Bigfoot researcher Lisa A. Shiel exposes the disinformation and strips away the hype in her latest exposé about the cryptozoological phenomenon known as Bigfoot. Shiel tackles the aspects other researchers prefer to ignore in her new book 'Forbidden Bigfoot.'

Past News Releases


For centuries, stunned witnesses have reported face-to-face encounters with the bizarre beasts responsible for mystifying us with the tantalizing evidence they leave behind. Mysterious footprints. Eerie screams. Countless books and documentaries have offered up the same explanation: Bigfoot are nothing more than large, bipedal apes that mainstream science refuses to accept as real.

Truth or disinformation?

Now, Lisa A. Shiel — author of the acclaimed 'Backyard Bigfoot' — presents the uncensored facts about Bigfoot in a meticulously researched, no-holds-barred exploration of the phenomenon. 'Forbidden Bigfoot: Exposing the Controversial Truth about Sasquatch, Stick Signs, UFOs, Human Origins, and the Strange Phenomena in Our Own Backyards' (Jacobsville Books, 2013, ISBN 978-1-934631-29-4) exposes the startling connections between Sasquatch and other unexplained phenomena, from UFOs and fairies to stick signs and crop-circle-like formations.

Rather than regurgitating famous sightings and well-known theories, author Shiel exposes the truth behind the theories through personal interviews with other researchers, in-depth analysis of scientific and anecdotal data, and explorations of the author's personal experiences with Bigfoot and other unexplained phenomena.

Presented in full color and lavishly illustrated with a complete bibliography, Forbidden Bigfoot fills a niche in the fascinating research behind one of cryptozoology’s most enduring mysteries. As always, Lisa Shiel steps forward with bold answers demonstrating that:

  •      DNA testing, far from the conclusive proof promised by many researchers, has led to more questions and controversies while providing few, if any, answers;
  • Comparing the fossil evidence to eyewitness accounts offers startling evidence that we might already have Bigfoot bones in museums.

LISA A. SHIEL researches and writes about everything strange, from Bigfoot and UFOs to alternative history and science. She has a master's degree in library science and previously served as president of the Upper Peninsula Publishers & Authors Association. As a fiction writer, Lisa blends her paranormal interests with sci-fi and romance elements to create her own brand of adventure stories. Her fiction works include the Human Origins Series novels as well as short story collections. Lisa's nonfiction books explore topics as diverse as Bigfoot, evolution, and Michigan's quirky history.
