BIGFOOT ON THE EAST COAST
by Rick Berry
Many people find it easier to accept that something like Bigfoot is real if it isnt happening in their own backyard. For instance, if you live in New York, you might laugh at someone who said they encountered a big smelly monster in Kinderhook, while accepting an identical report from a logger in Oregon. Perhaps its because we cant admit that we wouldnt know about it if it was in our own stomping grounds. Maybe were just more likely to believe strangers. Whatever the reason, distance lends credibility.
If youre on
the East Coast, Rick Berrys recent book may shake that only
on the West Coast attitude. He has assembled over one thousand sightings
from fifteen eastern states, and given each one about a paragraph. All
of the familiar characteristics found in Northwestern reports are here,
from glowing eyes to putrid smells. If you accept those, there is no reason
to reject these.There certainly are
some interesting things in these reports, whether you read it cover to
cover or just browse. It appears that the Eastern Bigfoot is not so streetwise
as its Western equivalent
there are several reports of car/creature
Still, a lot of effort has been put into this book, and it does fill a gap in the literature, and the author is to be commended for taking on the challenge.
