"In the past thirty years numerous books have been published about reported observations of giant, hairy bipeds in the forests of North America, but none by a scientist qualified to assess whether what the witnesses described added up to a believable animal. John Bindernagel, with a Ph.D in wildlife biology and extensive field experience in more than one part of the world, has now supplied that need. North America's Great Ape: The Sasquatch could prove to be the most important book yet written on this fascinating subject."
-John Green, author, The Sasquatch File, On the Track of the Sasquatch, Year of the Sasquatch, and Sasquatch: The Apes Among Us
Finally, here is a book that goes beyond the debate about whether or not the sasquatch exists, and discusses the anatomy, ecology, food habits, and behavior of this elusive mammal. Dr. John Bindernagel, a Canadian wildlife biologist, has been studying the sasquatch in British Columbia since 1975. For this book he has selected over 150 sasquatch reports which help us understand this controversial animal. In his low-keyed style, he also addresses many of the problems of belief which have kept us from seriously evaluating the reports of the gorillalike mammals which walk upright and look more like hair-covered humans than the bears with which we are more familiar
Dr. Bindernagel's references to the literature on the great apes of Africa and Asia (the gorilla, chimpanzee, and orangutan) help us understand that the sasquatch is not nearly so unusual as we may think. It is simply a North American great ape, behaving like other great apes, but most often out of sight in the wilderness-and occasionally the back yards-of North America.
This is a serious and refreshingly candid look at a long-misunderstood North American animal. It will answer many of our questions about this mysterious wildlife species-and raise many more.
