Is Bigfoot (aka Sasquatch) a descendent of the extinct giant ape Gigantopithecus? Or is it a myth turned pop-culture phenom that we want to believe is real? In this objectively written graded reader, author Bonnie Worth examines the evidence for and against the existence of the alleged ape, including its role in native North American folklore, famous sightings and notorious hoaxes, Dr. Grover Kranz’s work with dermal ridges, the Gigantopithecus theory, the Patterson-Gimlin film, and much, much more. Illustrated with photographs and full-color illustrations, this high-concept easy reader will satisfy both skeptics and true believers.
