Time for a review of one of the first cryptozoology books of 2016. Today, I'm reviewing Monster Trek: The Obsessive Search for Bigfoot by Joe Gisondi.
Monster Trek is very similar to Tea Krulos' Monster Hunters from last year - it focuses on the investigators themselves instead of the creatures. This time, though, it isn't on all types of creatures - this book focuses on everyone's favorite ape-man, Bigfoot.
Each chapter of Gisondi's book focuses on a different place/expedition he has been on. Gisondi describes his trips to mountains in Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Wyoming, the Green Swamp in Florida, Salt Fork State Park in Ohio, and other places throughout the United States. Just like in Monster Hunters, the book is pretty much Bigfooters' personal stories. Gisondi interviews many investigators around the country, including big names such as Matt Moneymaker, Cliff Barackman, and Jeff Meldrum.
I found this book very interesting, because, to me, at least, hearing about the lives of Bigfooters and their personal opinions is just as interesting as reading a book full of stories of encounters. I would definitely recommend this book. Both believers and skeptics will enjoy it.
