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).Read more ›

Format: Paperback
"Big Footprints," written by physical anthropologist Dr. Grover Krantz, is the only book on the subject of the Sasquatch that explores the enduring mystery from a scientist's point of view. In a lucid, highly readable style, Dr. Krantz separates the solid evidence from the dubious, corrects many famous misconceptions, and, in the end, really takes the skeptics to task. Perhaps the most commendable aspect of this work is the professional and level-headed treatment Krantz gives his topic - a topic that courts the lunatic fringe. The detailed study of the famous "Patterson/Gimlin" film of bigfoot, along with thorough investigation into the veracity of the dermal ridges found in some footprint casts, show this book to be the work of a serious scientist. Personally, I've loaned this book to skeptics who've come away scratching their heads, wondering if we humans might actually share the planet with large, bipedal primates. "Big Footprints" is beyond doubt the finest book ever written on the Sasquatch enigma.

Whether you're new to the Bigfoot mystery or an old hand, this book explains everything you need to know about the best evidence for Bigfoot's existence, the footprints these creatures leave behind. Krantz covers every angle on footprints, from dermal ridges to deformities and depth of impression. His section on the Patterson film presents solid, scientific evidence that the creature filmed is real. While quite technical, this book provides an excellent overview of the topic. If this book can't convince you of Bigfoot's existence, nothing will!

This book goes into great detail on many bigfoot topics from the Patterson film to the study of tracks. It's so in depth that it actually got slightly boring at times, however the information is top-notch. If you really want to understand the evidence out there, read this book.

Format: Paperback
Grover Krantz deserves a place in history for courageouslywriting a clear and scientifically sound description of proof that alarge biped ape-like animal does hide in the forests. Any non-biasedreader who actually examines the overwhelming evidence will be amazed..... Grover details impressive footprint evidence (and some hoaxes)and also how the proportions of the famous 1967 film of a femaleBigfoot could not be a human in a fur suit. He is right. I'm aHollywood animation artist and so I deal in human proportion andmovement. There is simply no way that this film could possibly be ahoax. Even the muscles move under the fur. This is a great book foradults, and also for your favorite young adults. The subject willkeep them interested, and the scientific lucidness will be a goodinfluence on them.

This was my first book i purchased on Bigfoot. after reading books by other authors, this book is still the best i have read. He goes into the subject much deeper then authors like loren coleman do. If you are just starting to get interested in this mystery, this book will teach everything there is to know. rest in peace, Dr Grover Krantz

This is a forum for reviewing books, not arguing with people, so I'll start with my review. This is the lucid, thoughtful, specific book on Sasquatch I think a lot of people always wanted to see, and I thoroughly enjoyed it on my first and many subsequent readings. If you're a BF enthusiast who's gotten numb reading other books' sensationalism or lazy compilations of old anecdotes, you'll enjoy it too. I applaud Krantz not only for his professional courage, but for his level head.
Now to luvthearts and the Patterson film. Krantz goes on at length about how no human being could occupy a costume of that size and shape without adding a new joint in the middle of his forearm. About how prints, at the film site and elsewhere, show features that defy hoaxing. Etc. Etc. I'd get more specific, but Krantz already did, and luvthearts didn't seem to be paying attention then. People can imitate the gait of the Patterson subject? No kidding. I can recite the Gettysburg Address, but that doesn't make me Abe Lincoln. The pursuit of the truth in this matter has been, and will be, hampered by people who feel it's more important to have an opinion than to put any effort into forming one.
