About the Author

Dr. Russell Jones has been in private practice for over 30 years and consumed with the Bigfoot mystery for longer than that. “The Appalachian Bigfoot”, is his second book, the first being the award winning “Tracking the Stone Man.”

After attending Huntington College on a baseball scholarship, he graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic. He has a Bachelors and Doctorate degree.

Dr. Jones is also a Certified Master Naturalist. He attempts to mix a science background with a lifetime of hunting and trapping knowledge to gather possible evidence of an undiscovered North American primate.

He enters the woods with his faithful black lab “Shade” to tend his dozens of professional game cameras and look for tracks year round in Appalachia.
