The Bigfoot Influencers

Compelling and Candid Conversations with Researchers, Scientists, and Investigators

By Tim Halloran

Compelling and Candid Conversations with Researchers, Scientists, and Investigators.

"I'm always struck by an eyewitness who will comment on the fact how amazingly rapidly this creature receded or climbed up a slope. There was one who said, 'it would have taken me forty-five minutes to get up to that ridge top. And this thing did it in ten'" - Dr. Jeff Meldrum

"It's a Mystery that hardly no one gives evidence and no one studies it… for the most part. When sightings happen, most people clam up. When evidence is presented, the scientists clam up." - Doug Hajicek

"The scientific method is about observation, that's where it begins. One begins with an observation and from that emerges some sort of hypothesis." - Daryl Colyer

"I'm more confident now about the Patterson Gimlin Film than when I was a 10 or 11-year-old back in the late 60s. That confidence is based on data and analysis, not just first impressions." - Dr. Jeff Meldrum

"The question of Bigfoot is a complicated one. All of science deals with reality, whether it's physics or chemistry, every science deals with it." - Dr. Esteban Sarmiento

"These anecdotes Span the entire globe, involving hundreds of different cultures explaining the same phenomenon by different names, so at some point you have to, even as a scientist, say, 'Well, there's got to be something.'" - Les Stroud

Praise for the Bigfoot Influencers

"What goes through the mind, and what motivates a person to devote so much time and effort to solving a mystery 80 per cent of the population tells them is nothing more than folklore. Tim Halloran tries to answer those questions with this book.” - Thomas Steenburg - Veteran Researcher and Historian

"A wonderful collection of information. Tim Halloran brings a cross section of opinions, described experiences and amazing comments from people investigating the sasquatch mystery. This is substantial as it reflects the growing numbers of people pursuing the subject. As more collaborate which seems the current trend, more information surfaces. Thank you, Tim Halloran." - Dan Nedrelo - Biologist

"In recent years much of the news we consume is digital in nature and with the rapid development of social media it didn’t take long for ‘influencers’ to be a byproduct of social media. With his new book Tim Halloran has become one of the first to write about not just the subject of Bigfoot, but those who have come to have a strong influence on the field. You will be delighted by his journalistic effort." - Daniel Perez - Editor of the Bigfoot Times Newsletter

"Great book to add to your Bigfoot collection. I may be a little biased. I know most of the influencers. Tim Halloran did an excellent job. It is a must-have book." - William Morris

"Terrific interviews with the Movers and Shakers of the Bigfoot World!
In this first volume of what promises to be a series, Tim Halloran has managed to encapsulate some of the more unique personalities of the Bigfoot field. From school teachers (Amy Bue) to musicians/authors (Lyle Blackburn); from audio analysts (David Ellis) to Conference organizers (Marc Dewerth), and from chiropractors (Russ Jones) to Track and Field enthusiasts (Daniel Perez), Tim has truly only scratched the surface of the Bigfoot Researchers' paradigm. He even managed to interview Les Stroud, who had some very interesting and candid things to say about being considered a Bigfoot Researcher. Dr. Jeff Meldrum gets quite a bit of content in the book, with a wide-ranging interview. But not only are their interviews with researchers but there are also QR codes throughout the book where those with smartphones and QR scanners can access additional material. I truly enjoyed this book and am looking forward to more books in this series. This one gets a perfect 10 out of 10!" - Henry B. May IV
