A Holiday Book in Review: Yetis, Sasquatch & Hairy Giants

Yetis, Sasquatch & Hairy Giants By: David Hatcher Childress
Non-fiction: Paranormal 378 pages
Book Count: 94

This book is odd, like most on the subject it seams to be written to show people the legitimacy of Bigfoot research and that they exist. However, it uses Wikipedia as a source more then a professor would allow on a school paper. Also it includes random pictures of the cover of the "Weekly World News". It starts by talking about giants in history and legends as if the next step from really tall people is a Sasquatch. Much of the book is just quotes of people's stories of seeing a yeti, Bigfoot, grassman or any of the other names for the same or similar animals. It talks more about cases that seam to be faked then the most reliable Bigfoot information. It does have a bibliography in the back and notes where each story is from, but that is the extent of scholarlyness in the book.

(Also, this ends the Halloween books that I didn't finish before the holiday.)
