If you are interested in bigfoot at all; this book should be in your library. When John Green passed away earlier this year, among other things, I especially remembered this book. Released in the late 1970's, I believe that it was the first in depth presentation of evidence of sasquatch outside of the Pacific Northwest. Mr. Green did his best to cover North America. Being from Florida, I had heard a couple stories of what some locals call "The Skunk Ape," but Green had a number of reports. I think Florida (At that time) was the fourth state with the most accounts of possible or likely bigfoot encounters, which was quite surprising. But Green had accounts from almost all of the continental U.S. and some from Canada. The idea that sasquatch might be anywhere where there is the appropriate environment is one of the primary lessons of this book. This opened up a whole new line of thinking on the subject. With his background as a newspaper publisher, he put together a remarkable collection of reports in the pre-computer age, so there was a lot of work involved. He takes a very serious and newspaper-like approach to the subject from many angles - Essentially giving mostly the facts as he was able to gather them. He also covered a wide range of reported bigfoot activity and gives the reader a good look into how they seem to behave without a too much editorializing. As I said; it's mostly loaded with facts. It's a well thought-out book and a well written book that is easy to follow and enjoyable to read. Again; if you are interested in bigfoot, then this book is one that you should have. Its relevance on the subject has not been lessened with the passage of time.

I bought this book back in late-January 2004 from an ebay auction and read it voraciously. It is THE bible of all books on the subject. The book boasts information on sightings from all over the United States and western Canada, with several onsite interviews with witnesses conducted by Green himself. Topics covered range from the Patterson/Gimlin film, to classic Sasquatch stories, to creatures around the world, to Indian legends, to mysteries set in stone, to various other aspects of the Sasquatch mystery. At 492 pages, this book is a marathon read, but highly recommended to all who are interested.
