4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas A good book, but one in need of polish 22 de septiembre de 2010
Por David - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Tapa blanda|Compra verificada por Amazon
"Yetis, Sasquatch & Hairy Giants" is certainly worth the money for anyone, particularly a newcomer, who is interested in the obvious topics. It is loaded with various modern accounts and theories, as well as old world tales regarding the cryptids in question. That said, this is by no means a book taken in neutral stance, and the author even goes so far as to hint at a connection between extraterrestrials and bigfoot.

Another point that I feel needs clarifying is the perspective of the book: it is not a collection of the authors adventures as some may hope for from a "Modern Day Indiana Jones". It is a chronicle with some speculation attached. That isn't per se a bad thing, however, as there is an extensive bibliography full of sources that may interest some.

Unfortunately, for all the data within, the entire book is marred by typographical errors ranging from spelling to obvious doubletakes in thought. For instance, errors such as "One major sighting was reported in listed by the XXXXXX Newspaper" are common place. The author clearly changed his approach but did not delete his earlier typing.

The good news is that typos are not so common as to make reading painful, which is important to note seeing as you get around 375 pages of materiel plus additional imagery and source files. For comparable books, that is A LOT of product. And to that end I say this one is a winner; a winner with goofy cover art, predictable grammar trouble, and a somewhat far out take on what many consider to be a far out topic, but a winner nonetheless.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Essential reading for anyone with an interest in the subject 15 de marzo de 2010
Por Midwest Book Review - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Tapa blanda
Indiana Jones may be fictional, but David Hatcher Childress is most definitely not. An author and adventurer, Childress' latest contribution to metaphysical literature is "Yetis, Sasquatch & Hairy Giants", a 400-page compendium accounting his decades-long search for yeti in Nepal, Sikkim, Bhutan, and the Himalayas, as well as his considerable research into sightings and evidences of North America's fabled Bigfoot, Sasquatch, and 'Skunk Apes'. Profusely illustrated (including a special color photo section), "Yetis, Sasquatch & Hairy Giants" is from first page to last, as informative a read as it is engaging. Enhanced with the inclusion of an extensive bibliography, "Yetis, Sasquatch & Hairy Giants" is essential reading for anyone with an interest in the subject, and would make a popular and thoroughly 'reader friendly' addition to academic and community library collections.

2.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Fun, but not well edited. 12 de agosto de 2013
Por James Dendy - Publicado en Amazon.com

"Yetis, Sasquatch & Hairy Giants" is a fun read. There was obviously not a lot of attention paid to the editing, as there are several pages that have lines of text that are all smashed together with no spaces. Sort of like this: "thereareseveralpagesthathavelinesoftextthatareallsmashedtogetherwithnospaces". If you can get past this, and the author's opinion at the end of each chapter, such as, "...so I think these 3 anecdotal accounts of hairy giants constitutes definitive proof of the existence of X in the region of X ", then I think you will enjoy the book. There were a lot of good anecdotal stories about Yetis, Sasquatches, and other hairy giants from all over the globe, which is the main reason I like the subject, not necessarily the "hard proof" and facts, although there is some of this as well. All in all, it isn't going to change the skeptics minds by any stretch of the imagination, but does add a little to the overall big picture for the armchair enthusiast. About what you might expect from the "Adventures Unlimited Press".

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas This really was a fun read 20 de enero de 2013
Por Kenneth R. Barnwell - Publicado en Amazon.com

Like the title says, this book isnt just about bigfoot. It is a history of all things 2-legged and BIG. There are some really fasacinating stories told in this book, a lot of stuff that I had never personally read before,(and isnt that why we buy these kinds of books? For new and interesting stories?) From Biblical giants to modern Bigfoot & Yeti sightings, it covers an amazing amount of ground on the subject. And even though there are a lot of reports and stories presented, they are done in a nice writing style that keeps your attention. Unlike a lot of books on this subject, it does not read like one long news article. The author only seemed to go over the deep-end on one occasion, when he postulated that the government may be genetically cloning bigfoot to help discredit ufo sightings.....lol. Aside from this one wacky instance the book is a fabulously entertaining read, and who knows....he may just be right about those cloned sasquatches running amuk! If your a bigfoot fan then you really cant go wrong with this one, lots of stories, lots of pics and illustrations and a total blast of a read!

I was really looking for a book that gave supporting evidence linking Neanderthal and Yeti's-this was more of a collection of stories from mainly Asia, some from other parts. Not much other than that. There are A LOT of stories. I love David Hatcher Childress, thus the 4 stars, otherwise I would have given it much less as there is little scientific fact.
