Bigfoot Sasquatch: Evidence
by Grover S. Krantz

In a lucid, highly readable style, Dr. Krantz separates the solid evidence from the dubious, corrects many famous misconceptions, and, in the end, really takes the skeptics to task.

Fully illustrated with hundreds of drawings and high-resolution photographs, The Tracker's Field Guide sets a new standard for books on tracking.
