"Outstanding, highly recommended! Eric Penz's fast-paced novel, with its micro-textbook on Gigantopithecus, was an easy pick for my Top Books of 2005." -Loren Coleman, author of Bigfoot! The True Story of Apes in America. The line between history and legend can be deceptively thin-too thin perhaps to maintain the claim that one is exclusively fact and one fiction. Such may be the case with the history of Lewis and Clark. For the fact is that two hundred years after they were handpicked by Thomas Jefferson to lead an extraordinary expedition to the Pacific coast legends still persist regarding unexplained gaps in the explorers' field journals. Call it legend, call it history, Cryptid tells the riveting story of conspiracy theorists who have new evidence of a centuries-old cover-up. When a cryptozoologist, a paleontologist, and a Jefferson descendant begin connecting the dots, they threaten to do more than unveil the well-guarded scientific discovery that lies at the heart of the ancient secret; they threaten to rewrite American history. That is if they can survive a conspiracy that dates back to the Founding Fathers-the very same that haunted Lewis to his grave. It may be that one of our nation's first secrets is still being kept. Cryptid illustrates how the human act of seeking the truth can be the very element that destroys it. Two centuries in the making, Cryptid is the final chapter of the Lewis and Clark story. And, as with any good tale, the best secrets have been kept until the end.

A Reading the West Longlist Pick for 2018 The Cryptid Catcher is the first book in a monstrously fun middle-grade duology by Lija Fisher about a boy who inherits a job hunting legendary creatures. After Clivo Wren's archaeologist father dies mysteriously, the newly orphaned thirteen-year-old finds out the truth: his dad was no archaeologist. He was actually a cryptid catcher, known for finding elusive beasts like the bloodsucking chupacabra. His goal: discover the one extraordinary cryptid whose blood grants immortality—before the knowledge falls into the wrong hands. The mission remains unfinished, and now there's only one person who can take the renowned cryptid catcher's place: Clivo. He may not know the first thing about monster hunting, but he's willing to give it a try—because anything beats staying home with his salsa-crazy aunt and her neurotic cats.

Does a hulking, hairy, 800-pound, nine-foot-tall, elusive primate roam the woods and forests throughout North America—and the world? What should we make of the grainy videos and photos and the thousands of eyewitness reports? Audio-recordings exist purporting to be the creatures’ eerie chatter and bone-chilling screaming. Whether called Sasquatch, Yeti, Bigfoot, or something else, bipedal primates appear in folklore, legends, and eyewitness accounts in every state of the union and many places around the world. The fascination with the man-beast is stronger than ever in today’s pop culture. Exploring the history, movies, and literature, the conspiracy theorizing, and the world of the supernatural, The Encyclopedia of Sasquatch, Yeti and Cryptid Primates is a comprehensive resource to the man-beast. With nearly 200 entries and 120 photographs, drawings, and illustrations, it is the definitive guide to understanding, hunting, and avoiding the brute, as well as discovering the facts behind the sightings and horrifying tales. It covers 400 years of folklore, mythology, history, and pop culture, including Native American lore, the “wild men” reports in the pages of 19th century-era American newspapers, Florida's Myakka Skunk Ape, Australia's Yowie, China's Yeren, Himalayas’ Yeti, Russian expeditions, Harry and the Hendersons, Exists and the countless movies titled Bigfoot, as well as specials on the television shows Animal Planet, Discovery Channel and National Geographic Channel, scientific reports and findings, and much, much more. Various documentaries and reality television shows have all superficially tackled the subject, but Nick Redfern presents a truly encyclopedic look at cryptid primates. It is a richly researched reference, overflowing with fascinating information to make readers think—and reconsider their next camping trip.

Even if you don't know the word "cryptozoology," you know some pretty famous cryptids already although you may not realize it. Creatures like Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster, and the Abominable Snowman are a huge part of our pop culture references, a fact that does make them more or less, "real." Most people have some idea of what these creatures "look" like and some understanding of their backstory. What you may not realize, however, is that there are all kinds of allegedly unknown creatures around the world. And there are lots of people who spend a great deal of time looking for evidence to prove that these animals really do exist. That's what cryptozoology is all about and, thanks to the Internet, this endeavor can be either an active or an armchair hobby. Rex Cutty, author of Zombie Apocalypse: A Survival Guide and Vampire Apocalypse: Know Your Enemy - A Survival Guide, takes on the topic of cryptozoology from the standpoint of a long-time, highly interested bystander. In this basic introductory guide to the world of cryptozoology, you'll meet some of the most famous cryptids in the business, learn about their origins, and develop an understanding of good evidence versus clever hoaxes. Written in Cutty's trademark breezy and wisecracking style, be prepared to laugh in places and to pause in others and wonder, "Dang, could that thing be real?" Cryptozoology, lake creatures, sea creatures, Bigfoot, cryptid canines, flying cryptids, and much more all covered!
