BIGFOOT BOOK: The Encyclopedia of Sasquatch, Yeti, and Cryptid Primates
Bipedal primates appear in folklore, legends, and eyewitness accounts in every state of the union and many places around the world. The fascination with the man-beast is stronger than ever in today's pop culture. Exploring the history, movies, and literature, the conspiracy theorizing, and the world of the supernatural, this is a comprehensive resource to the man-beast. It covers 400 years of folklore, mythology, history, and pop culture, including Native American lore, the "wild men" reports in the pages of nineteenth century era American newspapers. Various documentaries and reality television shows have all superficially tackled the subject, but Redfern presents a truly encyclopedic look at cryptid primates. It is a richly researched reference, overflowing with fascinating information to make readers think--and reconsider their next camping trip. 8X10 P/B, 400 pp., Illus.
