- Customer Reviews:
"Tony Healy and Paul Cropper have written the most compelling book this year on one specific group of cryptids. It gathers the best historical and contemporary accounts, evidence, and theories on these less-than-fully-understood (outside of Australia) and little-recognized unknown hairy hominoids. In one fell swoop, this book may stand up for years as the one to consult about these creatures. What the co-authors did for this unknown "species" - Yowies, all - was this year unmatched in any other literary treatment in cryptozoology.The Yowie is a model of organization and completeness to be followed by future authors who wish to publish their examinations of a body of data on one cryptid." - Loren Coleman, Cryptomundo
"The Yowie is a milestone work...It is no small feat to create a classic and thorough reference book that is easily readable by both the everyday person and the hardcore researcher but this is what Healy and Cropper have done..." - Craig Heinselman, Crypto
"At last! ... The Yowie - In Search Of Australia's Bigfoot, the book that Tony Healy and Paul Cropper have been working on for the past seven years. It was worth the wait: this book is far and away the best thing ever written about the yowie mystery. It is destined to become an instant cryptozoological classic..." - Cass, Dean Harrison's Australian Yowie Research
"...perhaps the best survey to date of the Yowie mystery." - Daniel Perez, Bigfoot Times
About the Author
PAUL CROPPER became fascinated by the yowie mystery in 1976, when he uncovered several long- forgotten eyewitness reports in colonial-era news- papers. Although then only 14 years old, he began visiting the Blue Mountains, to the west of his home in Sydney, searching for proof of the creatures' existence.

The authors have given a thorough and professional treatment to a very controversial topic, and have made it a very enjoyable read.
Top reviews from other countries
The authors deliver case after case of sightings through the ages in a level headed and often humorous way and allow you to draw your own conclusions on a subject that is far deeper than first impressions would suggest. The collision between myth and reality here is fascinating. Clearly something has been encountered in the distant past and continues to be seen in the present day regardless of our thoughts on the subject. The question is what?
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 .
