I experienced my own Bigfoot sighting years ago and even have a report filed on-line with the BFRO.net - Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization. So I am a believer. What I loved about this book was the revealing insight into the behavior and mindset of these creatures as experienced by these habituators. I have read extensively about Bigfoot. This is the first to provide an on-going account of established relationships rather than numerous reports of split-second sightings with little detail into their behavior. I like the premise also. It gave me a glimpse of HOW they exist in relation to humans not WHETHER they exist. This book is not for the skeptics since they are looking for proof positive, not 5 families' accounts of peculiar, sometimes child-like behavior, inconsistent, and on-going experiences with Bigfoot. I learned a great deal. For the skeptics, you might be interested in checking out the BFRO. The home page is a wealth of information; there are almost 4,000 sighting reports listed by state and then county and a discussion board. It is a very professional and creditable organization with frequent expeditions into the "hot spots" of numerous sightings all over the U.S. The on-line expedition reports are amazing. The BFRO will not publish a report unless the eyewitness has been investigated by a BFRO investigator.

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 received this book as a Christmas present, and was excited by the premise. After reading it, I'm somewhat disappointed though. While it never tried to be a scientific review, the book falls short in my opinion. It relys entirely on heresay and first person reports from the families involved in the habituated areas. That's not always a bad thing, but I would have liked to have heard some third party reports as well, in order to help document or substantiate these families claims.

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.

In this incredible book Christopher Noel takes us to the edge of reality and then a few steps beyond (into the woods!). Brief sightings of a hairy upright beast have been reported for hundreds of years in all parts of North America. The Indians, a people much more in tune to their environment, know and respect what is known to most as Bigfoot. Its because over time Native American tribes learned to leave the beast alone and respect it, its not a threat to them. Modern Americans sometimes find themselves face to face with one of these creatures for a brief moment, one they will remember for the rest of their lives.

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.

Having long held an interest in the subject, I was somewhat disappointed in what I hoped could have been a true compendium of chronicled Sasquatch Habitation. What I got was a narration more similar to the sighting and contact reports from any one of the many "Bigfoot" web sites.
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
