Book Description

“Anyway, one of my friends, about two years older than I, absolutely REFUSED to go in the woods there. We'd romp around the pines everywhere and anywhere else, but he just wouldn't go in that part of the forest. This is even when we were older teens. See, he claimed that years prior he has seen ... something in those woods. A big, hairy man, face covered in hair, standing slouched in the woods staring at him.” – Near Lakehurst, New Jersey – 1980s.

Bigfoot shows up in some unexpected places. There are thousands of reports of encounters of Bigfoot type creatures in North America and the state of New Jersey has its share, with over 200 encounters reported in modern times. The Kittatinny Mountains and the Pine Barrens are two of the places in New Jersey where this unknown hominid has revealed itself most frequently, but sightings have also occurred in areas where one would least expect. Marlboro, Middletown, and Mahwah, are just three of the typically suburban New Jersey towns that have had more than one sighting in the relatively recent past.

The Big Red Eye, the Big Hairy Man, the Bag Man and the Jersey Devil are some of the commonly used names of the Bigfoot/Sasquatch type creatures that have been seen or heard in the woods, swamps and occasional backyards of the Garden State. Whatever name it goes by, reports in New Jersey of encounters with wild hairy men date back to the 19th century and have continued into the present. Reports alone do not prove the Big Red Eye is lurking in the swamps of Mahlon Dickerson Reservation in Morris County, or that the hairy, bi-pedal version of the Jersey Devil, is watching you change your tire, on a moonless night, from just inside the tree-line along Route 72. Something strange is creeping through the forests though, so on your next hike through Allaire State Park, when the birds stop chirping, the bugs stop buzzing, the hair on your arms stands-up, and you feel like you are being watched, consider the experiences of others in that area that are described in the book, and head straight back to the car, then bar.

Bigfoot in the New Jersey Burb’s compiles the more modern sightings and encounters with Bigfoot like entities in the state and offers guidance for where these creatures can be found.

We have broken the encounters into four broad sections, and examine historical and modern accounts in (1) North Jersey, (2) South Jersey, (3) Out of the Way Places and (4) a section we call The Turnpike. In each of the four major sections, we narrow down concentrations of sightings and encounters to General Areas of Interest, and then finally “Hot Spots”.

Bigfoot in the New Jersey 'Burbs provides seasoned Bigfoot researchers, amateur “Squatch” enthusiasts and curious Jersey residents who think nothing fun ever happens in the state, with details of recent sightings and the reasons why these unknown two legged primates tend to be seen in specific areas.

The book contains twenty-two maps, recent rarely seen track photos; real accounts of Bigfoot sightings, advice and techniques that will help the reader maximize their chances of running into a Bigfoot “in our great but not completely paved over yet state.”

William Taylor's "Bigfoot in the Jersey 'Burbs" is a fantastic tome of regional Bigfoot sightings in an area that's not the first one that comes to mind when one hears of Sasquatch sightings. The author delves into the history of Jersey Bigfoot sightings, debates the pros and cons of the state as a potential habitat, and shares information on areas where Bigfoot aficionados might want to search (but watch out for reputed Mafia hit men and the devious Jersey Devil!). A really fun read and highly recommended." - Sean Whitley, Director, "Southern Fried Bigfoot"

5.0 out of 5 stars An exellent read for any bigfoot enthusiast! August 6, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Being that I try to watch everything bigfoot related and check out all bigfoot related stories and site on the web, plus the fact that I live in New Jersey, I knew I had to pick up this book. I was not disappointed.

Even though I am a believer, I never at once felt like the author was trying to force the idea that bigfoot exists onto me. The book and chapters are laid out in such a way that it just presents the stories and sightings, then let's you be the judge. It's not like watching Finding Bigfoot where everything is "squatchy" and here's a squatch, there's a squatch, everywhere a squatch squatch. The book doesn't go so far as to disprove any of the sightings either and again, leaves that up to you the reader to determine what exactly is going on.

Living in South NJ I always knew of Jersey Devil sightings, but not much by way of bigfoot. That was always North West NJ or some other state. After reading I am left wondering whether or not some of the Jersey Devil sightings may have actually been bigfoot related instead. I was planning on going out of state to search for bigfoot but now know i can travel to the state forest by my house for a look!

All in all definitely worth a read. May make some of the skeptics out there turn into somewhat-believers ;)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little Bigfoot book!! August 21, 2012
By Larry R
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Living in northern NJ, I knew of a few NJ sightings, mainly Big Red Eye in Sussex County. I never realized until after reading this very informative book all the different places to look for bigfoot in new jersey. I am a novice bigfoot researcher and have plans on going out into the woods to see whats out there. This book is very easy to understand and provides sighting maps with major street names for reference. I never knew south jersey had so much activity, mainly because I've vacationed in Manahawkin every summer for the past 20 years and never thought of looking for bigfoot 10 minutes from the ocean.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun book, bring your glasses. April 15, 2013
By DV6740
The book is well researched and presents a great overview of Bigfoot in New Jersey with some comical asides. The author knows the state and the subject well. The meat of the book is comprised of a rundown of hot spots in North and South Jersey, with some sighting report excerpts and a lot of info about the locales and some speculation on how Bigfoot might migrate and track food, while remaining hidden from most human eyes.

One drawback is the small font size, which makes the book a little difficult to read. Some charts accompanying the hot spot data are very small indeed and near impossible to read without some kind of magnification.

Other than that it's a fun little read with some great info for anyone interested in Bigfoot in NJ.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprising April 28, 2013
By Andrew
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It was interesting to see how many creature sightings have been reported in what is one of the most densely populated states in the country. Bigfoot enthusiasts will doubtless be encouraged by the information; as for myself I will remain uncommitted but open-minded on the issue.
