The Bigfoot Files
Does a giant hairy apelike creature roam the forests and swamps of North America? If so, this huge creature has managed to keep pretty well hidden, but is seen from time to time. Bigfoot is seen lurking in the shadows of strip malls in the Pacific Northwest and photographed walking across a stream or hiding behind a tree. He is watching hikers as they move through the forest and occasionally kidnaps children or murders solitary people who are in the woods. Childress gives us the latest bigfoot sightings and photos and looks at how the hairy giant has crept into the American psyche as time goes on. Childress starts at the beginning, telling the story behind an apparent bigfoot photo from the 1800s, and the tale of how the creature got its name in the 1950s. Bigfoot is present throughout the country, and Childress relates stories of sightings Back East, in the American Southwest, California and Pacific Northwest. He discusses bigfoot that make lots of noise, and presents photos throughout, including a special eight-page color photo section.
