Tyler's Cryptozoo Best Bigfoot Books

*This is a re-post of an earlier post.*

Recently, Loren Coleman posted what he thought were the 50 best Bigfoot Books of all time on his blog CryptoZooNews.

 Doug Waller from SOSBI posted what were his favorite Bigfoot books on the SOSBI facebook page the other day because many of them were not on Loren's list.

So, I have decided to also make a list of some of my favorite Bigfoot books. And please remember, this is just my personal opinion out of what books I have read about Bigfoot. I don't want to start any arguments.

So, There you go. This is the list of some of my favorite Bigfoot books, and it will be updated over time. I know that some of the authors on the list (including Loren Coleman, Doug Waller, Joedy Cook, Lyle Blackburn, Thom Powell, and Jeff Meldrum) are working on more books about Bigfoot. Those books will probably be added someday, and maybe one of mine will, too!
