Bigfoot - the name used for any large, hairy biped reported in every state of the United States and every Canadian province - has long baffled casual tourists and experienced scientists. Now readers can examine the evidence for this elusive creature and take a journey into the realm of crytozoology, or hidden animals, with the number one author in the field of Bigfoot study, Loren Coleman. Readers will travel with Coleman during his forty-year study as he investigates, interviews and conducts fieldwork on these incredible beasts. From ancient Native traditions to today's Internet databases that record the sightings almost as soon as they occur. Find out how these creatures can exist in our midst, when there have been sightings, and what kind of controversies have been spurred. As Bigfoot hunting continues its rise in popularity, Coleman's work is a seminal piece.
