Jeff Taylor was an ordinary boy growing up in the small town of Babble Creek, North Carolina, until one night his life was changed forever when a sasquatch brutally murdered his family. Taylor fled the town, hoping to leave the painful memory behind. Years later, after two tours of duty in the Iraq War, he's back in Babble Creek seeking vengeance. Taylor's lust for the blood of the monster that slew his family sets in motion a series of events that soon has the entire town fighting for its life as a tribe of sasquatches descend from the forests and hills into Babble Creek to declare war upon its citizens. Babble Creek is about to find out Bigfoot is very real and there's more than one of the creatures that want to fill the streets with blood.

Was it really a Bigfoot, as many have insisted? OR something else? You be the judge. We just lay the information on the table and educate the reader as to what is possible and what is probably and what is very unlikely. In fact, two cases presented in this -must have Bigfoot book have proven to be...beyond all doubt... hoaxes. You will also find key words underlined such as "primate" and "controversial" which have a full definition in the glossary. The book has a very useful index, a section frequently asked questions (FAQs), a map of where the discussed incidents took place, photo credits and beautiful full color illustrations. The writing gives you the details of the case but the illustrations takes you there from a visual point of view. Many of the cases have been investigated first hand by the author of the book. How many other Bigfoot authors can honestly make that claim?
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.
