This is The Big Book of Yetis. What the reader gets here is a world-class Oxford geneticist's search for evidence for the existence of Bigfoot, yeti, or the abominable snowman. Along the way, he visits sites of alleged sightings of these strange creatures, attends meetings of cryptozoologists, recounts the stories of famous monster-hunting expeditions, and runs possible yeti DNA through his highly regarded lab at Oxford. Sykes introduces us to the crackpots, visionaries, and adventurers who have been involved in research into this possible scientific dead-end over the past 100 years. Sykes is a serious scientist who knows how to tell a story, and this is a credible and engaging account. Almost, but not quite human, the yeti and its counterparts from wild regions of the world still exert a powerful atavistic influence on us. Is the yeti just a phantasm of our imagination or a survivor from our own savage ancestry? This is the mystery that Bryan Sykes sets out to unlock.
…you’re talking about a yeti or bigfoot or sasquatch. Well now, you'll be amazed when I tell you that I'm sure they exist. —Jane Goodall on NPR
