Susan Barron, the author of Foot Notes: Experiences with Sasquatch, 2004-2018, offers readers her personal investigation of the elusive Bigfoot over a number of years. In her home state of Alabama, Susan becomes fascinated by stories of sightings of and encounters with Sasquatch after watching a documentary. She sets out to document a woman and her family’s alleged interactions with certain creatures lurking in the woods around their rural home. Susan is no trained scientist or investigative journalist, but her determination to find physical proof of the existence of Sasquatch takes her into some spooky experiences near and in Alabama’s Talladega National Forest, experiences that take place over nearly fifteen years. Providing some photographs, drawings, and detailed narrations of her own and others’ encounters with mysterious creatures, can Susan convince readers that Sasquatch does indeed exist?

Foot Notes by Susan Barron presents us with evidence she has gathered and claims to have witnessed herself. Her very readable descriptions of what she and others say they have witnessed or heard seem sincere and credible, as do her photographs and drawings. That she believes in her quarry—she states that she has seen two of them—is not only obvious from her words but also from her treks, often alone, into the woods. Despite the skepticism of the scientific community and the antics of crackpots, she finds it difficult to believe that so many individuals, usually in danger of losing their credibility, would claim to have seen or heard a big, hairy creature roaming close by in the wilderness areas of the U.S. Ultimately, what readers choose to believe is their own business, but this is an intriguing and entertaining book that deserves a read.
