Voices in the Wilderness: A True Story

By Ronald Morehead

Voices in the Wilderness: A True Story

Why this book?

Ron Morehead is a true explorer in the field of Bigfoot research. He could easily stand shoulder-to-shoulder with Clive Cussler in the category of author, explorer, and adventurer. Voices in the Wilderness chronicles Morehead’s four-decade journey of trying to understand what he heard in the Sierra Nevada woods back in the early 1970s. Toward the end of the book, Moorehead explores ideas and theories on the origins of Bigfoot and what researchers are searching for in the forest.

The Search for Big Foot: Monster, Myth or Man?

By Peter Byrne

The Search for Big Foot: Monster, Myth or Man?

Why this book?

For me, the ’60s & ’70s were the hay day of Bigfoot research. Along with Coleman, Moorehead, Green, and Dahinden, Peter Byrne was deep in the woods searching for the elusive creature. What I love about Byrne’s, The Search for Big Foot, is the authenticity of his quest. As I turned each page, I felt as if I was sitting by the campfire with Byrne as he shared his thoughts and compelling evidence for the elusive creature.

In the Valleys of the Noble Beyond: In Search of the Sasquatch

By John Zada

In the Valleys of the Noble Beyond: In Search of the Sasquatch

Why this book?

John Zada’s writing style is equal to Jon Krakauer and David Grann, in his ability to pull the reader into the narrative of the story with the precision of his words. In the Valleys of the Noble Beyond: In Search of the Sasquatch, Zada does an excellent job of providing historical context related to Bigfoot lore without retelling all of the classic stories. But what captured my heart the most, was the stunning imagery of the British Columbia coast and Great Bear Rainforest that Zada captured with his words.

Monster

By Frank Peretti

Monster

Why this book?

Based on my own experiences, choosing a fictional novel about Bigfoot is difficult because most writers portray the creature in the most bizarre way. However, Monster by Peretti is a rare example of an engaging story where Bigfoot is portrayed based on authentic and believable research. I thoroughly enjoyed the intricate web of mystery that was woven throughout the plot.
