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.
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.
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.
