To the author, I really appreciate your time out in the field with these habituators. Your book is very concise and well organized. I look forward to your next book.
I also felt that the author repeated the descriptions of the same type of incidents too much. (Ok, so the husband got pine cones thrown at him every time he mowed the lawn. I get it. Why did you have to mention it two more times?)
Another issue I had is the lack of any photographs, sketches, or maps related to the topic. One of the woman involved in the habituations claims to have video and photographic evidence that will make the Patterson-Gimlin film look like a cartoon. Great! Let's see it! Oh, she's trying to sell the film rights to it? Ok, how's about some lesser snapshots then? Nothing? Really? Ok, how's about some photos of the stick structures then? No? Maybe an eyewitness sketch on what the creatures look like? Still Nothing? JEEZ!
One item I did like was the inclusion of various old time newspaper reports at the beginning of the chapters. While these are not related to the specific reports used in the book, they do show a historical viewpoint and are often humerous. (Let's just say that reporters back then didn't have to worry about being politically correct and also liked to insert their own opinions into the stories.)
To summarize, I feel that this is an ok read, but I suspect that there are better books on the topic available. Try one of the others first.
This book is not about chance sightings. This book is about people who live in wooded areas and have a population of Bigfoot as neighbors. Christopher brings us accounts from several individuals in different parts of the U.S. who have come to realize that Bigfoot is real. And their interactions make for a book that is a real page turner, didn't want to put it down. The behavior exhibited by all the Bigfoot are of extreme shyness. This explains the lack of physical evidence. And they seem to pose no threat to us humans. Noel wrote the book to show the world how easy (and wonderful)it is to have Bigfoot as your neighbor. Most regard the ones that live close as part of the family. His reason for writing the book is because someday Bigfoot will be proven real and these stories may help in getting laws passed to protect them. Its a wonderful book and the accounts truly are fascinating. Its like no Bigfoot book I am aware of and well written. Highly recommend to anyone interested in Bigfoot and the outdoors.
I sprung for the whole deal and got the accompanying CD that is an option.The stills, with the exception of those from a man from Kansas seem obviously "shopped" and unauthentic. The man from Kansas on the other hand, is doing and I think has done what could be done no other way. And that is to use long distance photography to capture the sasquatch on film.
Please understand. I'm not pronouncing judgment on the author's veracity.I do not know him. But I do think that it is possible for well meaning, rational people, to want to believe so bad that objectivity gets clouded.
I feel a particle of truth in every account in the book. But I also feel much exaggeration as well. There are no great revelations or provable events in this book. In no tiny way will any skeptic be swayed from anything in this book.
Overall it was kind of high priced for the same basic thing you can get for free on the web
