Bigfoot…Fact or Fiction? Read this book before you choose!
From recent footprints to ghostly figures painted on stone centuries ago, Backyard Bigfoot presents startling evidence that the hairy creatures who lurk in our world’s backcountry represent greater than a figment of our collective imagination. Bigfoot expert Lisa A. Shiel lays out the evidence — physical and folkloric, ancient and modern — to prove that Bigfoot and its kin everywhere in the world stand closer to us than we ever imagined.
If you are a newcomer to the topic, you’ll learn valuable facts because the author guides you thru the mine field of theories, counter-theories, and assumptions about Bigfoot. Knowledgeable researchers will discover a treasure trove of little-known evidence and typically taboo concepts. In perfect detail, Shiel lays out her singular and astonishing revelations about Bigfoot, gleaned from years of research — both in the sector and in the historical archives. Joining her odyssey, you’ll explore:
- Stick signs, purposeful symbols created with sticks and other material;
- Mane braiding, where intricate braids appear in horses’ manes overnight;
- Predominant Bigfoot theories, and why they do not fit the facts;
- UFO-Bigfoot connection details typically dismissed by academic pedagogues; and
- Distorted human history and the way it affects our perceptions of the Bigfoot enigma.
From real human progression to lost civilizations, from UFOs to ancient artwork, Shiel weaves disparate threads into one incredible yet thoroughly believable theoretical tapestry – and leaves you breathless.
