Australia's most baffling zoological mystery! During the early colonial era, Australia's Aborigines often warned British settlers to beware of huge, ape-like creatures that lurked in the rugged mountains and deep forests of the island continent. Their people, they said, had been encountering the hairy horrors since time immemorial. They knew them by many names, including ...more

I'll admit it. I'm a Sasquatch believer. It might be hard for the creature to hide in the Pacific Northwest forests, but I keep thinking back to creatures and tribes that have been suddenly found although they've been around for quite a while. I know, I know. Most of you think I'm crazy...

This book simply supports that belief. It actually seem more logical that a Bigfoot creature should exist in Australia than in other parts of the world. Look at the weird creatures the continent has produced:

I've read this book three times. Each time I was amazed at the exhaustive research conducted by Mr. Healy about a hairy hominid/cryptid that too little is heard about, because it is on another continent.

It's the subtle differences in behavior that make this variety of Sasquatch-type creatures intriguing and the fact that its history is so vast and carefully calculated. The accounts and ...more

I read about the yowie in something else and went searching for something more in depth - I'm so glad I did!

Even better is the exhaustive research and compelling eye witness accounts presented. I went from knowing next to nothing about the yowie to a dubious believer.
