An Assembly of Ape-Men

An Assembly of Ape-Men
By Colin Schneider
Ape-men, hairy humanoids, big hairy monsters, ‘squatches, and wildmen are just some of the collective names for the subject of this list. The focus is on Bigfoot and his ilk. Creatures of such are staples of cryptozoological lore, but the majority of them are largely ignored. To the author’s knowledge, never before has there been such an expansive attempt to collect and record the majority of these Ape-men.
