Pioneer Bigfoot/Sasquatch Researcher Mary Green Dies
|A representation of the interactions reported by Mary Green in Monroe County, Tennessee.|
Bigfoot researcher and writer, Mary Green, died this week. She was the first author to publish descriptions of sustained interaction between the hairless humans (us) and the 'forest people' or sasquatch.
To this day, the courageousness and originality of Mary Green's
work is not even close to being recognized by the world at large.
Someday, it will be.
Her book is out of print. If you have a copy, hang onto it! At the time it was published, she was vilified for having been hoodwinked by charlatans. Later, as more cases surfaced continent-wide, the credibility of her work was greatly elevated. To this day, however, there are still those who doubt the validity of the entire 'habituation' scenario. (Ah! Science!). Still, I am proud to say I was communicating and collaborating with Mary Green even before she published. I was one of the very first, along with Will Duncan and Dmitri Bayanov, to call her descriptions 'true fact.'
I learned of a habituation case near Mt. Rainier in Washington that bore striking similarities to the Tennessee situation Mary Green was describing. I published my descriptions only months later in The Locals, which included the first printed endorsement of Mary Green's work. Of course, endorsing Mary Green's work in my own obscure title and getting a wider audience for it were two different things. It was an up-hill battle, to say the least. Still is. Times are changing, but oh, so slowly. Only last week, a four hour interview by a great radio host, Connie Willis, was aired on the famed late-night radio show, Coast to Coast AM. The discussion ranged between verification, habituation, and even communication with the 'forest people' (bigfoots). Mary Green would have been proud. I hope she heard it.

Here is an excerpt from her book, Fifty Years with Bigfoot which neatly summarizes Mary Green's view:
"From the beginning of my research on reported living hominoids, it has been my desire to bring forth the truth about the bigfoot or sasquatch, which I became most certain dwelled here in our remote mountains and woodlands of Tennessee. My first thoughts about what the bigfoot were and what I have since discovered them to actually be has changed dramatically in the last two years. Perhaps by sharing Janice Carter Coy's observations on their behavior in their own habitat, a skeptical world can be awakened to the surety of their existence"
(50 Years with Bigfoot, by Mary Green 2002, p.3).
And here are some observation on Mary Green by Russian author/researcher Dmitri Bayanov, who is, in case you did not know, the world's greatest hominologist (bigfoot researcher):
"A skeptical world has not awakened yet. Why? Because hominology is a science not normal but revolutionary (in full accord with Thomas Kuhn's teaching)...As a result, still not a dollar is spent by world science on research into evidence of existence of living uncatalogued hominids on earth. Instead we hear this: "ExoMars 2016 mission underway. Breaking News. Massive spacecraft launched toward Mars. Its rover will search for evidence of martian life, past or present.""Isn't the World Science Establishment a madhouse as long as the worldwide existence of "wildmen" is ignored? My answer to the question why I believe what is said by Mary and Janice in their book was this:
"Because Janice, who tells the story, has confided to me such details of the bigfoots' anatomy and behavior which she had nowhere to learn from but in actual close observations of the creatures. We do know a number of cases in Russia and North America of close interactions between homins and humans, but, to my knowledge, it's the first time such interactions are described first hand so circumstantially. Paradoxically, this book written by two lay persons, turns, if I may say so, a new page and opens a new chapter in the science of man and man's origin."
"Like Mary's, my thoughts about sasquatches and homins in general have also changed dramatically after learning the story and evidence presented by Janice because there was no longer ground to doubt the veracity of Albert Ostman's story and some stories of close interactions in Russia.
Wishes of peace and good luck to all." Dmitri Bayanov
