Tom Slick lived in a fast-paced world of intrigue, mystery,
unpublished treks, and secret meetings. Journey to the Himalaya and beyond to learn
more about this incredible individual's days of searching for Yeti...and assisting
the Central Intelligence Agency as an unheralded hero.
This incredible story of Texas millionaire Tom Slick's quest for the Abominable Snowmen,
Bigfoot, Giant Salamanders, Orang Pendek, and other cryptids (creatures unknown to
science) reveals a life made for the movies. Rumor has it that Nicolas Cage will,
indeed, make a Tom Slick movie in the near future.
Fascinating accounts of Slick's early brushes with adventure such as his stepfather's
abduction by George "Machine Gun" Kelly in 1933, and his early explorations
of Loch Ness are followed by his later expeditions into Nepal and the Pacific Northwest
in search of the Yeti and its counterpart, the Sasquatch. The narrative of Slick's
amazing, fanatic, and driven search for the stuff of legends takes readers on a whirlwind
journey from the dense temperate rainforests of California to the steamy montane
valleys and snowfields of the Himalaya, and shows that sometimes cryptids leave the
world of the imagination and are found and captured, as proved by the giant panda
and the Komodo dragon, challenging readers to wonder what more there is to be discovered.

biography by Loren Coleman. It has new photographs, as well as a different
