Bigfoot, Sasquatch, Yowie, Yeti...the idea that monstrous man-apes lurk in the remote forests and high mountain valleys of the world is an enduring and popular one. Hardly a week goes by without some report of a fresh encounter.
In 1793 the Boston Gazette reported a sighting of what the Cherokee call a "chickly cuddly" or "hairy man thing". In 1818 the Watchman recorded the visit of a "Wild Man of the Woods". Ever since, hundreds of eyewitness accounts of a giant, elusive beast that stands upright on its hind legs have come flooding in.
One creature was seen trying to catch a calf in a farmer's field; a group of them used rocks to pound the walls of a remote cabin. More recently, four teenagers in rural America were startled when a huge hairy creature landed on the roof of their car.
Bigfoot takes a fresh look at the man-apes reported to exist in North America, South America, Australia, the Himalayas and Central Asia. It examines historic sightings as well as up-to-date ones - and poses the crucial question: are they really out there?

Annoyed The Crap Out of Me
It starts out alright but every single time he says ANYTHING in relevance to a measurement, he says what it is also in metric. For example: "The creature was about 6 feet, 183 centimeters, talls and about 15 feet, 5 yards, away and crossed the clearing to other side which was 1,000 feet, 1/3 of a kilometer, away." I'm not kidding. I never wanted to punch an author right in the beak so bad in my life.
