In this landmark work on a subject too often dismissed as paranormal or disreputable, Jeffrey Meldrum gives us the first book on sasquatch to be written by a scientist with impeccable academic credentials, an objective look at the facts in a field mined with hoaxes and sensationalism. Meldrum reports on the work of a team of experts from a wide variety of fields who were assembled to examine the evidence for a large, yet undiscovered, North American primate. He reviews the long history of this mystery--which long predates the "bigfoot" flap of the late fifties--and explains all the scientific pros and cons in a clear and accessible style, amplified by over 150 illustrations…
Jeff Meldrum is an anthropologist and anatomy professor at Iowa State University who also happens to be one of the world's leading Bigfoot researchers. His new book, titled Sasquatch: Legend Meets Science, "brings a much needed level of scientific analysis to the Sasquatch-or-Bigfoot debate," according to famed primatologist Jane Goodall.
