Book Review: The Monster Trilogy Guidebook by Peter Byrne

Really well-written and practical field guide

This book, clocking in at just under 180 pages, really gives some great tips on how to survive in rugged country when searching for either Sasquatch or the Yeti, and also how to see the Loch Ness Monster. He tells the reader what to wear for cold temperatures (which applies especially in the high Himalayas), what kind of equipment to take, what kind of boots to wear and what camping equipment to use. Not a whole lot of specialized equipment is needed to see Nessie other than perhaps a camper to observe and a good vehicle to get there. I do disagree with Peter's notion that Sasquatch only exists in the Pacific Northwest, but this book is written with the wisdom of years of experience searching for these mystery cryptids. There are also some beautiful rare color photos, many never seen before, which truly enhance the book as a whole. I give this one a 9 3/4 out of 10 stars.
