Overview

Our committed search to uncover the truth about Bigfoot 

Join investigators Tom Burnette and Rob Riggs on their amazing adventure into the wild where the mysterious creature known as Bigfoot dwells. Over the past twenty years, these two men have dedicated themselves to the search for Bigfoot in the Smoky Mountains of North Carolina and the swamplands of Southeast Texas.

Drawing on forty-plus years of combined field study, Tom and Rob present their personal stories, ethnographic research, and educated theories surrounding Bigfoot. Revealing a substantial collection of evidence supporting Bigfoot’s existence, this book provides details of the creature’s history, habitats, and behaviors. With thought-provoking discussions on Bigfoot’s elusiveness and potential psychic powers, Bigfoot goes beyond the myth to the reality of this enigmatic ape-man.

Praise: “If you think that monsters aren’t real, it’s time to think again. Tom Burnette and Rob Riggs take us on a roller-coaster ride into a world where the wild things lurk ”—Nick Redfern, author of Three Men Seeking Monsters 

"The speculations will provide Bigfoot enthusiasts with plenty to contemplate, as will Burnette's assertion that he's captured 'the best Bigfoot picture bar none in the world.'"—Publishers Weekly

" A] well-written and thrilling account of their work. The stories in this book will raise the hair on the back of one's neck and cause sleepless nights, especially if one lives near a big woods." — San Francisco Book Review

"Bigfoot are naturally going to be seen in remote places," state Bigfoot experts Burnette and Riggs (In the Big Thicket) to open this examination and potential explanation for the existence of the legendary creature. The duo go on to relate a number of eyewitness accounts, as well as their own experiences, before bringing in other experts to corroborate their hypotheses and aid in documenting the elusive beast, leaving with only some footprints to show for their efforts. Skeptical readers will find the book's first half to be informative but predictable. Proceedings take an interesting turn in Chapter Six, "Why It's So Hard to Prove Their Existence," where the authors offer numerous theories before they reach a far-out possibility: that Bigfoot are supernatural creatures that can come and go as they please, appearing and disappearing at will. The book's latter third examines this theory, questioning whether or not Bigfoot are somehow tied to energy fields, electromagnetic disturbances, and the appearance of mysterious light phenomena. The speculations will provide Bigfoot enthusiasts with plenty to contemplate, as will Burnette's assertion that he's captured "the best Bigfoot picture bar none in the world." Oddly enough, neither that picture nor any others are included here, leaving more questions than answers. (Mar.)
