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?

Really enjoyed it

It’s definitely one of the better big foot books I’ve read. The author actually lays out all the different beliefs for the existence of Big Foot without much prejudice until the end. Then he tells you his beliefs and why. I really enjoyed it as a skeptic and a believer because I am both.

Surprisingly good read!

During the quarantine I found myself with too much time on my hands and as such found myself unable to learn enough about Bigfoot...I’ve read and listened to a great deal of various content & media on this subject and was surprised to find a good amount of new info I had not already heard in this book. I also appreciated the author’s perspective on the subject as well as his writing style.

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.

Too Dry

The author seems to think he has to do a verbal conversion from feet to centimeters. It gets annoying very quickly. Let the listeners do their own conversations. Also, if you are going to read something like this, put some excitement in your voice. We are talking about a potentially dangerous creature.

Enough with the measurement conversions

As I did enjoy the stories, I did not enjoy the measurement conversions with every single story. It really took away from the book and became quite annoying. You may want to consider a redo less the conversions, use either one or the other to improve the review ratings.

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.

Well narrated and interesting.

Very well composed series of reports and evidence for hominid creatures around the world. I was expecting a lack of integrity but the author and narrator presented this very well

not many detailed encounters

Not essentially a bad book. its is a more scientific appraisal of the possibility of hominid apes on the planet. There are accounts but only very briefly explored

Well researched

Well researched and fascinating collection of accounts of encounters with mythical species. The author skillfully separates folklore from fact.

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.
