In this landmark work on a subject too often dismissed as paranormal or disreputable, Jeffrey Meldrum gives us the first book on Sasquatch to be written by a scientist with impeccable academic credentials. He gives an objective look at the facts in a field mined with hoaxes and sensationalism. Meldrum reports on the work of a team of experts from a wide variety of fields who were assembled to examine the evidence for a large, yet undiscovered, North American primate. He reviews the long history of this mystery--which long predates the "Bigfoot" flap of the late fifties--and explains all the scientific pros and cons in a clear and accessible style, amplified by over 150 illustrations. Anyone who has pondered the mysteries of human evolution will be fascinated and eager to join Dr. Meldrum in drawing their own conclusion.

Review: Sasquatch: Legend Meets Science

User Review  - Paranorm - Goodreads

One of the best books on Bigfoot you can find. Tons and tons of pictures and drawings. This book truly is an open minded examination of all the evidence we have for Bigfoot. I've let a few skeptics borrow this book from me and they all have changed their minds about the possibility of Bigfoot. Read full review
