Publisher's Summary

Bigfoot, Sasquatch, Yowie, Yeti...the idea that monstrous man-apes lurk in the remote forests and high mountain valleys of the world is an enduring and popular one. Hardly a week goes by without some report of a fresh encounter.

In 1793 the Boston Gazette reported a sighting of what the Cherokee call a "chickly cuddly" or "hairy man thing". In 1818 the Watchman recorded the visit of a "Wild Man of the Woods". Ever since, hundreds of eyewitness accounts of a giant, elusive beast that stands upright on its hind legs have come flooding in.

One creature was seen trying to catch a calf in a farmer's field; a group of them used rocks to pound the walls of a remote cabin. More recently, four teenagers in rural America were startled when a huge hairy creature landed on the roof of their car.

Bigfoot takes a fresh look at the man-apes reported to exist in North America, South America, Australia, the Himalayas and Central Asia. It examines historic sightings as well as up-to-date ones - and poses the crucial question: are they really out there?

Good, but not current. More Sasquatch 101.

Good, but FAR behind where the current evidence stands - both circumstantial and hard/direct. I feel the author didn't do much research for this book.

Good book, but...

The book is interesting, but the CONSTANT conversions from feet to centimeters or meters is extremely annoying and distracts from the stories a lot. To the point that, at times, it makes it difficult to listen to.

Annoyed The Crap Out of Me

Would you try another book from Rupert Matthews and/or Nick Landrum?

It starts out alright but every single time he says ANYTHING in relevance to a measurement, he says what it is also in metric. For example: "The creature was about 6 feet, 183 centimeters, talls and about 15 feet, 5 yards, away and crossed the clearing to other side which was 1,000 feet, 1/3 of a kilometer, away." I'm not kidding. I never wanted to punch an author right in the beak so bad in my life.

Bigfoot, by Rupert Matthews

I didd enjoy the book, but his concussions are not in my mind fact, as more fictional, these creature's are out there, his conclusion about the Yowie is totally wrong, this creature's are alive and wonder our bushland.
Many people and also soldiers have seen these Animals, over since the Aborigines they have written about them and hundreds of White people has seen and reported on them.
I wish people would do more research on the matter, before writing.
Cheers everyone.
