This book will give you all the elements to challenge your skeptic friends! "Cryptozoology, meaning the study of hidden animals, is a peculiar juncture point between science and myth. Its purpose is to determine the reality behind rumors of animal species, called cryptids, whose existence has not yet been established by the scientific community. Cryptids can range from legendary creatures too fanciful for anyone to take them seriously (griffins, dragons, etc.), to realistic depictions of plausible unknown animal species by a local population, some of which turned out to be true (gorilla, okapi, or more recently saola, to name a few). In the collective unconscious, Bigfoot walks a thin line between the two. Stories of ape-like wild men living in secluded mountains and forests have been running around every corner of the earth for thousands of years, and North America is no exception.

Sorting out fiction from facts, reviewing with precision but in simple, understandable terms the evidence that has been gathered throughout the decades, this book sums up with great efficienty the current state of things regarding Bigfoot research. If you have ever been curious about the mysterious, unexplained facets of the world, you will be amazed to see that in this case, as in many, the truth is stranger than fiction.

    As someone who has long been fascinated by cryptozoology, I was intrigued by this work which addresses arguments in favor of the existence of Bigfoot. The author clearly did his research, drawing on centuries-old sightings, testimonials, physical evidence, and most interesting for me--the famed Patterson-Gimlin film, which is examined in detail. Throughout, facts are presented in a concise and understandable manner and the book is ordered in such a way that by the time you reach the final chapte As someone who has long been fascinated by cryptozoology, I was intrigued by this work which addresses arguments in favor of the existence of Bigfoot.

Throughout, facts are presented in a concise and understandable manner and the book is ordered in such a way that by the time you reach the final chapter (Conclusions) the reader has been presented with a strong argument for the existence of these ape-like creatures that have long eluded man. The writing is polished and case arguments presented vividly. Whether you are a believer in Sasquatch or someone fascinated by the legend, you will find Mr. Dale's work a compelling read!

    ***Received a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review*** This book is a good introduction into the world of Bigfoot. It is geared toward those who are new to the subject matter; the information presented is very basic—just enough to pique the interest of the novice. The author's passion for the possibility of the existence of Bigfoot comes through in this work and it is refreshing that he admits his bias upfront.

It is geared toward those who are new to the subject matter; the information presented is very basic—just enough to pique the interest of the novice. The author's passion for the possibility of the existence of Bigfoot comes through in this work and it is refreshing that he admits his bias upfront. I have to take issue with the author in his assessment of the Paterson-Gimlin film. Let me say upfront, that my position is that film is more likely than not authentic. I think it is probably real, but that is as far as I will go. The footage is far from being any sort of smoking gun and as far as evidence goes, it is shaky at best. It is interesting and it might be real, but it is far from conclusive. The author does a great job presenting the pro side of the argument, but does not do justice the opposing side of the debate. This is unfortunate as there is ample literature available against the film being genuine. Unfortunately, only Bob Gimlin the late Roger Patterson know if the footage is authentic. Though the film is still the gold standard for Bigfoot footage over five decades later, it is hardly the compelling evidence that the author would have us believe. After all, the father of cryptozoology, Bernard Heuvelmans, believed the film was fake—that has to count for something. The other issue I have is the length of the book—26 pages. I understand that author intended the book to be a brief introduction to the topic, but even if it were triple the size—which would have been easy for the author to do in a Bigfoot evidence book!—it would still be a very short book and a quick read. It is the 26-page length of the book that kept me from giving it four stars. Overall I recommend this book to anyone new to the subject that would like a quick introduction into Bigfoot evidence. I would also like to see more from the author in the future, but hopefully this time in more of a "book length" work.

    Excellent Very well written primer for folks interested in Bigfoot. Only problem is its very short. It could have been (maybe was) a term paper. Excellent information and primer on the big guy

    Nothing new I was hoping for more facts. Instead I got the same old stuff. Students for bigfoot's existence was weak at best. Nothing new I was hoping for more facts. Instead I got the same old stuff. Students for bigfoot's existence was weak at best.

    Hit the Main Points I doubt this boot would convince a skeptic,but it would make the argument more intense! A good platform to launch further research.

    Facts This book is full of Known facts. Nothing new about any of it. Just stuck to the facts. Nothing that I didn’t already know.
