A good collection of stories, although it would've benefited from some sort of analysis or commentary, especially in tying the stories of various people together.

A must read for any cryptozoologist. Native Amerian oral tradions about "Sasquatch or Wild Man". Worth reading - has Native language names & translations in back of book. Wonderful resource.
