KATHMANDU, Oct 24: ‘Yetis Sasquatch & Hairy Giants’, a book authored by David Hatcher Childress, was launched here in Pilgrims Book House, Thamel on Saturday.
Amidst a large enthusiastic crowd, the author showcased a slideshow and briefed about the book, which revolves around the history and myth of the legend known as Yeti.
“Bigfoot, Sasquatch, skunk apes or Yetis have been very famous in the past through myths and their activities in the wild, and I have compiled this book from my research, not only in Nepal but the whole world,” he expressed.
The book, according to the author, is an investigation spanning over 20 years.
“There have been many instances of people coming in contact with Yetis in the Himalayan area of Nepal, Pakistan, India and Bhutan in Asia; also in the US and Poland, thus there is substantial proof that they exist,” he added.
Childress, who has published more than 25 books on various subjects, finds the topic of the Yeti very alluring.
“I firmly believe that the Yeti is real, and I hope to find more evidence to support my thesis,” he added.
I am very much thankful to Childress for collecting lots of information about Yeti. I also think that the mystery will be unravelled one day. Reported cases of yeti sightings in differnt place at different times can not be only myths. Best of luck Childress for further explorations.
