A practical guide combining in-depth knowledge of wilderness exploration and wild animal behavior with detailed information on preparation for large and small expeditions. World-renowned explorer and wilderness guide, Peter Byrne, combines his in-depth knowledge of wilderness exploration and wild animal behavior to produce this unique, practical guide. Focusing on what he considers to be the last three great, unsolved mysteries (the sasquatch or bigfoot of the Pacific Northwest of North America; the yeti or abominable snowmen, of the Himalaya; and the prehistoric monsters of Loch Ness in Scotland) he shares with his readers his decades of experience searching for definitive proof of their existence. But the heart of this book is the wealth of detailed information the author provides on planning large or small expeditions into remote areas, including habitat, pinpointing search areas, obtaining permits and permissions, what staff is needed, travel logistics, general and essential equipment and food, safety tips, and what to do if/when contact is made with the creature. Whether you are a general researcher with an interest in exploring the wilderness or a dedicated monster hunter, this book is both an interesting read and an essential reference. The book is full color throughout and includes many never-before published photographs.About the Author:
In the world of cryptozoology, Peter Byrne needs no introduction. He has been committed to the search for unrecognized creatures for over 50 years. In his early life, he was a big-game hunting guide in Nepal, a profession that instilled in him a unique knowledge of the ways of wild animals. In the late 1960s he put his professional hunting career behind him and, wanting to give something back, formed The International Wildlife Conservation Society, Inc. in Washington, DC. Working with this organization, he designed and carried out a twenty-year series of wildlife preservation programs in the area of his former hunting concession in Nepal. This work continues to the present day. During this time and later, Peter led expeditions in the Himalayas to search for the yeti, and then pioneered sasquatch research in North America. In the 1970s he joined renowned American explorer Robert Rines in his search for the fabled monsters of Loch Ness. This guidebook brings to the table Peter's in-depth knowledge of wilderness exploration with valuable advice on wild animal behavior. We are provided with detailed information on how to prepare for expeditions, large or small, what to expect in the way of hazards when in remote areas, and rare insights into how wild animals might react to the presence of humans. Furthermore, we are given Peter's thoughts on the nature of the specific creatures in this trilogy. The work is illustrated with numerous color photographs, many never before published. It is an invaluable resource for researchers who wish to explore wilderness regions for any reason, and a fascinating read for crytpozoology enthusiasts.
