  1. NMRNG responds:

    I have some reading to do as I’ve only read two of the top-ten.

    However, I noted that list compiler Loren Coleman has his own book at #5 and Jeff Meldrum’s at #8.

    For anyone who has ever read the two books, such a ranking is only possible if

    a) one is biased and not objective; or

    b) concerned more with older reported sightings or evidence and not ones since the PG film.

    I thought the newer, much better illustrated, lengthier, better edited, and more objective (although still not enough) book by the ISU professor was a far better source and one much more likely to open the minds of bigfoot skeptics.

    I think the bear-sasquatch profile comparison illustration in Meldrum’s book alone will do more to quiet naysayers about misidentifications than almost any evidence short of an actual corpse.

    I recognized the covers of several of the older paperbacks and while I don’t recall specifics, I know I read and probably at one time or another owned at least two of them, nearly four decades ago. I vaguely remember one of them or perhaps it was a contemporary I checked out from the library opened my eyes to the possibility that all that appears in print is not well-reasoned, accurate and the gospel, bet-your-house-on-it truth, a pretty startling revelation to one still in elementary school.
