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.
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.
would recommend for the new believer. we are learning much more about these secretive creatures, there habits, there migratory routs,as more people extend into there home ground usually in un accessible areas of forest,back country areas, high sierrias, pacific coastal areas and eastern parts of the united states as well as Canada. Now proven to have human DNA GENITICS and other scientist still steer away from the proven.
As with many others, I had my own encounter. They were curious about me as we are of them.
# 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.
