About the Author

Blaine McMillan was born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and moved to British Columbia in 1972. After high school, he joined the Canadian Armed Forces and proudly served for 27 years as an Aviation Life Support Equipment Specialist with operational postings to CFB Comox, BC, the MFO Base El Gorah, Egypt and CFB Winnipeg, MB. While in Winnipeg, Blaine enrolled in the University of Manitoba where he completed a Bachelor's degree in Criminology. In 2003, Blaine retired from the Canadian Armed Forces and returned to Vancouver Island with his wife Irene and two sons, Bowen and Kamryn. Blaine's interest in the sasquatch first began in the early 1970's. His search for this elusive creature began in 2005. In 2006, Blaine began investigating incidents submitted to the BFRO focusing on and completing reports from Canada's four western provinces. In 2007, Blaine was the lead organizer for the first BFRO expedition on Vancouver Island. In the years that followed he has directed two more expeditions and has continued to have an active role in researching the sasquatch phenomena in Western Canada.

4.0 out of 5 stars What the f#%$ Sept. 2 2014
Reply to Steve H, welcome to military interaction. I worked with Blaine in Winnipeg for two years, he was always truthful and directly to the point. The language is just one of the side effects of a 27 year military career. I plan to read Blaine's book and know it will be riveting.

Just finished the book and found the writing very well done. I was picked up at the beginning and carried along seamlessly, thoroughly enjoying the expeditions as Blaine described each so very well. The end section of the book with the pointers on equipment and researching was an incredibly good guide to all who venture out in search of Sasquatch.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very informative and thorough bigfoot book Aug. 15 2014

Mr. McMillan is retired from the Canadian Armed Forces and he also has a Bachelor's degree in criminology. He was involved in BFRO expeditions in 2005, 2006 and 2007. The main part of the book is the author's recollection of these expeditions from his memory. He has changed the name of some of the individuals to protect their anonymity. He gives a lot of description of the events and feelings he had while on these expedtions. Participants of these expeditions can compromise potentially fruitful contact with sasquatches by acting carelessly and selfishly.

He also includes a chapter on helpful tips and tricks to use while on an expedition. As more BFRO expeditions occur, these helpful hints will prepare more investigators to be productive and reduce hassle. Another helpful chapter is entitled, "Investigators, Investigations and Questions." The author also includes a glossary of bigfoot terms, an appendix about wood knocks, and abundant references and endnotes. A foreward by author Christopher Noel is also included.

The three hundred pages of this book are packed solid with a wealth of bigfoot information. I thought it was well-written. My only negative comment is the amount of bad language throughout the book. I think there are more constructive ways to express ourselves while being respectful to those who are offended by bad language. I would caution parents to use discretion. I respectfully encourage authors of bigfoot books to raise their standards to include the use of better language suitable for readers of all ages. Having said this, I still give Mr. McMillan credit for a very informative and thorough bigfoot book. Keep up the good work!

I liked the book a lot . I found it very readable. It was authentic and without embellishment. I used it as a nice relaxing way to de-stress at the end of the day. I recommend it if you are interested in Bigfoot.
