** Paperback edition **Bigfoot...Fact or Fiction? Read this book before you decide!From recent footprints to ghostly figures painted on stone centuries ago, Backyard Bigfoot presents startling evidence that the hairy creatures who lurk in our world's backcountry represent more than a figment of our collective imagination. Bigfoot expert Lisa A. Shiel lays out the evidence -- physical and folkloric, ancient and modern -- to prove that Bigfoot and its kin all over the world stand closer to us than we ever imagined.If you're a newcomer to the subject, you'll learn valuable facts as the author guides you through the mine field of theories, counter-theories, and assumptions about Bigfoot. Knowledgeable researchers will find a treasure trove of little-known evidence and usually taboo concepts. In perfect detail, Shiel lays out her singular and astonishing revelations about Bigfoot, gleaned from years of research -- both in the field and in the historical archives. Joining her odyssey, you'll explore:Stick signs, purposeful symbols created with sticks and other material;Mane braiding, where intricate braids appear in horses' manes overnight;Predominant Bigfoot theories, and why they don't fit the facts;UFO-Bigfoot connection details typically dismissed by academic pedagogues; andDistorted human history and how it affects our perceptions of the Bigfoot enigma.From human evolution to lost civilizations, from UFOs to ancient artwork, Shiel weaves disparate threads into one incredible yet thoroughly believable theoretical tapestry - and leaves you breathless.*****"A skillfully written combination of field observations, academic perspectives, and discussions of other paranormal mysteries." -- Thom Powell, author of The Locals: A Contemporary Investigation of the Bigfoot/Sasquatch Phenomenon"A unique, and intensely personal perspective on the Bigfoot controversy." -- Nick Redfern, author of On the Trail of the Saucer Spies"You may agree or not with her conclusions but you will be thoroughly entertained by the discussions." -- Andrew Grgurich, The Mining Journal (Marquette,Mich.)"Absolutely one of the best types of investigative reporting I've seen as Shiel compiles so much information into this one little book that you will read over and over again." -- Beverly Pechin, Reader Views
With pictures and stories the Bords present cases of encounters with Bigfoot. The Bigfoot story has moved from certainty of the creatures existence to claims of hoaxes, trickery, and outright lies and back again. Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin claim to have taken movies of Bigfoot; Ray Wallace s family shows wooden feet that they claim were used to start the whole Bigfoot story in 1958. Who do we believe?The Bords answer is nobody and everybody. The cases are presented without prejudice so you can make up your own mind. Sometimes it s easy, as with the Ray Wallace claims there are plenty of sightings before Ray Wallace was alive to make it clear he didn t start the whole thing. Other cases are a mystery. And that s all part of the fun.
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.
