Legendary … Lurking … Notorious Elusive Famous sightings, mythic folklore, and sensational hoaxes.

What are we to believe? Does a hulking, hairy, 800-pound, nine-foot-tall, elusive primate roam the woods and forests throughout North America—and the world? What should we make of the grainy videos and photos and the thousands of eyewitness reports? For skeptics and enthusiasts alike, The Bigfoot Book: The Encyclopedia of Sasquatch, Yeti, and Cryptid Primates explores and explains the mysterious beast’s history and its enigmatic existence in the present day.

Whether called Sasquatch, Yeti, Bigfoot, or something else, bipedal primates appear in folklore, legends, and eyewitness accounts in every state of the union and many places around the world. You’ll learn of hoaxes, witness the creation of myths, hear frightening personal accounts, and see the startling historical records. Documenting the facts, hearing witnesses out, and scrutinizing the evidence, The Bigfoot Book investigates the reality, the fiction, and the history, as well as the conspiracy theories, notorious frauds, the world of the supernatural, the television shows, movies, and literature, and everything to do with the celebrated ape-like creature.

With nearly 200 entries and 120 photographs, drawings, and illustrations, it covers 400 years of folklore, mythology, history, pop culture, scientific reports and findings, and much, much more. It covers everything from the Abominable Snowman to Zoological Society Revelations. This richly researched reference, overflowing with fascinating information, will make you think—and maybe even reconsider your next camping trip.
