Very handy for the Bigfoot-buff
on October 13, 2006
Meet the Sasquatch is something as unusual as a well-written, informative, and serious book about the Bigfoot/Sasquatch phenomenon, filled with both photographs and illustrations, most of them in color. In a way, think of this book as a Greatest Hits collection of everything regarding that allusive primate which is said to roam the American landscape.
It's a book larger than your standard paperback, but that's fortunate, considering all the photographs and illustrations. All three authors are experienced and recognized Bigfoot researchers, and the book is based on a Bigfoot exhibit put on display at Vancouver Museum during the summer of 2004.
If you choose to purchase this book - and anyone with a serious interest shouldn't hesitate for a second to do so - you'll be treated with, among other things, the many plaster casts made from footprints over the years, an extremely thorough analysis of the Patterson/Gimlin movie shot at Bluff Creek, California, reconstructions made by anthropologists of what the body of a Bigfoot might look like, introductions to some of the top names in contemporary Bigfoot research together with some of the pioneers, how this creature has been portrayed in myths and legends among the native Americans, and much more.
And that's pretty much all I can say about Meet the Sasquatch. If you find the subject fascinating I cannot tell you any reason as for why you shouldn't purchase this book.
