John Napier gives the legend of Bigfoot a going-over in this well-written book. Eric Shipton, on Mt Everest photographed a huge footprint in the snow - was it really the abominable snowman of mythic proportions? Were the accounts of the Yeti sightings in the Himalayas from the 1800s up to the 1970 Annapurna expedition credible? What of the sightings of the Sasquatch, the man monster of the Pacific Northwest in Canada - in 1924 a lumberjack claimed he was kidnapped by one for observation! There is also the myth of the Minnesota Iceman, a man-ape frozen in a block of ice - an eminent scientist was convinced of his identity in 1968. This book is a wealth of evidence, verbal and visual, with Napier's thorough coverage, and wit, and some skepticism combined with scientific rigor. This is indispensable reading for anyone who has ever debated the existence of the Sasquatch and other creatures, or anyone who thinks they might have had a glimpse of one, or anyone who jas just wondered - what is in those woods an mountaintops? Are there ape-men amongst us? (Are we afraid to find out?) If you go down in the woods today, best take this book with you - at the very least you can throw it any strange wildlife that tries to menace you.
