"What is Bigfoot?"
Talkin' Bigfoot on KGW-TV: A Televised Interview with Joe Beelart and Thom Powell
Here is a link to a televised interview with two local Portland authors of separate book on paranormal and or bigfoot topics. Joe Beelart wrote the Oregon Bigfoot Highway, published in 2015. It is the most detailed and authoritative book ever written on a specific locality, the Clackamas River basin, and the bigfoot encounters that have occurred within its confines.
If Joe's work is essentially a book on where to find bigfoot, Thom Powell's new book, also published in 2015, might best be described as a book that addresses one key question: "What is Bigfoot?"
Most of the four minute interview focuses on Joe's research in the Clackamas River basin. Thom's contribution is to present a list of the possible answers to the central question. Sorry, but if you want a definitive answer, you'll have to buy a copy of Edges of Science. The answer is in there. Here is a link to a page where signed copies of Edges can be ordered directly from the author.
