The Hoopa Project is certainly a large step in the correct direction. This slim book is a credit to the endeavor, and should be read as a practical how-to by any serious investigator. It also contains a wealth of information for anyone else interested in learning about Bigfoot/Sasquatch and the continuing search for proof of its existence.
Mr. Paulides has forged new investigative ground.
He is not a scientist and does not pretend to be. Instead, as a former police investigator, he has created an exemplary template for interviewing even reluctant witnesses and for extracting from them the most useful information possible, including rather startling forensic drawings supplied by Mr. Harvey Pratt.
The book is riveting reading, consisting of one interview after another (with photos of each witness & the forensic sketches that go with their sightings). The writing style is dry, no-nonsense, and has some characteristics in common with lab reports: a methodical, repeatable approach to extracting information. Credibility is given top billing, and there are no bells or whistles.
I was pleased to see that since this research was done in and around a Native American reservation and tribal holdings every effort was made to remain respectful of witnesses and their culture.
There is absolutely no sensationalization herein. It clearly was a relief to witnesses who otherwise feared ridicule and this adds greatly to the serious tone of the book.
It is greatly to Mr. Paulides's credit that his interest in the animal appears to stem from the wish to protect it with legislation--rather than to exploit it.Read more ›
While it does get a bit dry in some spaces, overall, it is an informative documentation of the purported creatures and their occurances within a selected region. The sketches are developed between Pratt and the many of the witnesses so there is a nice supply of new renderings based on the witnesses. Paulides also indicates he will be doing more such regional project books in the future. This book is excellent coverage for a small region and includes some cultural importance of bigfoot to the Hoopa Reservation and people.
I've recently just ordered Dave's other books from the NA Bigfoot Search website, and I cannot wait until they arrive! Amazon has little availability of his other books at the time of this writing (May 2012). They are Tribal Bigfoot, The Track Record: A Bigfoot Encyclopedia, and the two "Missing 411" books - east and west coast editions.
