Review: Bigfoot! – The True Story Of Apes In America

I’ve been interested in “Bigfoot” since I was a kid and saw the Patterson-Gimlin film of a female Bigfoot casually walking by a creek. In fact, deep in Oregon’s coast range my friend and I were screamed at repeatedly by a large animal – but more on that later. So of course I began to […]
