Does a hulking, hairy, 800-pound, nine-foot-tall, elusive primate roam the woods and forests throughout North America—and the world? What should we make of the grainy videos and photos and the thousands of eyewitness reports? Audio-recordings exist purporting to be the creatures’ eerie chatter and bone-chilling screaming. Whether called Sasquatch, Yeti, Bigfoot, or something else, bipedal primates appear in folklore, legends, and eyewitness accounts in every state of the union and many places around the world. The fascination with the man-beast is stronger than ever in today’s pop culture. Exploring the history, movies, and literature, the conspiracy theorizing, and the world of the supernatural, The Encyclopedia of Sasquatch, Yeti and Cryptid Primates is a comprehensive resource to the man-beast.

What is Sasquatch? Thousands of people believe in it. Hundreds say they have seen it. But the mystery of Sasquatch has not been solved . . . Sasquatch, also known as Bigfoot, is a cryptid—a creature of cryptozoology. Cryptozoology is the study of creatures not recognized by traditional science, and it is the quest to understand things that cannot be proven via ordinary channels. Kelly Milner Halls interviews cryptozoologists, linguistics experts, anthropologists, biologists, and regular people like us who have seen, heard, or maybe stumbled across evidence leading them to believe that Sasquatch is real. Serious Sasquatch seekers are as skeptical as unbelievers. They are not out to collect great stories. They are out to put together facts. The difference is, they are willing to keep an open mind. Do you believe in Sasquatch?

Throughout our history, humans have been captivated by mythic beasts and legendary creatures. Tales of Bigfoot, the Yeti, and the Loch Ness monster are part of our collective experience. Now comes a book from two dedicated investigators that explores and elucidates the fascinating world of cryptozoology. Daniel Loxton and Donald R. Prothero have written an entertaining, educational, and definitive text on cryptids, presenting the arguments both for and against their existence and systematically challenging the pseudoscience that perpetuates their myths. After examining the nature of science and pseudoscience and their relation to cryptozoology, Loxton and Prothero take on Bigfoot; the Yeti, or Abominable Snowman, and its cross-cultural incarnations; the Loch Ness monster and its highly publicized sightings; the evolution of the Great Sea Serpent; and Mokele Mbembe, or the Congo dinosaur. They conclude with an analysis of the psychology behind the persistent belief in paranormal phenomena, identifying the major players in cryptozoology, discussing the character of its subculture, and considering the challenge it poses to clear and critical thinking in our increasingly complex world.

Many people across the world believe in an ape-like humanoid creature who is covered with hair and walks on two legs. Those who claim to have seen this creature generally say that he has reddish-brown hair, is approximately seven to 10 feet tall, has a conical-shaped head, emits a powerfully obnoxious stench, and has enormous, human-like feet. In the United States, this creature is known as the Sasquatch or Bigfoot. He is attested to in Native American myths and legends that speak of giants, as well as in eyewitness accounts that predate the birth of the country. Bigfoot has relatives all across the world. In the Himalayan countries of Nepal, Tibet, and Bhutan, the local people believe in and even revere a creature that they call the Yeti, known to many Westerners as the Abominable Snowman. Many Chinese believe in the Yeren, or Wild Man, who is said to inhabit mountainous areas of the country. The Yowie is attested to by the aborigines of Australia, and the Orang Pendek (or short man) is believed to live on the island of Sumatra in Indonesia. The fact that so many cultures attest to the existence of an ape-like bipedal humanoid who lives on the outskirts of society is seen by many as evidence that such a creature does, in fact, exist. Bigfoot is generally believed by the scientific community to be something known as a cryptid, or a legendary animal whose existence has not been proven. However, thousands of people every year claim to see the creature known as Bigfoot. The number of eyewitnesses grows each year as more and more people profess to have seen Bigfoot Some have presented photographic and video evidence of him, and some have even given hair, skin, and other DNA samples! Still, there is no consensus between the scientific community and Bigfoot eyewitnesses as to whether or not the creature actually does exist. If you are reading this, you are probably interested in Bigfoot and want to know more about the mysterious creature. Maybe you have had an eyewitness encounter with the beast yourself or want to visit an area known to be inhabited by Bigfoot in the hopes of seeing the elusive creature. You are not alone. People all over the world are searching for their own opportunity to see him. This book contains valuable, easy-to-understand information about the cryptid, including what he is and different theories - some more believable than others - that attempt to explain his existence. It talks about early Native American stories about Bigfoot as well as the role that he played in the people's spiritual life. From there, it discusses numerous Bigfoot sightings across the United States, including Alaska, as well as some in Canada. It also contains information about other cryptids, such as the Loch Ness monster, Yeti, and the giant squid. By the time you finish this book, you will have gained immense knowledge about the creature known as Bigfoot. If you are a sideline believer, unsure of whether or not he actually does exist, you will surely have come to your own opinion by the time you finish reading. Hopefully, this book will make a believer out of you. It may even lead you to seek out Bigfoot for yourself. Scroll to the top of the page and click Add To Cart to learn more
