Book Description

22 April 2003
Bigfoot - the name used for any large, hairy biped reported in every state of the United States and every Canadian province - has long baffled casual tourists and experienced scientists. Now readers can examine the evidence for this elusive creature and take a journey into the realm of crytozoology, or hidden animals, with the number one authority in the field. Readers will travel with Coleman through his forty years of studying, examining, and fieldwork on these incredible beasts. From ancient native traditions to today's Internet databases that record sightings almost the instant they occur, learn how these creatures can exist in our midst, when there have been sightings, and what kind of controversies have arisen. As the popularity steadily grows for creatures and phenomena of the unknown, Coleman's timely work is a seminal piece.

Author Loren Coleman covers the physical aspect of the search for Bigfoot in this clear, comprehensive introduction to the topic. Coleman distils a lifetime's work into a readable and engaging summary of all the milestones in the history of this subject; the cultural influence, major sightings and flaps, that famous footage and the key players in the field over the last 50 years. He also introduces other elements that readers may not be aware of such as the evidence for multiple hominids (and / or hominoids) geographically distributed across North America and how the personalities involved shaped the story behind the stories.
It is to Coleman's credit that he sets his own position as a firm believer out early but never pushes this onto the reader. He spends time discussing hoaxes, mistakes and negative influences on cryptozoology as he presents the evidence and acknowledges the challenges faced with moving the issue forward. This objective style probably wont persuade anyone who didn't believe before picking this book up (I am still in the "not convinced yet" camp, which is an easy position to be from my armchair in England), but it moves the discussion more into the mainstream and brings credibility to the search for evidence.
Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not before time.... 26 April 2003
It was about time that Cryptozoology author and investigator Loren Coleman sat down and wrote a complete book about Bigfoot, and here it is !
Coleman has researched the subject well, and as a result, he has produced a detailed, well written book on the subject based on facts (as well as a little speculation), and even broaches the controversial subject of 'Sex and the Single Sasquatch' with a little humour.
This is a great book, and if you have the slightest interest in the subject, then this book should be added to your colelction without delay.

4.0 out of 5 stars QUITE A SERIOUS WORK................. 15 May 2010
By Saturnicus VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Loren Coleman has written a serious work in this little book. It is crammed full of facts about the American apes and he has approached his subject as one who has spent his entire life in the study and quest for these creatures. A firm believer himself, however, he does not ram his convictions down his reader's throat. He gives us the facts and also the arguments against - given the large amount of hoaxes and ridicule he and other serious men of science have been subjected to when investigating this contravertial subject. The Russians do not treat this subject of homanids in Siberia with levity, but treat the subject seriously. In America it seems to offer great oportunites for commercial enterprise.
Let's be honest about it, there is no reason why a vast country like the USA should not have its own species of apes - a cross between the apes we are all aquainted with and humans. I found his nchapter of the Skunk ape of Florida particularly interesting - a species of Orangutang. There is no reason why their ancestors have not been released into the wild some years ago, perhaps from a zoo that went bust during the depression or something such like.
All in all, I enjoyed this book and did not lose interest in it. It was not over the top or sensationalist, but is a serious starting point for anyone with a genuine interest in this subject who does not regard it as a source of amusement.
