Bigfoot: The Life and Times of a Legend

Buhs contends that Bigfoot is a construct of popular imagination representing a "tradition of the wild man " that "allowed white working-class men" to hold onto traditional, masculine roles while societal changes feminism and civil rights in the s and s "challenged their assumptions about society". Buhs provides a historical accounting of Bigfoot encounters, including purported sightings and abductions. Barnum , [14] Grover Krantz , [5] Ivan Sanderson , [6] and others who researched, looked for, and, in some cases, faked Bigfoot sightings or exploited the idea of Bigfoot for their own gain. Buhs also outlines how the commercialization of Bigfoot, through the sale of commercial products B-movies, T-shirts, TV shows, whiskey advertisements , transformed Bigfoot, once feared, into a creature to be ridiculed. Environmentalism, Buhs posits, changed Bigfoot into a gentle giant.

Last August, two men in rural Georgia announced that they had killed Bigfoot. The claim drew instant, feverish attention, leading to more than 1, news stories worldwide—despite the fact that nearly everyone knew it was a hoax. Buhs delves deeply into the trove of lore and misinformation that has sprung up around Bigfoot in the ensuing half century.

Like many amateurs he secretly yearned to be an academic and live the life of an erudite scholar, but felt hurt, embittered, frustrated, and resentful of those who did: especially when most of them dismissed him.
