This sasquatch book is a rather large collection of stories, anecdotes, and reports of sightings and encounters with purported sasqautch/bigfoot creatures. The author starts out recounting her grandmother's repeating encounters over the years before settling into a lengthy presentation of a wide variety of sightings and reports from the Pacific Northwest. The classics are covered however there are a pile of fresh stories also. Some I may not have included as they really started having that 'hippy-all-is-peaceful-and-a-miracle' feel to them but that's up to the reader. I found a couple of the stories hard to accept and may not have included them either (a few overlap the hippy feeling stories). All-in-all though, a pretty good selection of stories covering a lengthy time period.
The author then moves on to a section about higher profile people/investigators of the bigfoot phenomenon. There's a general format of questions she asks and there are certainly distinct personalites from the subjects. These range from those actually trying to do research or honest reporting like Meldrum, Green, Steenburg, Rosa, Fahrenbach, and Fries. Then there are those looking to cash in on it and self-promote like Ray Crowe and Tom Biscardi (my opinion only) that lack any real conviction other than the noteriety that may come with finding one of these creatures. Oh and then there's Robert Morgan who claims to be a viable researcher but is little more than a self promoter and arrogant nutjob (again my opinion only). This section almost makes me want to detract a point in rating because the author seems to be quite supportive of these three men in particular but that is her choice and I certainly can't say she would be wrong about it, afterall, who am I to say who is right or wrong.
Next is another section of generalized sightings, I guess separated from the rest because maybe the author didn't interview them directly. Following is a simplified "need to know" guide regarding what to look for while out in the woods, some sasquatch history, and Native artifacts. Rounding out the book is a kind of sightseer guide to locations with tourist attractions for bigfoot ranging from Willow Creek's Bigfoot Days and other places you can find bigfoot carvings and the like. I am a little befuddled that there is no mention of the Happy Camp region which is just 90 miles north of Willow Creek and contains a giant bigfoot sculpture, a bigfoot statue outside the post office, and holds it's Bigfoot Jamboree the same weekend as Willow Creek's Bigfoot Days. Happy Camp was also the locale Java Bob's bigfoot cafe (maybe the bad Biscardi agreement causes a lack of mentioning).
Anyway, as a bigfoot book, you should have it in your collection as you are presented with a vast amount of fresh stories you may have never heard of before.
