Maybe the longest shot ever: Looking for an old book about bigfoot.

When I was a kid I had a book about bigfoot that I read and re-read. I can't remember what it is called or anything like that but I am clinging to the faintest hope that the AskMe hive mind can help me find it.

I am pretty sure it was purchased at a roadside restaurant near Bridal Falls, BC, next to what was then Flintstone Land. It was not published by any name publisher; I imagine it had a very small print run. (It may have even been mimeographed or something.)
It had a red, maybe maroon cover that was thick paper, not even quite card stock. It *may* have had a picture very similar to the famous still
from the Patterson film, but I might be wrong on that.
It was a collection of stories about sasquatch sightings. It may have only covered BC; the only story I remember well was the story of Jacko, the bigfoot reportedly captured in Yale, BC in 1884.
I know this is a huge long shot. I'm certain the book is no longer in print. But I'll take anything.
