Format: Paperback
This book, by Loren Coleman, came out in 1989. However, it is an excellent read, and well-worth purchasing. It chronicles the life of one Thomas Baker Slick, Jr., a millionaire who made his money through oil and other interests. His life was dedicated to pursuit of strange creatures (The Abominable Snowman and Bigfoot only being the most famous). However, he also pursued things like giant salamanders in the Trinity Alps of California. He was going after the Yeti mainly because he believed that the creatures held the key to curing different diseases such as cancer and heart disease. Slick had other interests outside of cryptozoology, however; he set up several foundations in San Antonio, Texas, his homebase, which still operate today and go towards the betterment of man. Slick was tragically killed at age 46 in a plane crash, and is largely forgotten today in many circles, but his contributions to this world are not to be forgotten and he will always be remembered in cryptozoological circles. This book is highly-recommended.

I read this book years ago, perhaps having obtained it from William Corliss' "Sourcebook" list of books. This is typical of Coleman's books -- well researched, well written, and free of the kind of personal anecdote litter and unsubstantiated claims that so characterizes David Hatcher Childress' many efforts.
Buy it, read it, enjoy it.

Format: Paperback
The first copy I had I loaned to a fellow researcher and never got it back. I had to buy another, but I would not trade this copy for anything. I had it signed at last years Ohio Bigfoot conference where Loren Coleman gave a talk.
The book is excellent and is one of the top on my list. It gives me more information on what took place during the Slick era than what Peter Byrne told me, which wasn't too much.
I hear there may be an update issued soon. Buy it! You won't regret it if you are interested in some of the history surrounding the quest of the Yeti. Good job Loren!!!
