This was a really good mystery, there was a bit of evolution mentioned in it but it kinda got proven wrong..... :) But anyway, Trixie Belden books are so good and they are so much better than the Nancy Drew Mysteries. My grandma gave me one of her books and it was so rotten, boyfriend, girlfriend, things like that, I couldn't even finish it. Trixie Belden has none of that, and they are very realistic mysteries. All in all the best mystery series like this out there, I think!

Trixie and her friends are in Idaho camping with her cousins. There's a rumor that a sasquatch has been spotted in the area, and then one wanders into camp. Or does it? As strange thing keep happening, Trixie needs to figure out what is really happening.

This is a very uneven book plot wise, with a slow start but a very suspenseful second half. The characters are mostly good, except for poor Diana who comes across as a whining scaredy cat - not one of her better books. Overall, this one is okay a
For Christmas one year, my parents grabbed me the entire Trixie Belden set and I couldn't put them down. After I finished with them, they continued to purchase them as quickly as I could read them. Even with a learning disability, I devoured the books. I look back now and I find that Trixie Belden was much more age related to young girls, particularly to me, reading the books than Nancy Drew. There was something in these books that I found to be a greater escape than I did ND, too. I found that ...more

A childhood favorite re-visited.

Is the story as good as I remember? – Yes

What ages would I recommend it too? – Ten and up.

Length? – Most of a day’s read.

Characters? – Memorable, several characters.

Setting? – Real world, pre - computer pre - air conditioning, pre - cell phone.

Written approximately? – 1979.

Does the story leave questions in the readers mind? – Ready to read more. Why does Mrs. Trask act out of character?

Any issues the author (or a more recent publisher) should cover? Yes. A slight
I think I read a review of a previous Trixie describing that story's plot as "very Scooby Doo." I disagreed on that, but believe it applies to this one. The Beldens and Bob Whites go so far as to set a trap to catch the Swisher men who are impersonating a sasquatch. The Swisher's wanted to clear the forest so they could find and steal Old Tank's gold. "And they would have gotten away with it, too, if it wasn't for those meddlin' kids (minus the dog). Zoinks! if only they'd brought along Patch an ...more
In my opinion, this was a very good book. I used to read Nancy Drew, but it feels like Nancy is hardly a person. She never gets angry and barely ever laughs or gets embarrassed or anything and she's like, completely perfect. Nancy Drew doesn't show any emotion, but Trixie Belden has spunk. Trixie has an interesting personality, gets teased by her friends and brothers, and isn't perfect. this is only the first Trixie Belden book I've read so far but I'm already in love with the series!
This book was as good last month as it was 30 years ago. Loved it.
Very fast paced, but didn't really enjoy it as there was no background as to what the kids were doing camped out in the wild like there normally is. It was just thrown straight into adventure and I found most of it quite confusing! Trixie's cousins were also really irritating!
Liked the Idaho camping trip and the Belden cousins (and an easier to like Hallie, though she still has her annoying moments). No Dan...of course. And I don't care for the whole Sasquatch storyline.
My favorite books from adolescence- and I proudly owned every one. Most had the beige covers with Trixie in profile. I had to tape up the covers when they fell apart from frequent re-reads.

Recommends it for: trixie belden fans
I've always been interested in the Sasquatch/Yeti/Bigfoot mystery, so it was enjoyable to watch Trixie and co tackle the mystery themselves.

Another fun mystery.
I loved reading this series. As a child, I couldn't wait to go to the bookstore with my Dad, so I could get a new Trixie Belden book.
Joy Gerbode
Not one of my favorites in the series, but still good fun interacting with cousins of the Belden siblings.
I loved this series of books growing up and am so glad I found them on goodreads...
I really like these books and I like that you get to meat some of Trixie Belden's family
Sasquatch- sounds like it should be right up my neck of the woods. It's a good read.
I just suggest not to read this book at night.

The Kathryn Kenny pseudonym was created by Western Publishing House in 1961, three years after Julie Campbell wrote her last book (#6) of the Trixie Belden series. There were several ghost writers who wrote Trixie Belden stories under this pseudonym. Some have been identified and later credited but some are still unknown.
