Sasquatch: North America’s Enduring Mystery by Matthews was an excellent read on the subject of Bigfoot! In the academic sense, Matthews wrote an excellent literature review of the phenomenon of Bigfoot type creatures in North America and around the world. In addition, he reviewed the pros and cons of current research and evidence with an open-mind without being a skeptic. He lays out all of the information in an easy to read style for everyone to understand and make his or her own conclusion. T ...more

This was an awful book, one of the worst I've read in a long time. Bad writing and bad editing. Specific problems I had with this book include the almost random seeming paragraph breaks, section titles that had nothing to do with most of their section and the incessant doubling up of measurements as a way to sound more scientific. When someone is estimating something as 5 ft high, you don't have to put the exact centimeter measurement in parenthesis every time.

For the type of book that this was......It was good. He provided a lot of information for people like me interested in the topic. The book is well written with a lot of thought into the subject.

He took his time and analyzed e ...more

This book was absolutely amazing!! What I really, really, really like was that the author made points on both sides that he does exist and that it's a hoax. It's also not a book where the side where Sasquatch does exist, the author isn't shoving it down your throat that it exist. It was incredible to hear about it. The last page really get's to ya.

'Sasquatch: North America's Enduring Mystery' is probably the very best book about Bigfoot that I've read to date. Author Rupert Matthews has written a surprisingly comprehensive look at the various primate type cryptid creatures reported the world over for literally centuries.

Book was alright. It's a very surface explanation of Sasquatch.

When I picked this up at a used book store, I did not have hopes, but I was pleasantly surprised. The author is a prolific British writer of non-fiction and history who is interested in the strange and unusual. The book is a good up-to-date compilation and would serve as a good, no-nonsense introduction to the subject of our elusive hairy friends in the forest.
