In this landmark work on a subject too often dismissed as paranormal or disreputable, Jeffrey Meldrum gives us the first book on Sasquatch to be written by a scientist with impeccable academic credentials. He gives an objective look at the facts in a field mined with hoaxes and sensationalism. Meldrum reports on the work of a team of experts from a wide variety of fields who were assembled to examine the evidence for a large, yet undiscovered, North American primate. He reviews the long history of this mystery--which long predates the "Bigfoot" flap of the late fifties--and explains all the scientific pros and cons in a clear and accessible style, amplified by over 150 illustrations. Anyone who has pondered the mysteries of human evolution will be fascinated and eager to join Dr. Meldrum in drawing their own conclusion.
From the most ancient times of human existence, stories of strange man-animals have been passed down in legends and myth. Thses stories have been told in all parts of the world, and accounts from around the globe are all remarkably similar. How could such stories be created, and why? Could the collective unconscious memory of humanity hold within it lurking shadows of creatures we once knew? Creatures that today exist only as legend and myth-but could there be more-is there more? Fossil records firmly establish that once there did exist a giant ape-like creature called Gigantopithecus. Scientists have determined that this ape-like creature was between 10 and 12 feet in height and weighed approximately 1,200 pounds. This creature actually did exist, but no one really knows much more about it other than its height and weight, and no one knows anything about its bahavioral characteristcs. Could it have been the ancestor to the Sasquatch of today? No one really knows-nor does it really matter. The simple fact that such creatures did exist at one time makes the possibility of ape-like giants existing today real. "Notes From the Field, Tracking North America's Sasquatch" is a study into this issue. It traverses the possibilities of fossil records and the legends of early man, to the 300 years of personal reports of individuals encountering flesh and blood creatures. This study examines the brief history of the issues as well as the original pioneers from whom became "bigfoot" a household word, and this study looks at recent field discoveries in an attempt to answer the most common "frequently asked questions." For any and all Bigfoot enthusiasts, "Notes From the Field, Tracking North America's sasquatch" is an excellent overview of the issues, beginning with the earliest accounts and moving through recent investigations and the results of recent expeditions.
