Searching for Sasquatch:Crackpots, Eggheads, and Cryptozoology Palgrave Studies in the History of Science and Technology. Auflage 2011 B. Regal
After massive footprints were found in Northern California in the early 50´s, newspaper reporters coined the term ´´Bigfoot´´. As the legend of Bigfoot grew the term became synonymous with the Native American creature known as Sasquatch. Accounts of a creature six to nine feet tall, covered head to foot in dark fur and possessing super human strength have only increased in the video age. There are hundreds of new sightings each year as well as new video and audio evidence and other breakthroughs such as DNA tested hair and skin samples. In recent years, the search for the creature has gained world wide attention and valuable support from the scientific community. Today, after decades of searching, the modern day Sasquatch Hunter is armed with the latest technology in search of the beast. Join us as we delve into the psyche of several Sasquatch Hunters and learn what they do and don´t believe. From theories to known facts, today´s Sasquatch Hunters are closing in on the elusive creature who may hold the key to our own evolution. 1. Language: English.

A few hard truths: Don´t bet on Hasselhoff, Bigfoot might actually exist, and searching for the impossible may lead you to your heart´s desire.... It´s a big fat hairy deal when I lose yet another bet to my best friend, Rena. Not only do I end up attending Bigfoot meetings with her kooky Aunt Phyllis, I find myself traveling with a band of reality TV, Sasquatch-hunting nut-jobs! Not to mention a suspiciously shady film crew. As if those little nuggets weren´t enough to send me on the express train to Crazytown...I stupidly swore off men! Clearly, all this would mess up any gal´s social life, but the worst part of the story? The minute I send my libido on vacation, I meet Mitch. Yep, Mitch, the sexiest cop ev-ah. The hottest, best-kissing, finest tushied single guy I´ve ever laid eyes on. I´d rather be hot on his trail than anything that involves the word big or foot. But sometimes what you´re hunting for has been right in front of you all along.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Amanda Ronconi.
