10 Reviews
A noted investigator of the paranormal explores the historical, geographical, and cultural reaches of various "manimals" and other humanoid entities—among them such monster men as Gigantopithecus and Neanderthals; hairy man-beasts like Sasquatch and the elusive de Loys' Ape; supernatural beings, including werewolves, vampires, and devil men; and supposedly spaceship-borne entities like Mothman and the Roswell humanoids. This book takes the reader on expeditions into wilderness areas, explores historical contexts, and brings folkloric and iconographic evidence to bear on a category of mysteries as old as humanity.

Review: Tracking the Man-Beasts: Sasquatch, Vampires, Zombies & More

User Review  - Lori Harris - Goodreads

Refreshing to read a skeptical approach to these modern myths. Easy to read but at times the author comes over a bit mean. Would have been better with more in depth information. Read full review
