内容紹介

Australia's most baffling zoological mystery! During the early colonial era, Australia's Aborigines often warned British settlers to beware of huge, ape-like creatures that lurked in the rugged mountains and deep forests of the island continent. Their people, they said, had been encountering the hairy horrors since time immemorial. They knew them by many names, including doolagarl, thoolagarl, jurrawarra and tjangara. Soon the colonists, too, began to experience hair-raising encounters with the hulking, foul-smelling creatures, which they referred to as "Australian apes," "yahoos" or "youries." Today, they are generally referred to as yowies. The list of modern-day eyewitnesses includes zoologists, rangers, surveyors and members of the elite Special Air Service Regiment. This book chronicles the yowie saga from the pre-colonial era to the present day. It contains over 300 carefully documented eyewitness reports and a vast amount of other data, much of which suggests that the damnably elusive creatures really do exist. The authors also critically examine the many theories that have been put forward to explain - or explain away - Australia's most baffling zoological mystery.

5つ星のうち 5.0 An Impressive Historical Record Of Yowie Sightings 2015/5/31
投稿者 Reid M. Wilson - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック Amazonで購入
The Yowie: In Search of Australia's Bigfoot by Tony Healy and Paul Cropper is an impressive historical record of sightings of the large Bigfootlike animal known as the Yowie. The book begins with the shocking experience on March 5, 1978 of Queensland National Parks and Wildlife Service ranger Percy Window looking for a pig in the jungle and then seeing an eight-foot Yowie, who had a black flat face and large yellow eyes, staring at him -- it is also important to note that later his superiors ordered Window not to talk about the encounter. A drawing by newspaper artist Will Donald as described by surveyor Charles Harper (1840-1930) in 1912 shows the "Bombala Anthropoid" with a small head, long, large canine teeth projecting over the lower lip, long arms, heavy torso, long upper legs, and short lower legs on page 39. Clyde Shepherdson describes his sighting in 1938 or 1939 between Nanango and Maidenwell, Queensland of a six-foot Yowie, who had rusty-yellow fur, a flat, broad face, fangs, a flat nose, and dark facial skin on pages 46-47. Page 69 features a photograph of Dean Harrison, Aaron Carmichael, and a car with a damaged front bumper, which may have been picked up in a collision by an eight-foot Yowie and pushed strongly away so that it smashed into the high embankment along Gilston Road in the Gold Coast hinterland. Pages 70-73 feature the amazing experience in October of 1977 of Bill O'Chee, Craig Jackson, and at least 18 others boys as students of the Southport School at the "Koonjewarre" campground near Springbrook seeing a 2.4-3 meter (7 feet-10.488 inches -- 9 feet-10.11 inches) Yowie in daylight, who returned at night to pull strongly-rooted shrubs out of the hard ground. Case 169 on page 258 at Lake Burrinjuck describes the dramatic sighting of James Basham, who saw an eleven-foot Yowie waiting along the side of Taemas Bridge for his stopped car to pass by and then pulling itself up and down onto the bridge as it walked in front of the car; page 259 features a photograph of the steel structure of Taemas Bridge.

Yowie sightings are also featured in "Section 4 -- Homins Down Under -- The Case For The Australian Hominoids" on pages 82-103 of Bigfoot Research: The Russian Vision.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Opening a new continent for bigfoot researchers to explore 2008/2/11
投稿者 M. LaPlante - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック Amazonで購入
The Yowie: In Search of Australia's Bigfoot by Tony Healy and Paul Cropper is an enjoyable and informative read that adds a new dimension to the mystery of giant, undiscovered, upright walking primates.

As the title implies, this book tracks the "Yowie," an Australian cryptid supposedly resembling the famous North American Sasquatch. Healy and Cropper are researchers who have compiled a large collection of Yowie reports from a combination of first hand interviews and print media. The chapters work through a selection of their archives chronologically, covering creature reports from the early days of Australian settlement up to present day, also touching on sightings of the "littlefoot," and concluding with a summary of the evidence and resulting theories.

The main text of the book is fun, interesting, and highly readable. Those familiar with the bigfoot phenomenon in other parts of world will be amazed by the close correlation with Yowie reports, which are often apparently completely isolated from North American influence. Many of the most in-depth and fascinating stories are covered, with lots of first-hand accounts, illustrations, and documents being included. I must commend the authors for remaining objective in their writing, and for avoiding any temptation to impress their personal opinions on the reader. In fact, in true scientific fashion, there are several occasions in the text where Cropper and Healy explicitly acknowledge cases whose seeming incongruence "poses a difficulty to investigators," and yet they don't shy away from presenting the breadth of the phenomenon... from the textbook cases to the downright unusual. A compendium of your old, rehashed, formulaic stories this isn't.

Additionally, as an American, I'm only vaguely familiar with the Australian landscape and local customs. The authors do superbly to accommodate readers in my position, including everything from simple maps, to a glossary of abbreviations, and metric/imperial conversions in an attempt to make the text globally accessible. Healy and Cropper use geography to tie many reports together, making the included references invaluable.

My one complaint about this book is that the size is somewhat deceiving. As any Bigfoot reader will know, presenting a catalogue of reports is a perilous pursuit which often bogs down and becomes redundant and unenjoyable. The main text of The Yowie avoids this problem spectacularly, but the reader will come to realize that only 200 of the 320 pages of the book are actually the authored "chapters." The remainder is simple appendices, the largest of which is a flat catalogue of a couple hundred sightings, most unedited, and many not longer than a couple sentences. Although the appendix does create an effect on the reader by evidencing the sheer number of reports available, it won't offer most casual readers much entertainment.

Ultimately, I would rate The Yowie a "must read" for all Bigfoot enthusiasts. It opens the door to a new continent for Sasquatch researchers to explore, and although it does not provide any conclusions, it deepens and reinforces the mystery in new and fascinating ways.

5つ星のうち 5.0 A necessary study of a forbidden subject 2007/6/13
投稿者 Albert S. Rosales - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック Amazonで購入
I was not disappointed after reading "The Yowie: In Search of Australia's Bigfoot, by Tony Healy and Paul Cropper. This book was more than informative and it contained more than meat and potatoes, not old rehashed stories and anecdotes. In it we find real witness, real people, reported unreal events and encounters. The compilation at the end of the book is akin to John Green's magnificent work and compilation of Bigfoot encounters worldwide or The Bord's Bigfoot encounter's database. Is a necessary book for the library of all Forteans, Cryptozoologist and also Ufologists. Even though I would like to have seen a more in depth study of the paranormal-UFO connection in relation to some Yowie encounters. But this book is still a must for the libraries of those that comprimise the 'lunatic fringe' (just joking) those of us involved with the myriad of forbidden subjects....
5つ星のうち 5.0 Watch for the Yowies 2012/12/17

形式: ペーパーバック Amazonで購入
I have met one of the authors and am good friends with the proofreader of this book. Paul Cropper was a fantasic guy when I met him in the UK in 2006 - he did a talk on the Yowie - parts from this book - and it was all well written and interesting. It changed my outlook on the strange phenomena of hairy hominids in the Australian landscape. As an amateur cryptozoologist, certain books like this really do make you think. You have to READ this book to understand what could be out there - you can be discerning all you want, keep an open mind. Disbelievers don't read to this extent. This book will spook you, even if you don't believe...
