Bigfoot! The True Story of Apes in AmericaPoint here for more book info Order Now
Bigfoot has been a legendary figure in American folklore for almost a century. A name that is used to describe almost any large, hairy biped in North America ever since it was first introduced into common terminology, Bigfoot has always been a source of curiosity for scientists. Is Bigfoot some sort of ape? How does it survive? How does it reproduce? Does Bigfoot even exist?

In the Big thicket, the unknown makes profound intrusions into what we call "reality." There are cryptozoological wonders in this region of East Texas and in Southwestern Louisiana—"ghost lights," phantom Indians, howling ape-like "wild men," and fireballs that streak through the nighttime skies —that defy both our common sense notions of space-time and all attempts at scientific explanation.

Shuker also provides a supplement to Bernard Heuvelmans’s checklist of cryptozoological animals.

The Great New England Sea Serpent: An Account of Unknown Creatures Sighted by Many Respectable Persons Between 1638 and the Present DayPoint here for more book info Order Now
Is it a strange mammal related to the seals, a descendant of a prehistoric reptile, or a new, unidentified animal? Whatever it is, or was, the witnesses call it a sea serpent, and it has left a trail of clues and controversy going back three centuries. O’Neill draws on the historical record as well as previously unpublished first-hand accounts to chronicle more than 230 sightings of the mysterious marine creatures inhabiting the Gulf of Maine.

Nick Redfern is the author of the bestselling books A Covert Agenda: The British Government's UFO Top Secrets Exposed, The FBI Files: The FBI's UFO Top Secrets Exposed, and Cosmic Crashes: The Incredible Story of The UFOs That Fell to Earth.
Three Men Seeking Monsters Point here for more book info Order Now
On an odyssey of oddities that would take them all to the very limits of their imagination (and inebriation), bestselling author Nick Redfern teamed up with professional monster-hunters Jonathan Downes and Richard Freeman. For six weeks in the summer of 2001, the intrepid-yet-hard-partying trio rampaged across the remote wilds of Great Britain in hot pursuit of werewolves, lake monsters, giant cats, ghostly devil dogs, and ape-men.

*. What does the word “cryptozoology” mean? 

It’s the study of the reports of so-called legendary animals--such as Bigfoot, Sasquatch, and the Loch Ness monster--as recounted by native observers and other eyewitnesses with the express purpose of evaluating the possibility of their existence. A cryptozoologist is one who devotes himself or herself to this task, which science tends to frown upon by the way, even though this was, in fact, the original methodology used by zoologists.
