Tracking the Stone Man: West Virginia’s Bigfoot

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on April 25th, 2016



Tracking the Stone Man: West Virginia’s Bigfoot by Dr. Russell L. Jones, 2016.

This book by a Doctor and Certified Master Naturalist celebrates culture, nature, adventuring, and Our Barefoot Friends in The Mountain State of West Virginia.

• Native Americans called Bigfoot, The Stone Man
• 78% of West Virginia is covered by forest
• Reports from 1820 to 2014
• Provides a detailed look at the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization.

Tracking the Stone Man is a collection of essays from Dr. Jones’ youthful introduction to Bigfoot to his becoming a leader in the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization (BFRO). Perhaps most interesting are Dr. Jones’ adventures and encounters in the wild forests, steep ridges, and hollows of the Appalachian Mountains, the highest mountains east of the Rockies.

He concisely describes conflict, emotion, debate, and “Bigfootery” within the Bigfoot community. The 160 pages of this fast moving, tightly written book offer an abundance of action and suspense.

Words are not wasted on Bigfoot “fuzz,” fantasy, and speculations. In eleven chapters, The Stone Man contains 38 b&w photographs, including five clear track photos. There are also two custom drawn maps, five forensic investigation drawings, and four appendices. Published by Willamette City Press, LLC and priced at only $11.99, the book is available from and select stores. For signed copies contact the publisher.

Dr. Jones also gives readers an exceptional description of the inner workings of the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization. The BFRO is widely known and maintains an excellent website, but for those on the outside, it seems tantamount to a secret society.
