Our committed search to uncover the truth about Bigfoot 

Join investigators Tom Burnette and Rob Riggs on their amazing adventure into the wild where the mysterious creature known as Bigfoot dwells. Over the past twenty years, these two men have dedicated themselves to the search for Bigfoot in the Smoky Mountains of North Carolina and the swamplands of Southeast Texas.

Drawing on forty-plus years of combined field study, Tom and Rob present their personal stories, ethnographic research, and educated theories surrounding Bigfoot. Revealing a substantial collection of evidence supporting Bigfoot’s existence, this book provides details of the creature’s history, habitats, and behaviors. With thought-provoking discussions on Bigfoot’s elusiveness and potential psychic powers, Bigfoot goes beyond the myth to the reality of this enigmatic ape-man.

“If you think that monsters aren’t real, it’s time to think again. Tom Burnette and Rob Riggs take us on a roller-coaster ride into a world where the wild things lurk!”—Nick Redfern, author of Three Men Seeking Monsters 

"The speculations will provide Bigfoot enthusiasts with plenty to contemplate, as will Burnette's assertion that he's captured 'the best Bigfoot picture bar none in the world.'"—Publishers Weekly

"[A] well-written and thrilling account of their work. The stories in this book will raise the hair on the back of one's neck and cause sleepless nights, especially if one lives near a big woods." — San Francisco Book Review

It quickly, and famously, became known as the chupacabra. Nick Redfern, author of the new Chupacabra Road Trip, presents three theories that could potentially explain the existence of the mysterious "goat sucker."

Even though sightings of both Bigfoot and UFOs occurring at the same times and places are not uncommonly reported by eyewitnesses, the concurrence of such events is generally dismissed as coincidental, and any possible substantial connection between the two phenomena is not considered a matter of serious inquiry. Rob Riggs and Tom Burnette, co-authors of Bigfoot: Exploring the Myth and Discovering the Truth, discuss the possible connection.

A few years ago, my youngest son was arguing with his friend about the age of Honey, our wild golden retriever. His friend insisted that Honey was five, because the dog had been alive that many years. Said Gabe, "Sometimes Honey is really one, like when he chews our shoes; sometimes he's 89, like when he pretends he's too old to listen when you... read this article
