Sasquatch: The Apes Among Us -- by John Green. Originally published in 1978, this is still the landmark book on this subject, and a must read for anyone interested in bigfoot. Mr. Green delves into the history of bigfoot sightings, chronicles his participation is the expeditions financed by Tom Slick and demonstrates that bigfoot is a nationwide phenomena. It was out of print, but was recently reprinted and is available on Amazon and directly from Hancock House Publishers.

Mr. Green’s earlier books focused on bigfoot reports in the Pacific Northwest area, but are still great reading. On the Track of the Sasquatch, Year of the Sasquatch, The Sasquatch File, and Encounters with Bigfoot are all out of print as individual titles. Copies can sometimes be found on Amazon.

The Best of Sasquatch Bigfoot is Mr. Green’s latest book and is worth the price of admission for his refutation of the “Bigfoot died with Ray Wallace” nonsense. On the Track of the Sasquatch and Encounters with Bigfoot are reprinted in this book. Available on Amazon and directly from Hancock House Publishers.

Bigfoot/Sasquatch Evidence -- by Grover Krantz. Anthropologist Grover Krantz was one of the first scientists to research Bigfoot. A scientific, yet very readable, inquiry into the matter. Still in print and available on Amazon.

North America's Great Ape: The Sasquatch -- by John Bindernagel, wildlife biologist with experience with great apes. Dr. Bindernagel establishes that reported sasquatch behavior is very similar to that of the known great apes. An easy, yet fascinating read. You won’t want to put it down.

The Discovery of the Sasquatch -- by John Bindernagel. A fascinating look at why the perception of Bigfoot as a cultural phenomenon persists and why the great majority of scientists have adopted this perception as their hypothesis, yet have never tested this hypothesis. Both of Dr. Bindernagel’s books are available Amazon.

Sasquatch: Legend Meets Science -- by Jeff Meldrum. Based upon the documentary of the same title, but containing much more information. Dr. Meldrum reviews the long history of Bigfoot and presents the scientific pros and cons in a clear and accessible manner. Available on Amazon.

Bigfoot! The True Story of Apes in America -- by Loren Coleman. The first book I’ve ever read by this noted cryptozoologist. Engaging and well written.

The Search for Bigfoot: Monster, Myth or Man? -- by Peter Byrne, a former big-game hunter and long-time bigfoot hunter. The very first Bigfoot book I ever read. Now out of print, but copies sometimes turn up on Amazon.

Bigfoot: The Yeti and the Sasquatch in Myth and Reality -- by John Russell Napier, former Curator for Primates at the Smithsonian Institute. Now out of print. Copies are available on Amazon.


Ancient Mysteries: Bigfoot -- This is the Bigfoot episode of the Ancient Mysteries show that aired on the A&E Channel in the 1990s. It presents both the pro and con sides of the debate over bigfoot/sasquatch. The video includes a very interesting interview with the late Dr. Grover Krantz, and also has the full footage of the Patterson-Gimlin Film.

Sasquatch: Legend Meets Science -- Groundbreaking documentary which aired on the Discovery Channel in 2003. For the first time, a panel of scientists from a range of specialties examine the bigfoot/sasquatch phenomenon. A MUST SEE! I don’t why it doesn’t air in repeats every week. But I have never seen it on TV since its original airing. But it is available on DVD from Amazon.
