Book Review: Bigfoot: The Life and Times of a Legend by Joshua Blu Buhs

Pretty terrific Skeptical Book

This book, by author Blu Buhs, is really well-written and well-done, and it tends to take the skeptical tack, of course, giving a history of some of the major players in the Bigfoot field and some behind-the-scenes information on each. The author definitely is not of the opinion that there is a Sasquatch, but he does tend to take a more objective tack than Michael McLeod did or David Daegling. Buhs is not skeptical for the sake of being skeptical, and he is certainly not a scoftic-he just wants to see if there is any presentable evidence for the Sasquatch. He does somewhat say that Bigfoot is "dead" only in the sense of no good reliable (in his mind) evidence, but he does say that Bigfoot "lives" in advertisements and pop culture. I would most assuredly recommend this book. 4 stars.
