On this special holiday edition of Sasquatch Tracks, the team calls in from remote and snowy corners across the globe for a historical deep-dive in pursuit of the true story behind the first purported relict hominoid ever to have risen to worldwide fame, the yeti, or "Abominable Snowman."

In addition to the origins behind its name, we look at the historic record of sightings dating back to the 18th century, and study the notable accounts from over the years which support the existence of an unknown, manlike creature in the Himalayas. Or, could there be even more than one variety? We also examine the controversies that have arisen with relation to the creature over the decades, and finally, one scientist's observation in 1991 that could present the strongest case yet for the existence of the creature.
