About the book:

From an Amazon review: Well-written scientific treatment of the sasquatch phenomen[on]. Dr. Grover Krantz has the distinction of being one of the few scientists who accepts the existence of the legendary "bigfoot". With a doctoral degree in physical anthropology from the University of Minnesota and additional training from U.C. Berkeley, he was uniquely qualified to investigate a sighting reported to him by a member of the public in 1968. As a result of his analysis of this sighting, and subsequent analysis of other sasquatch material, he came to the controversial conclusion that the "mythical" creature was in fact real- a conclusion that has cost him dearly in his professional life. Dr. Krantz dismisses all of the paranormal and pseudoscientific interpretations of the sasquatch phenomena, and instead analyzes the mystery from the standpoint of a zoologist. Using the famous "Patterson Film" and various sightings and footprint casts as his evidence, he reconstructs the biology of the creature, and demonstrates why it would be virtually impossible for the whole phonomena to be a hoax (though he readily acknowledges that many sightings and footprints are fake). He concludes the creature is a survival of *Gigantopithecus blacki*, an enormous primate known from the fossil record but thought to have gone extinct over 500,000 years ago. The book is well written and illustrated with Dr. Krantz's own drawings and photographs, and includes a complete bibliography. A must-read for those interested in the scientific aspects of the sasquatch phenomena.
