By William R. Hancock on May 14, 2005
Format: Paperback
I have a had strange relationship with this book. Years ago, back in the 1970s, I was immersed in Bigfoot/Sasquatch material.

I was into Ivan Sanderson and John Green, John Napier and Rene Dahinden, and anyone else into "Sasquatchology". Even searched out an old edition of Theodore Roosevelt's "The Wilderness Hunter" at the University of South Carolina's Thomas Cooper Library to read the "Ghost Story" chapter, which is the famed "Baumann Recollection" of trappers attacked by a bipedal "whatsit" in Idaho's Salmon River Country circa the 1840s. Wanted to read the story as Roosevelt wrote it, and a chiller it is.

Throughout all this period of bigfoot fascination, however, I always stayed, as I thought, "grounded in reality". This was some sort of primeval survival, I believed. This is an ape-man.

This is a pithecanthropus or a gigantopithecus or some relative to one of these. It is smart and it lives in the forests and it avoids humans as much as possible. Everything I gleaned from anecdotes about Ape Canyon, Albert Ostman, the Ruby Creek sightings, William Roe and others convinced me we were dealing with a biological creature here. (And, in MOST...but not ALL...cases, still do).

Then one day I spied on a bookshelf a slender little paperback volume with a greenish "impressionistic' cover that announced itself as "Bigfoot", by B. Ann Slate & Alan Berry. I thought, "Alriiiight!" and made the purchase. Took it home and began reading it and started scratching my head. Thought "Whaaaaat?". Paranormal bigfeet? Interdimensional manifestations? Three-toed sasquatches? Invisible ape-men? My "rational" self recoiled at such notions as reported therein.

I thought "This is utter crap" Complete rubbish" and pitched the book into a box somewhere.

When I read Slate and Berry's book in 1976, it finally helped the Bigfoot phenomenon "make sense" within my mind. The psychic/interdimensional component of this phenomenon has been sadly overlooked since the 1970's and even then, no book summarizes this approach better than B.Ann Slate and Alan Berry's own look into the subject. I would urge all researchers to spare no resources in finding this book. No library can be said to be truly complete without it.

First off, this book gave me the willies. It has a lot of information on the subject especially the events that took place near the Sierra's in the late 60s early 70s, but it relates the information in a well crafted narrative with atmosphere. Good at presenting possible supernatural/extradimensional aspect of sasquatch phenomena

As a child in the 70s I lived near where some of these events happened. This book is a fun trip down memory lane.

One of the authors, Mr Berry, wrote for the newspaper in my adopted home town in far northern California. I wish I had known he wrote this book while he was still alive!

Alan Berry is a investigative reporter from the San Francisco Bay Area. He has also served as an aid to the California legislature. This man did not gain those positions without integrity. And you understand that Berry is not some crackpot immediately upon setting into the book. Berry's story starts in the California Sierra, with an invitation from a group of hunters, to meet a family of creatures that have been regularly visiting their campsite. Berry completes the long hike in to the remote sight armed with tape recorder and camera. The recordings that were made during his first trip are proof positive of Sasquatch's existence! (Sound recordings are available on CD) This is the research book that all others should be measured against...

This is one of the best Bigfoot books I've read to date. Loaded with interesting facts & accounts of eye-to-eye contact with the woodland creatures called Bigfoot. Published in 1976 there have been many sightings since then. This book details reports of encounters with hairy giants, UFOs & other aspects of the "psychic" Sasquatch, along with 8 pages of photos.

For the Bigfoot fan it's a great addition to your library.

This book is a fascinating read to be sure but it's a book that paints Bigfoot as more of a psychic creature and it does not really add much to the discussion in terms of zoology or bigfoot as a possible cryptid. Nevertheless it's a can't-put-down series of accounts from the high deserts of southern California to the Northwest U.S. Throughout the book, there are accounts of Bigfoot messing with people's minds (Terror in a Mountain Resort is one outstanding example) as well as mysterious underground noises and lights where there should be no such phenomena. I do think it's one of the all time classic Bigfoot books but the approach is very 1970s paranormal. Warning: do not read alone on a dark night. It is VERY creepy in places.

Various bigfoot sightings are included, along with bizarre psychological phenomena, unusual lights in the sky and choking, sulphurous smells. The authors include the encounter described by Bertold Schwarz in a 1974 issue of Flying Saucer Review, "Berserk: A UFO-Creature Encounter," where a UFO was observed accompanied by two ape-like creatures that had large, yellowish-green eyes that appeared to glow. Elsewhere, dogs are mysteriously torn apart, strange subterranean noises are heard in Indian reservations, or in the wilderness (e.g. an area 434 miles of Montreal). Round a camp fire, some bigfoot trackes experience alien, exterior thoughts superimposed on their own. Chapter titles might give an idea what to expect: Rock Giants in the Sierra, Dialogue with Bigfoot, Pursuers or the Pursued?, Terror in a Mountain Resort, The Psychic Elements, Astounding Incidents, A Conversation with Bigfoot?, UFO Bigfoot Creatures: The Pennsylvania Effect, What Do You Do About a Monster?, The Coincidence Factor, Nature of the Quest: A Serious Game, Appendix A: The Minaret Skull (details of what happened when an apparent bigfoot skull fragment was sent to the Department of Archaeology at UCLA),Appendix B: The Bigfoot Tapes (analysis of audio recordings). It's a pacey, gripping book that I read in one sitting.
