KIRKUS REVIEW

Backing and filling along the well worn tracks of the bigfoot, Baumann recounts with relish the first-hand evidence (including our favorite, Mr. Albert Ostman's tale of his six-day captivity as a sort of pet to a bigfoot family). More interesting, perhaps, are the men who've made a life's work out of hunting bigfoot with gun and/or camera, and the fact that so many eyewitnesses seem to completely forget what they've seen until years later when some researcher jogs their memory. With passing disdain for those few remaining killjoys, ""obscure professors"" at ""obscure colleges,"" who still doubt bigfoot's existence, Baumann has a jolly time of it--more fun than any investigator so far, though Napier's (adult) search for Bigfoot (KR, 1973) is still the only trail really worth pursuing.
