Publisher Comments:

andlt;Bandgt;For years, scientists and researchers have studied, speculated about, and searched for an enigmatic creature that is legendary in the annals of American folklore. Now, learn the truth about... andlt;/Bandgt; andlt;BRandgt; andlt;Bandgt;BIGFOOT!andlt;/Bandgt; andlt;BRandgt; In this fascinating and comprehensive look at the fact, fiction, and fable of the North American "Sasquatch," award-winning author Loren Coleman takes readers on a journey into America's biggest mystery — could an unrecognized "ape" be living in our midst? Drawing on over forty years of investigations, interviews, and fieldwork on these incredible beasts, Coleman explores the modern debates about these powerful, ape-like creatures, why they have remained a mystery for so long, and what we can learn about ourselves from these animals, our nearest cousins! andlt;BRandgt; From reports of Bigfoot's existence found in ancient Native American traditions, to the controversial Patterson-Gimlin film of a Bigfoot in the wild, to today's Internet sites that record the sightings almost as soon as they occur, Coleman uncovers the past, explains the present, and considers the future of one of the greatest unsolved mysteries in the natural world.

Synopsis:

Readers are invited to examine the evidence for Bigfoot and take a journey into the realm of crytozoology, or hidden animals, with the #1 author in the field of Bigfoot study, Loren Coleman.
