This book is the republication of the authors earlier work of the same title. It covers Steenburg’s investigations of the ongoing Sasquatch question in the Province of Alberta from 1979 until 2002, when he moved to the lower mainland of British Columbia. Reports continue to this day. And the main question still persists- Does the Sasquatch indeed exist? And does the creature live in the forest mountains of Canada’s Wild Rose province? Steenburg believes so, and so do the many Albertans who believe they have seen it.

About the author

THOMAS STEENBURG went directly from high school into the Canadian Army. He served with the Princess Patricia Canadian Light Infantry, 1st Battalion, Calgary Alberta. He interest in the sasquatch extends back to his childhood and in 1979 he commenced highly active research in Alberta. After leaving the army in 1986, he went on to author three books on sasquatch sightings and incidents in both Alberta and British Columbia. He moved to Mission, British Columbia in 2003 primary to facilitate conducting personal sasquatch research in this province. Tom has made many presentations at sasquatch symposiums and is highly regarded in the field of sasquatch studies as a down to earth researcher. He is one of the few researchers who actively purses evidence of the creature in its wilderness domain. An entry on Tom's activities is included in this volume under Tributes - Canadian and American Researchers. Thomas Steenburg has been fascinated with these creatures and cryptozoology in general since he was a child. He has been actively researching the mystery since 1978. This is Thomas' third book on the subject; he is also the author of Bigfoot-Sasquatch: The Continuing Mystery, another Hancock House title. Thomas will persist in his pursuit of the sasquatch until the question of their existence has been answered, one way or the other.

Editorial Reviews

In 1978 Investigator Thomas Steenburg began looking into reports of large, hairy, manlike creatures in what is known as the Wild Rose Country, also known as the Province of Alberta, Canada. He investigated reports there from 1979-2002, and in 1989 decided to write a book about his then-new venture into the world of Sasquatch research. The book was released in 1990 by Western Publishers Company, and did not take long to go into the rare territory as it became very hard to find (the author is fortunate enough to have his own copy). Well now Hancock House has released a revised and updated edition that has not changed much from the original edition but has an updated section of reports that he collected since the publication of the original book, reports that go from 1991 up to basically present day. If you have read Sasquatch-Bigfoot: The Continuing Mystery (which was basically a revised edition of his first book, also published by Hancock House, in 1993), then you have read this book. BUT that does not take away from this being a welcome addition to anyone's Cryptozoology bookshelf-I, for one, am glad this was re-released. Steenburg's no-nonsense, stick to the facts and never deviate from the facts demeanor and approach is one sorely needed with Sasquatch investigations, and it is reflected in his writings as well. I HIGHLY recommend purchasing all of Steenburg's publications, all published by Hancock House, but this one in particular because it was his first. This one gets a perfect 10 out of 10!
