Book Review: Appalachian Bigfoot

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Title: The Appalachian Bigfoot

Author: Dr. Russell Jones

Published: December 9, 2021 by Beyond the Fray Publishing

Amazon Purchase Information

The Appalachian Bigfoot is actually the second book by West Virginia author and researcher, Dr. Russell Jones. Following on the heels of Tracking the Stone Man: West Virginia’s Bigfoot (published 2016), The Appalachian Bigfoot is another excellent contribution to the field of cryptozoology.

As I said in my review of his previous book, Bigfoot is a subject that I’m interested in, as I believe all the strange and unusual aspects of the paranormal field are related, but its not a subject that I feel super well-versed in. Therefore, I’m always looking for extremely informative resources written in a way that I can easily digest the information without getting bored. And, The Appalachian Bigfoot was a good fit!

While Dr. Jones’ first book focused on the Bigfoot population of West Virginia, this newest book expands to study Bigfoot throughout the Appalachia region of the United States. Up until recently, much of the Bigfoot research that was published really tended to focus on the Bigfoot population of the Pacific Northwest…and believe it or not, there are some differences between the seemingly same species from across the country. 

The Appalachian Bigfoot is a treasure trove of information on this mysterious beast. Topics range from physical descriptions of these creatures, the best times and locations to witness them, theories about why we don’t yet have proof of their existence, evidence collection, habituation, and much more. Included are case studies featuring the most compelling eyewitnesses reports from around the Appalachian region.

So, I’m not gonna lie—while I enjoyed this book immensely, there were times when it seemed a little…disjointed and repetitive…like it was written in chunks, then kind of hastily put together. However, the information in this book far outweighs that minor problem, if it even IS a problem. While it may seem disjointed to sit and read cover to cover, if you’re looking for a specific topic, or just want to read a little bit at a time, then you’ll never even notice. 

I’m pretty sure that everyone, from the complete novice to the experienced Squatcher, can find value in this book, and its a must-have reference for any cryptozoology library. And, you don’t even really need to live within Appalachia to love this book. The case studies are interesting, no matter where you’re from, and there are enough similarities between these various populations of Bigfoot-type creatures  that the information can be applied outside the region. I was lucky enough to pick up MY personal copy at a local thrift store, but it’s available on Amazon and through most major book stores.
