is from the original and does not include the new addition section. To counteract that though are some new photos throughout the book that I've never seen before, most intriguing is the picture on page 27 of an unknown shot-dead creature, it's hard to figure out what it is but it's very intriguing. Once again, excellent book for all and this is the book a casual reader would want to read.

Format: Paperback
I received a copy of The Bigfoot Casebook Updated: Sightings and Encounters from 1818-2004, which is supposedly to be released March 30. Somehow, I got a copy of it two weeks early. Just flipping through it, I can see several new photos, some never-before-seen, as well as two chapters with updated information from 1981-present day. The list at the end of the book is the same as the one in the original volume, but the sighting reports have been divided into different time periods, interestingly enough, which makes it easier to navigate.

# This book, first released in 1982, was well-acclaimed and well-received by the Sasquatch community. My earlier review of the original volume reflects the earlier times this book was written in. My original review still stands, but this book goes further than the original volume. There are new photos, rarely seen in any other book, as well as new information picking up where the original volume left off (1980; the new volume covers reports from 1981-2004). There is also a new foreword, written by Loren Coleman, as well as contributions to the book from Coleman, Chris Murphy and John Green. This book, available from Idyll Arbor Press, is $18.00 and well-worth every penny. A wonderful update to a true classic in cryptozoological reading.

This book is great for the person who would like to know more about bigfoot. It is broken down into sections where it describes certain aspects of what bigfoot is like, and why he is next to impossible to see. It almost gives you a feeling of what bigfoots thought process might be. It then gives a chronological description of encounters with bigfoot throughout recorded history. I would defintely recommend this book.
