Serious cryptozoology (the study of hidden animals) has been a hobby of mine since I was a kid. I found an old battered copy of "On The Track of the Sasquatch" by John Green at a second hand store, or a garage sale. I've been hooked ever since. One of my most prized possessions is an 1959 edition of "On The Trail Of Unknown Animals" by Bernard Heuvelmans, which is widely (and by widely, I mean widely in the cryptozoology scene) regarded as the baseline to which all other books of its type are judged.

If you'd like to try some serious non fiction, I recommend the following books (available in ebook format)

-Sasquatch: Legend Meets Science by Dr. Jeff Meldrum
-Bigfoot!: The True Story of Apes in America by Loren Coleman.



Made me chuckle, the Six Million Dollar Man was a bit before my time, but I remember the Sasquatch episode of MacGyver quite well...
I remember the Six Million Dollar Man. I also remember a movie about the Sasquatch playing in my local theater back in the 70's though I don't recall the title of the movie itself. Around that time they also had a movie out about Near Death experiences and one about Noah's Ark as I recall. The 70's were an odd era for non-fiction movies.

Hey, I remember watching "In Search of Noah's Ark" on the family's first VHS VCR. I haven't thought about that one in years!

How about Bigfoot and Wildboy from the Saturday morning "Power Hour" series.


I, too, spent some time looking for decent Bigfoot/Sasquatch "fiction" to read and really had no luck. Either the author really was not taking the material seriously or the author was looking for an angle such as making the creature a product of government genetic research, etc., and not really using any of the Bigfoot lore as their starting point.

If you are familiar with Dresden, these are very good reads.

I wish Butcher would give us a side-novel that delved into his take on Bigfoot. The focus on the actual Sasquatch character is tasty but not filling enough.

Is that the reading order and between which novels do they fall?

That is the reading order, and they only actually touch on the novels in one place having to do with the white court vampires and their feeding habits so you could probably read through them without encountering anything you need to know from the novels.

Oh, I watched them all.

Along with what has been mentioned so far, I remember watching Land of the Lost, Shazam, Isis, and Jason of Star Command.

I watched those, too. I actually bought an episode of Jason of Star Command from iTunes. It was just like I remembered it. The best character on the whole show was the villain, played by Sid Haig. I missed out on Sid Haig becoming a cult horror movie icon, so when I saw him in a cast list for a horror movie a few years ago, my first thought was "Oh, cool! The bad guy from Jason of Star Command!"


Gee, I wonder if iTune has Shazam and Isis?...

Wow, I loved the original series. I remember they did a reboot years ago, but it never had the same feeling to it. I remember the Sleestack lizard men scared the hell outta me when I was a kidling.
