"John Bindernagel has given us a closely argued, cogent, convincing explanation why the evidence has not brought widespread acknowledgment that sasquatches are extant. In doing so he underscores how impressive that evidence actually is. This ingenious, insightful approach has increased drastically my personal estimate of the probability that sasquatch is an extant  North American ape...But the book's value goes beyond the topic of sasquatch. Bindernagel illustrates the need to compare hypotheses, a salutary lesson. Most of us have or spare little time to look in depth at every interesting and controversial subject, so it's easy to succumb to a lazy skepticism that accepts hoaxing, say, as an adequate explanation... People who like to think will love this book."

“[The book is] a fine summary of available information, neatly arranged with a lot of insight and sensible deductions.”

Dr George Schaller, author of Year of the Gorilla, and The Mountain Gorilla: Ecology and Behavior

“I find it exciting that, finally, a book has been written that accepts (rather than trying to prove) the existence of the Sasquatch and carefully describes the behavioral characteristics that have been recorded. This book will interest anyone who is fascinated, as I am, by one of the greatest unsolved mysteries in the natural world.”

Dr Jane Goodall, author of In the Shadow of Man, the Chimpanzees of Gombe: Patterns of Behavior


“The book lays out the evidence in just the way a scientifically-minded reader would want to see it. It uses relevant data for comparisons with the Great Apes in a wholly accurate way. The result is that the readers are challenged by the many points of similarity between sasquatch anatomy and behaviour [and that of the Great Apes].”

Dr Vernon Reynolds, Institute of Biological Anthropology, Oxford University, author of The Apes: the Gorilla, Chimpanzee, Orangutan and Gibbon

“Dr Bindernagel summarizes over 25 years of investigation, deftly and accurately navigates the primatology literature and draws fascinating parallels that will pique the interest of the specialist and non-specialist alike.”

Dr Jeffrey Meldrum, International Journal of Primatology 21, no.1; February, 2000


"The Discovery of the Sasquatch offers important insights, not only about a potentially uncatalogued species but also about the humans who have thus far declined to investigate it. Bindernagel's scholarship unlocks a door to discovery that was carelessly shut long ago, but now stands wide open, waiting for us to walk through."
