It took me only 3 1/2 days to finish this book, the third-most important Sasquatch book to have in your collection (followed closely by "Meet The Sasquatch" and "Sasquatch: The Apes Among Us"). Meldrum covers so many topics that were covered in the TV special that preceded this handsome volume, but the book goes beyond the TV special. Meldrum discusses the Ray Wallace fiasco, the Patterson/Gimlin Film (with an exclusive interview with Bob Gimlin), video footage, footprint morphology and dermatoglyphics, bear/Sasquatch misidentifications, Great Ape behavior and its parallels to Sasquatch behavior, statistical data and information and several other different topics. I would say if you only buy one Sasquatch book this year, make it this one. It's terrific, well-written and scholarly and sober. Would make a great Christmas or birthday gift for the skeptic in your family or circle of friends.

This review is from: Sasquatch Field Guide (Folding Pocket Guide) (Pamphlet)
This short but informative booklet/pamphlet, clocking in at only 10 pages, gives a basic primer for the Sasquatch field researcher as to how to recognize footprints; distinguishing between bear, human and Sasquatch tracks; how to cast a track and what materials to carry to do just that (Meldrum gives a list of things to take into the field for casting, but says if you cannot carry a long list of materials to cast tracks, you can use a can of minimally-expanding insulating foam and a few pieces of cardboard); how to distinguish a standing bear from a human and Sasquatch; how to recognize different sounds and other important tips and advice. He also describes different areas that would be the most likely to have activity, and also answers to the best of his ability why bones of the Sasquatch are almost never found. This booklet only costs $7.95 and is laminated, designed to be waterproof and to be carried in a backpack or a back pocket or jacket pocket. It is available at Amazon and also And the only rating I can put on it is a perfect 10!!!!!!

Meldrum, who teaches anatomy and anthropology at Idaho State University, might be the only college professor in the U.S. researching and publishing work on Bigfoot, or at least the only one putting his name to the subject. Meldrum brought attention to ...
