Thomas Steenburg has had a keen interest in the Sasquatch mystery since he was a small child growing up in the 1960s. Studying everything he could find on the subject only made him more determined to follow up and to find an answer. He spent 7 years serving Queen and country with the first Battalion Princess Patrica's Canadian Light Infantry, P.P.C.L.I., and spent all of his spare time in the wilderness areas of Alberta and British Columbia, as well as the Pacific Northwest of the United States following up on alleged sighting reports. An outdoorsman he has spent countless days searching for the hard-physical evidence either to prove or disprove the existence of the Sasquatch. His real investigations started in 1978 and have gone on for 40 years. He has authored three books on the subject and has co-authored two others. Steenburg is considered one of the last of the 'old guards' in the field, having been friends and done work with many of the pioneers in the subject of Cryptozoology. He has been seen and heard on many film and radio documentaries and is still as driven now as he was at the beginning to find an answer one way or the other.
Here's another keeper for any bigfoot buff. Steenberg has several
books out on the sasquatch phenomenon. The nice part of his books
is that he sticks to the areas he knows - Alberta, Canada. He does
a great job in his retelling and 'research' of
sightings/footprints. He covers many fresh stories and tends to
stay away from the well known ones and U.S. occurrences. Steenberg
spends alot of time travelling and produces some good interviews.
Easy and quick to read and pretty enjoyable because you aren't
getting rehashing of all the popular stories (Bauman, Ape Canyon,
Patterson/Gimlin, etc). These deal with the more private citizens
that just happened to have witnessed something out of the ordinary.
For a good coverage of Western Canada, pick up Steenberg's books
and "Raincoast Sasquatch" by Robert Alley and you'll have some
excellent reports thoroughly covering this region. -- R. Howell on

This hard to find book is great addition to any Sasquatch book collection, Thomas interviews numerous witnesses and places their verbatim responses with narrative which provides insight not only into the witness's point of view but also Thomas's train of thought. Thomas also takes a skeptical and analytical approach to each sighting which helps to keep you grounded, he guides you through each sighting and allows you to make your own decision on each occurrence. This book also includes the incredible multiple witness sighting at Crandall Lake in Waterton Lakes National Park Alberta! If you do not currently own this book and you are an enthusiast then you need to get this book! -- Big "E" on Feb. 12 2015
