As children, we are captivated by stories of huge fantastical creatures, such as the wooly mammoth and the pterodactyl. The prevailing wisdom is these species are long extinct, but new evidence uncovered by author Gerald McIsaac casts doubt on these widely held assumptions. McIsaac gathered stories from the elders of the First Nation those who were formerly referred to as Indians, Native Americans, or Aboriginals. First Nation elders provided McIsaac with detailed descriptions of six species long thought to be extinct. These species include the Devil Bird, the Hairy Elephant, the Wilderness Wolf, the Rubber-Faced Bear, the Lake Monster, and Sasquatch. In Bird from Hell, McIsaac separates fact from fiction by comparing eyewitness accounts of these species with scientific opinion concerning their identity. His conclusion is that these huge species are not extinct, but he needs assistance in gathering evidence to substantiate this claim. By following the simple directions provided in Bird from Hell, you can help prove these various species still exist.
The author is a Caucasian mountain man who has lived among the First Nations people of western North America for over thirty years. The elders have provided him with detailed description of various animals, including the woolly mammoth, the dragon, the Loch Ness monster, the Sasquatch, the mega bear, and the dire wolf, among others. In his book, he describes his solitary quest for these magnificent species in the vastness of the remote mountains. The book is written with great humor and documents his battles with scientists and government bureaucrats who insist that these species are extinct. This book should appeal to the readers who are interested in doing more than just reading about these animals. It provides clear, simple instructions for those who are interested in joining the search. Readers are invited to take part in a scientific breakthrough.
