Scientist sure Bigfoot exists writes kid’s book with Sasquatch existence at core

A Bigfoot-fascinated journalist and author has written a scientific book for kids about sasquatches.

Laura Krantz's new book, The Search for Sasquatch, is aimed at children aged eight to 12 and looks to find the balance between hunting the possible beast and science.

The US reporter hosts the Wild Thing podcast, which dedicated the entire first season of its release to the matter of Bigfoot.

It too similarly looked at the relationship between society and science.

Speaking to NPR about the new book she said: “For me, it was sort of this question: How can you hold on to being a scientist and also onto this idea of Bigfoot at the same time?

"And that's really what kicked off this exploration. Like, what kind of evidence do we have? What kind of information is out there? Does anything stand up to rigorous scientific exploration and investigation?"

She wants to apply science to something often based on myth and history and see if she can find out if there is anything real in it.

"I approach this from the standpoint of: Bigfoot is a flesh and blood creature, the same as anything else on this Earth. It's not magical. It doesn't have superpowers.

“And what I'm kind of hoping to encourage the readers to do, is say, 'OK, this is a really interesting idea. How can we look at this logically? How can we look at this through the lens of science?'"

Krantz's methods come as a big contrast to many of the more ground-level approaches to finding Bigfoot.

Online, countless beginner’s guides to hunting sasquatch encourage people to look for signs and sounds of the fabled monsters like howels, footprints and snapped saplings.

According to 5280, some ‘advanced techniques’ encourage the use of “Tree knocks,” “leaving gifts,” getting “recordings” and going on “night hunts.”
