My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I met the author at one of his Bigfoot lectures. I admit it, I'm a little more than skeptical but I do find the idea of cryptozoology is fun. The book matches the title. It's a documentation of the author's first hand experiences with hunting Bigfoot from finding foot impressions (and in one memorable photo a 'butt impression' that looks a lot like a place where a deer had bedded down), the strange vocalizations they make, the odd twisted tree 'baskets' they supposedly make and their acrid, skunky scent (see also the skunk ape in Florida).
Not all of the stories are the author's experiences. Many are of other eye witnesses, plenty of sighting stories.
It was fun, written conversationally but honestly I'm not sure it convinces anyone that Salt Fork park (and other Ohio locales) has a Bigfoot lurking in it. Though I'm not sure it aims to do that. It relates the sightings and you draw your own conclusions. It does make me want to go poke around Salt Fork because I'm too curious for my own good.
