The Sasquatch File by John Green
In this book we basically have reports of signings from the Untied States and Canada up until 1972.
I guess my major complaint on this book is that the reports are pretty short, normally just one or two sentences, it would have been nice if we had a little more detail. There are a couple of reports that actually use the newspaper clippings, which was nice but they were really hard to read. I understand some of the reports were ages old even when the book was published which probably didn't help matters much.
I do think the book is a valuable piece of work of trying to catalogue reports of Sasquatch, but like I said before more detail would have been nice.
The book is dedicated to none other that Roger Patterson who was responsible for the now pretty much accepted faking of a bigfoot siting on the Klamath River near Orleans, California. Now, does that mean that we should assume that everything in this book is false because of that? No, I don't think so. I think it's something to just add to the mix.
If you can find this book, I'd say pick it up and give it a good read if you are into bigfoot.
This was published in 1973 by Cheam Publishing Ltd, Agassiz, BC
