Matts was very thoughtful in his compilation of this book, giving the reader a step by step introduction to Bigfoot research, creature characteristics and behavioral traits.
Since the 1894 report that a “Wildman” with a club was seen traveling
through Morris County, strange creatures resembling Bigfoot have been
reported in New Jersey. The Pine Barrens, 1.1 million acres covering
parts of seven different counties and 22% of the entire state, has been
a rich source for glimpses of the legend. Many other parts of the state
have been visited by Bigfoot as well. In this book, WR Matts documents
68 of these recorded sightings from all across the Garden State.
Matts also provides three comprehensive reports about his own research
in High Point State Park and Wharton State Forest. He explains his personal
methodology, the success of which led him to encounter one eight-foot
creature at the Godfrey Bridge Campground in the Pine Barrens.
Other chapters of the book discuss how studies of Bigfoot are evolving
with the realization that these intelligent creatures can avoid current
research methods such as camera traps and call blasting. Recent reports
of long-term habituation experiences seem to point in the direction of
using Bigfoot’s natural curiosity as a more effective way to make contact.
I recommend this book for your collection and also to give as a gift to someone who may be new in the field of research to use as a guideline.
