Book Review: Voices In The Wilderness by Ron Morehead

Absolutely compelling account of 40 years of seeking answers to one of our greatest mysteries

This book, which also comes with an accompanying CD to complement the descriptions of various sounds, is perhaps one of the better books on the Sasquatch phenomena I have read this year. Ron Morehead is the founder and proprietor of Bigfoot Sounds, or Bigfoot Recordings ( and began his interest in this subject in the early-70's when his friend Bill McDowell told him of some unusual vocalizations being heard in a remote wilderness camp in the High Sierras of California. Upon investigation, Ron found that there was indeed something unusual going on in that area, along with several other unusual happenings, most of which do not seem to be related to Sasquatch activity, but are unusual in and of themselves. Ron, along with McDowell, Warren and Louis Johnson invited Alan Berry, a newspaper journalist, to come in and investigate, and Al recorded some amazing sounds, as did Ron and his group, sounds which were later analyzed by Dr. R. Lynn Kirlin and found to not be artificially made or manufactured otherwise or pre-recorded. Ron would often take his family members into the camp, most notably his daughter Rhonda, who had a couple of sightings herself. Ron eventually sought out another opinion on the recordings, after releasing two volumes of CDs which have been alternately known as the Bigfoot Recordings or the Sierra Sounds. That opinion was that of former Naval Crypto-Linguist R. Scott Nelson, who began looking into these sounds in around 2008, and released a report which shocked the Bigfoot Community-these creatures were speaking a LANGUAGE!!!!!! Unknown, to be sure, but still a language. Nelson's findings have been of great interest to a lot of Bigfoot researchers and enthusiasts, and some who have made recordings of their own of strange vocalizations have sent their recordings to Nelson for his expert opinion. Ron also takes Nelson on a few trips to the area where he obtained the original recordings in the '70's, but there has been one disaster after the other which enabled them to only stay a few days there at best. However, Ron did hear sounds, which confirmed to him that the creatures are still there, even after all this time. He concludes the book with some rather interesting theories as to what these beings are, not all of which I agree with, but Ron makes interesting arguments for his case as to these various theories, and I respect his right to his opinion. Overall, this is a great book, now in its Second Edition, and if one owns the CD's Ron produced in the mid-90's and early-00's, this book and those CD's give a fairly complete picture of what he experienced in his times in that remote hunting camp. There are also some great (and rare) photographs throughout the book which really enhance the reading experience, most in color. I give this book a perfect 10 out of 10. Really enjoyable and compelling.

Alexis Rockman’s Map of Cryptozoology

Scientific American aims its skeptical eye in Nessie's direction and remarks on all of the most famous photographs taken of the supposed deep water creature, but fails to coax forth any new arguments against the creature's existence and instead falls back on the same skeptical points that have been tossed around for as long as Nessie's been caught on film. Even more reclusive distant cousins of Nessie's may reside in the deep, dark jungles of the Congo and Micah Hanks describes a couple of them, including the infamous river-dwelling mokele mbembe and the Emela Ntouka, or The Horned Elephant Killer of the Congo.

SquatchIt to Be Featured at Minnesota Iceman Event at The Museum of the Weird in Austin Texas on July 13 2013

Craig Woolheater will be showing off the SquatchIt prototype on July 13, 2013 during the special Minnesota Iceman unveiling.
Is this a black panther or an overgrown domestic cat stalking across this field in Louisiana? The general consensus is that it's just a cat with the perspective thrown off by zooming in, but it is extremely difficult to tell because, as Jay Cooney shows us, the body structure and posture is identical to a panther's. In other cryptid news, Loren Coleman reports that Marc Myrsell of Dark Waters Paranormal Group in Washington State claims that his group has discovered the remains of the 1924 Ape Canyon Site,where an extraordinary encounter with Sasquatch took place back in 1924. The so-called ape-men attacked a group of miners, tried to break into their cabin and threw rocks at them. In return, the miners shot and supposedly killed one of the creatures. Myrsell says that his group found physical evidence of the old campsite including nails, spoons and the side of the cabin and, and...that's where his story ends for now. As the commercial says, "We want more! We want more!"

Joe Rogan Questions Everything

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on July 8th, 2013
Rogan is open-minded but values facts and truths over ideology. He gave me a five-minute primer on gigantopithecus and Homo floresiensis.
“There are real, legit anthropologists who believe in Sasquatch,” Rogan says.
But some true believers in Sasquatch and UFOs ignore contradictory facts and evidence of hoaxes.
“They only see things that confirm their idea. It’s called ‘confirmation bias.’ It’s a real problem with people and ideas,” Rogan says.
“Some people just get it in their mind there is a bigfoot, and then every time some dude in a monkey suit takes a blurry picture, they’re convinced it’s the best Sasquatch footage ever.”
