9780888396570: Know the Sasquatch/Bigfoot: Sequel & Update to Meet the Sasquatch

Learn about the sasquatch/bigfoot from various perspectives. The reader will gain from this work an appreciation of the creature far beyond that provided in most other published books on this subject. In 2004 the first edition of this work, Meet the Sasquatch, accompanied a sasquatch exhibit at the Vancouver Museum, British Columbia, Canada. In that same year, it won the Anomalist Book of the Year Award in the category of best-illustrated book. It went on to accompany another major exhibit in 2006 at the Museum of Natural History, Pocatello, Idaho. Over the last four years, the book has found its way to thousands of sasquatch/bigfoot enthusiasts world-wide, and has become an acknowledged classic in its field. General feedback and comments from numerous researchers, together with new findings, indicated that the work should not be simply reprinted. As a result, it has been updated, with a considerable amount of new material added, and has now become Know the Sasquatch/Bigfoot. For this new edition, Chris Murphy again consulted many major sasquatch/bigfoot researchers, scientists, and others. The information provided is the latest available, and again is highly authoritative.

The title is intended to convey the message of knowing the sasquatch/bigfoot from various perspectives. The reader will gain from this work an appreciation of the creature far beyond that provided in most other published books on this subject.

About the Author:

Christopher L. Murphy retired in 1994 after 36 years of service with the British Columbia Telephone Company (now Telus). During his career, he authored four books on business processes. After retirement he taught a night school course on vendor quality management at the B.C. Institute of Technology. An avid philatelist, Chris has written several books on Masonic Philately. Chris got involved in the sasquatch mystery when he met Rene Dahinden, who lived nearby, in 1993. He then worked with Rene in producing posters from the Patterson/Gimlin film and marketing sasquatch footprint casts. In 1996, Chris republished Roger Patterson's 1966 book, Do Abominable Snowmen of America Really Exist?, and Fred Beck's book, I Fought the Apemen of Mt. St. Helens. In 1997, Chris published Bigfoot in Ohio: Encounters with the Grassman, a book he authored in association with Joedy Cook and George Clappison of Ohio. In 2000, Chris embarked on a project to assemble a comprehensive pictorial presentation on the sasquatch. This initiative led to his 2004 sasquatch exhibit at the Vancouver (BC) Museum and the publication of Meet the Sasquatch, the first edition of this book. In due course, Chris wrote a supplemental section to Roger Patterson's book, which was republished in 2005 by Hancock House Publishers under the title, The Bigfoot Film Controversy. The following year, Chris updated his Ohio book, again with his two previous associates, and it was published in 2006 by Hancock House under the title, Bigfoot Encounters in Ohio: Quest for the Grassman. Chris's sasquatch exhibit next traveled to the Museum of Mysteries in Seattle, where it was displayed for five months in 2005. In June of the following year, it opened at the Museum of Natural History in Pocatello Idaho, where it was shown for 15 months. Chris has also attended and presented at many sasquatch symposiums, and has taken part in several television documentaries on the subject.

Review:

The author sent this to me via a series of .PDFs, and it is a GREAT one. Murphy takes his 2004 New Classic Meet The Sasquatch and greatly expands on it, adding in material which is basically up-to-the-minute, such as the new Snelgrove Lake findings, as well as findings by Hoopa Project author David Paulides on the humanness of the Sasquatch. There is also quite a bit of new photos and illustrations throughout the book, as well as expanded sections on early sighting reports, pictographs and petroglyphs depicting possible Sasquatches and even supplemental material on the Patterson/Gimlin Movie. There is also a good bit on evidence which is expanded upon, such as the Skookum Cast, footprints (including the Matt Crowley findings), nesting and bedding areas, hair samples, vocalizations (The Sierra Sounds are discussed in Alan Berry's own words) and other bits of evidence. There is also a section about the main area of sightings, The Pacific Northwest, with some gorgeous photography from Alaska, British Columbia, Washington, Oregon and Northern California (an especially terrific shot of the crater of Mt. Saint Helens). The tribute section is greatly expanded, to include Robert W. Morgan, Peter Byrne, M.K. Davis, Craig Woolheater, Loren Coleman, Michael Rugg, John Kirk, Gerry Matthews and West Coast Sasquatch and Thom Powell. There is also a section on some of the Paranormal aspects of the Sasquatch mystery, focusing on Jack Kewaunee Lapseritis, the late Fred Beck and his assertions that the Sasquatch is not of this earth and Henry Franzoni. Murphy even notes it made him uncomfortable to include that section in the book, but felt that if he ignored it, it would be no better than the entire scientific community ignoring the question of Sasquatch in general. This book is not available for the public yet, and will probably not be till sometime next year, but getting a sneak preview of it, I highly recommend it. When this one comes out, make sure to get a hold of it. It is a worthy successor and sequel to the 2004 volume, and a worthy edition to any bookshelf. --Henry May, Southeast Sasquatch Association

Christopher L. Murphy came out with a new book, one that I applaud as new work of art by a master and experienced craftsman. Know the Sasquatch Bigfoot, an update with new info and a sequel to Meet the Sasquatch. As before, the 300+ page volume is crammed with great photos and lots of graphs and comparison; pictures with numerous sidebars. I lost track of trying to count how many photos and art drawings there were. n conclusion, Chris states that the Patterson film remains the gold-standard in the investigation of the Sasquatch phenomena. He does point out though that other avenues have been examined... It comes to mind the many miles on miles of track-ways that have been found and examined. There are also many thousands of reports, that more hardly seem necessary. And Russ Kinne reports from a fly-over of western forests, that it would be possible to hide a herd of elephants in the region. A final paragraph speculates on what would happen if the Sasquatch is confirmed as a new species. Speculations, imply that the Sasquatch might be closely related to humans, and there would be a great many scientists doing an about-face, with probably egg on their face's, as biologists come to terms with the addition of the next 'Great Ape' to the menagerie. --Ray Crowe, Oct 2010
