In Bigfoot Exposed, biological anthropologist and primate physiology specialist David J. Daegling objectively examines the northwest American myth of Bigfoot. Using scientific methodology, Daegling systematically and persuasively repudiates the evidence purportedly demonstrating the creature's existence, and ultimately concludes that Bigfoot exists only in the popular imagination.

Industry Reviews

Here is the book that both true believers and doubters have long been calling for: a serious scientific look at the evidence for Bigfoot's physical existence. Elegantly reasoned and written, Bigfoot Exposed treats the subject with an open mind, the care and depth it deserves, and respect for everyone involved. Those of us who remain hopeful that Bigfoot walks should definitely read this enjoyable book, as well as the skeptics. While Dr. Daegling cannot prove that Sasquatch is strictly legendary, he certainly raises the bar for belief in North America's giants. This can only be good for all in search of the truth.--Robert Michael Pyle, author of Where Bigfoot Walks: Crossing the Dark Divide
