Clearly, a lot of work has gone into Buckeye Beasts (which contains some cool illustrations), and you won't be disappointed by the content. The primary sources of the data in the book are old newspapers, which are often extremely useful when it comes to digging out obscure accounts. It's interesting to note that many of the reports that Tyler refers to and comments on do not sound like Bigfoot. Rather, they come across like descriptions of what can only be termed as hair-covered humans. Other reports, meanwhile, are described as involving creatures that closely resemble gorillas and other apes. In that sense, it appears that we are dealing with two separate phenomena - unless, of course, the witnesses were mistaken. And, there are a few likely hoaxes too - something which Tyler addresses.Read the full review here.
Buckeye Beasts: Historical Accounts of “Gorillas,” “Wild Men,” and Other Hairy Monsters in Ohio is available in paperback and on kindle on Amazon.
