He held a Master of Science degree and was responsible for fostering the original study of Bigfoot recordings at the University of Wyoming. In 1971, he was the investigative reporter who was allowed to trek into the Sierra camp, where he had a series of strange encounters with Bigfoot-like creatures. Although he initially thought it might be a hoax, he ultimately could not find any evidence to support this theory.

It includes accounts of unusual Bigfoot sightings, particularly on the west coast of the United States, but also includes a chapter on significant sightings that occurred in Pennsylvania in 1973.
