The following is the publisher’s official “Book Description,” which is being disseminated about Abominable Snowmen: Legend Come to Life:


Scottish zoologist IVAN TERRANCE SANDERSON (1911-1973) coined the word cryptozoology and first used it in print in this hard-to-find 1961 work, the story of “hairy hominids” across the planet from the very beginnings of human civilization until the mid 20th century. With its scientific, anthropological approach, this is one of the first books to treat the phenomenon of “Bigfoot” seriously, and introduced a groundbreaking classification system for the spectrum of subhumanoids.

“I am happy that a whole new generation of cryptozoologists-in-training will be able to read Ivan T. Sanderson’s classic book,” says cryptozoologist Loren Coleman in his new introduction. “This book opened the minds of many to the vastness of the hominoid reports. and spotlighted for people that Bigfoot/Sasquatch research was the next area for exploration in North America.”

This new edition, complete with the original illustrations and maps, is part of Cosimo’s Loren Coleman Presents series. LOREN COLEMAN is author of numerous books of cryptozoology, including Bigfoot! The True Story of Apes in America and Mothman and Other Curious Encounters.


The new edition of Abominable Snowmen: Legend Come to Life is an exact, unedited copy of Ivan T. Sanderson’s 1961 book, shown with its old cover below, with a new introduction added to the contents.

Loren Coleman About Loren Coleman
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.
