A Little Bigfoot: On the Hunt in Sumatra
By: Pat Spain - 6th Books, $14.95

Description: In the course of Pat Spainís time filming wildlife-adventure TV series, heís gotten pretty used to being uncomfortable. Thereíve been rabid raccoon attacks, days spent in the baking equatorial African sun, and consumption of many revolting local delicacies like fermented mareís milk.

And then there was Sumatra. On the Hunt in Sumatra details the two weeks Pat spent soaking wet with a National Geographic film crew tracking the legendary Orang Pendak through the forests of Indonesia, while tigers, leeches, amorous orangutans, Coldplay fans, a guide named Uncle Happy, two shaman, car demons, and rogue cameramen tracked them.

It is, without a doubt, the most inhospitable terrain Patís ever encountered, with the highest likelihood of grievous bodily harm. But the payoff is the theory he reached about Orang Pendak, and a 5 a.m. EDM Tai Chi party.

Verdict: Pat Spain is that rare thing; a rationalist who still embraces the possible and knows that there are more things in heaven and earth than are dreamt of.

A grown-up who has lost none of the childhood wonder and curiosity that makes the world magical. A scientist who keeps an open mind and rejoices in the fact that absence of proof is not proof of absence.

There is nobody you would want to travel with more to explore the wild side of our literally extraordinary planet. So, in general, when you buckle up and prepare for adventures with Pat Spain, you willingly accept all that will come your way in his company.

Host of various TV series for major cable networks, including Beast Hunter on the National Geographic Channel and Legend Hunter on Travel Channel, with an avid thirst for adventure and innate curiosity, wildlife biologist and explorer Pat Spain constantly leaves his lab to uncover answers to fascinating unsolved riddles, historic conundrums and mythic events.

In the well-received Beast Hunter series, a massive one-eyed monster lurking in the Amazon, a freakish desert creature spraying acid and delivering electric shocks and an ape-like creature walking upright in the Indonesian jungle were just some of the myths that Spain went and unearthed.

In the Legend Hunter series, he used his scientific expertise and state-of-the-art technology to investigate infamous tales of murder, theft and unexplained events, embarking on a hunt to recover a $20 million stolen Irish fortune, finding new evidence that could reveal the identity of Jack the Ripper, delved into the grizzly crimes of Lizzie Borden and even went on a quest for a werewolf-like creature rumored to haunt the residents of Elkhorn, Wisconsin.

On this particular adventure, on one of the Sunda Islands of western Indonesia, things didnít quite go according to plan, which is per the norm for Spain in his TV series, sure, but this time things really took a dark turn for him and his crew!

A Little Bigfoot: On the Hunt in Sumatra: or, How I Learned There Are Some Things That Really Do Not Taste Like Chicken is an insightful read from start to finish and wholly encapsulates his experiences in such a way that you yourself will feel and smell and sense everything he does, in this page-turner of a generous read.

About the Author - Pat Spain is a wildlife biologist, cryptozoologist, biotech expert, TV presenter, key-note speaker, author, and cancer survivor with a passion for adventure.
