If you are interested in Bigfoot or Sasquatch I highly recommend Lyle Blackburn's new book The Beast of Boggy Creek: The True Story of the Fouke
Monster. It was one of the most enjoyable cryptozoology reads I have had in a long time.
The book is well written and flows very nicely without a lot of jumping back and forth in the timeline. The book recounts the intriguing tale of the
Fouke Monster who allegedly resides around Jonesville and Fouke, Arkansas. The popular drive in movie of the early 1970's, The Legend of Boggy
Creek, is based on true events that occured in the area in the late 1960s and early 70s. The book looks at earlier sightings of the monster,
discusses the incidents portrayed in the movie and the movie's impact on Fouke residents. It then goes on to detail sightings of the monster from
the mid1970s through 2010. It also has a well researched section discussing what the monster could be (circus train escapee? misidentified animal?
rumor started by moonshiners?) as well as some really great illustrations. I give it three toes up! (A little Fouke Monster humor there
