Origins of the Yeti, Nessie, and Other Famous Cryptids
Author: Daniel Loxton
Publisher: Columbia University Press
Throughout our history, humans have been captivated by mythic beasts and legendary creatures. Tales of Bigfoot, the Yeti, and the Loch Ness monster are part of our collective experience. Now comes a book from two dedicated investigators that explores and elucidates the fascinating world of cryptozoology. Daniel Loxton and Donald R. Prothero have written an entertaining, educational, and definitive text on cryptids, presenting the arguments both for and against their existence and systematically challenging the pseudoscience that perpetuates their myths. After examining the nature of science and pseudoscience and their relation to cryptozoology, Loxton and Prothero take on Bigfoot; the Yeti, or Abominable Snowman, and its cross-cultural incarnations; the Loch Ness monster and its highly publicized sightings; the evolution of the Great Sea Serpent; and Mokele Mbembe, or the Congo dinosaur. They conclude with an analysis of the psychology behind the persistent belief in paranormal phenomena, identifying the major players in cryptozoology, discussing the character of its subculture, and considering the challenge it poses to clear and critical thinking in our increasingly complex world.
While the woods of North America have Bigfoot, the snowy Himalayan mountains of central Asia are home to the legendary Yeti. A short, ape-like creature covered in white hair, the Yeti, also known as the abominable snowman, has been vexing explorers and locals for generations. Readers will follow the development of the Yeti's lore as well as encounter possible scientific explanations for its existence. They will follow stories of climbing mountains, smuggling artifacts, and testing DNA evidence, all of which have led to more questions than answers. Although the Yeti calls such a remote area of the world home, readers will learn how far the cryptid's reach is in pop culture as well as how many efforts there have been to find it.
