Detailed Product Description
New York, 1993, revised edition. 205 pp, b/w photos. New paperback.

An examination of the Sasquatch and Yeti phenomena, with data and evidence.

During the reign of the Sasquatch/Bigfoot mania from the 1960s to late 70s, there were the "Big 4" names in Sasquatch research: Grover Krantz, John Greene, Peter Byrne, and Rene Dahinden. This is Dahinden's book written with Don Hunter. It is obvious that Hunter wrote the book with Dahinden's input, and you can see the distinctive spots where Dahinden adds his flavor to it.

This is a prime book for someone that is generally interested in the Bigfoot phenomenon as Dahinden relates the classics, the less-than-classics, and a few minor other stories. Of the Big 4, Dahinden was probably the most in-the-field, his passion bordered on obsession and he notes in the book that it cost him his marriage. Dahinden was a no-nonsense researcher and he didn't hide it. Also he points out that he doesn't necessarily believe that Sasquatches exist so much as he was adamant about finding out the source of the massive amounts of footprints left in the Pacific Northwest and British Columbia.

The book itself covers all the classic stories of Jacko, Beck at Ape Canyon assault, the Ostman Kidnapping, the Baumann attack, Cripplefoot tracks, and Patterson's film. Dahinden/Hunter also cover the lesser known classics of Washington skier Carter's disappearance, the Chapmans of Ruby Creek, and William Roe's close up observation of a Bigfoot. He throws in a smattering of even lesser known sightings also. Dahinden also gives coverage of hoaxers Ivan Marx and Paul Freeman that always seemed to run into a Sasquatch no matter where they went. He also talks about the multiple failed 'expedition hunts' and his partnership and falling out with John Greene.

Overall, this is a great book for the mildly interested Bigfoot fan as it covers all the stories. For the avid follower, this book is a must even though it is dated to 1980s. You'll get the classics and more from one of the vital members of early Sasquatch investigation.
