This was a pretty sweet acquisition at this past summer’s Michigan BFRO meeting in Munising. That was a great time too. Good people, and the roast pig was amazing. This book is useful in that it compiles a lot of the more famous sightings in an easily digestible format. Loren Coleman is the man. His books, along with the crazy French guy in Harry and the Hendersons, introduced me to the idea that there were people out there looking for undiscovered primates in the woods. I’ve always thought that was fascinating. The biggest drawback I see with this volume is the classification system. They are trying to be scientific with it, but they end up with nine different categories of unknown primates that have been sighted all around the world, often with overlapping ranges. For most people, the idea of one undiscovered beast like Bigfoot stretches credulity. Nine is just over the line. It diminishes the likelihood that very many people will take this book seriously, which is too bad. It is kind of a collector’s item, but I would snag it if you happen to come across a copy.
