There are plenty of Bigfoot books out there but finding them all in one place has never been this easy. From compilations of different creatures to books solely about Bigfoot, you will find them all here both in paperback and digital form.
The Historical Bigfoot covers sightings of Wild Men, Gorillas, Yahoos, and What-Is-It's, from the early 1800s to the 1940s. Before the term "Bigfoot" was coined to signify an unknown species of North American primate, sightings of towering bipedal apes were reported throughout the continent, but called a variety of names. This book compiles and sorts the most significant sightings, but also provides a look at hoaxes, misidentifications, and the influential perspective of newspaper editors as they dealt with reports of a strange hairy manlike ape.
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.

A TRUCKER IN FLORIDA GETS PICKED UP BY BIGFOOT:I saw this thing come up to the door of the cab. This thing was tall, covered with darkish hair. It stuck its face right into the cab. When the thing leaned in, its body brushed against my feet. That's how close we were. These two huge hands grabbed my legs. I was dragged out of the truck. The thing just tucked me under one of his arms like I was a rag doll. My head was pushed down into that fur, and I almost gagged from the stench. With me under his arm, he walked around to the front of the truck. He moved in front of the lights and looked at me. It was as if he was inspecting me and deciding whether to keep me or throw me away. I knew I was in bad trouble if he dragged me off. I didn't know what he wanted with me. I just knew I wanted out of there.(from Chapter 4)
