提要:
Joshua Blu Buhs traces the wild and woolly story of America's favourite homegrown monster. Writing with a scientist's scepticism, but an enthusiast's deep engagement, Buhs invests the story of Bigfoot with the detail and power of a novel, while at the same time explaining why the monster has inspired such a devoted following.
