Bigfoot: A New Book

Just published is this new book from Chelsea House: Bigfoot, Yeti and Other Ape-Men. As the publisher's blurb states:

"Taller than a human, smellier than a skunk, and stronger than a bear, the hairy creature known as Bigfoot, or Sasquatch, has been reported for centuries. Though Bigfoot has been encountered mostly in North America, similar unknown primates are said to dwell in Asia, India, and Tibet, where they are called Yeti. Other reports of wild ape-men in Russia, South America, and many other areas suggest that different types of unknown ape-men exist in a wide variety of locations worldwide. Bigfoot, Yeti, and Other Ape-Men recounts historical and modern cases and sightings of mysterious creatures from various cultures around the world. Although many claims about Bigfoot and similar creatures are backed by scientific evidence of some kind, no definitive proof of their existence has yet been discovered."

Chapters in the book include: The Arrival of Bigfoot; The Classic Cases; Wild Ape-men Across the World; Sasquatch Science; and Famous Hoaxes.
