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.

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 tried to find some positive information or facts within the pages but couldn't get past the vulgarity and the belittling with which Blaine repeatedly describes the other participants many of whom trusted and looked up to him while attending the expeditions. It is precisely this condescending attitude that taints most if this book, other than the fact that it is mostly filled with mundane and pedestrian descriptions and rants about fast food restaurants, coin operated showers and newbies. There is precious little actual new Bigfoot information in this book and I feel more than a little embarrassed to have included it amongst other Sasquatch books in my library and I cannot with any conscience recommend it to other serious Sasquatch enthusiasts.
