Customer Review: The Andes

I purchased this book after an extended stay in the Andes mountains. While in the Andes, I personally had no less than 17 sighting of the famed “bigfoot.” I was highly disappointed with my purchase of this book because there was no mention of “bigfoot” nor did it mention highly regarded goat sucker; however, I did find Thomas LeatherMan’s medical experiments with monkey brains extremely amusing.
