Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 5-8AWhen Dylan accompanies his father to a meeting of the Bigfoot International society, he's sure that it's just another of Dad's odd hobbies. Soon after, his father joins the society's sinister leader in an expedition to hunt down a Sasquatch specimen, and Dylan decides to go along. He hooks up with an old hermit who seems to be familiar with the area and the legend. When it appears that someone is following the old man, Dylan begins to suspect that his companion may be hiding a mysterious past. In addition, evidence that the Sasquatch may be more than a legend begins to accumulate and Dylan realizes he must prevent the society from killing them. With an exciting climax set amid a Mount Saint-Helens eruption, this fast-moving, suspenseful story provides lots of action and appeal.AElaine E. Knight, Lincoln Elementary Schools, IL

I think that this was a great action filled book. I couldn't put it down. When I first started reading this book I really got into it. What this book is about is the Sasquatch. The Dad in this story goes hunting with some of his bodies at work, when he gets his first look at Sasquatch. After that he becomes interested and fasinated about the creature and wants to learn more. His son is pulled along on this crazy adventure. He son doesn't believe his dad until he gets his own look at the massive creature. This book is an awsome Science Fiction and I suggest it to anyone that likes to sit down and read a good book.

I loved this book. If you like unpredictable books, you'll like this. It's an adventure involving the myth, the good guy that turns bad, the real good guy, the bad guy, the suspicious one, and the kid who weaves them together. If you like Philip Pullman's The Golden Compass and The Subtle Knife, you'll love this! Pullman's books are similar to Smith's, but Smith's are easier to follow and Pullman's are a higher level of reading. This book is definitely near the top of my list.

Sasquatch is an awsome book which I could feel the story in life. Also, it is very realistic science fiction. The theme of the entire story is exicting.This story really make me imagainate the picture of each scene in the stroy. When I first began to read it, I can't stop without I finish the entire story. I would recommend this book to ages 11 to 15.

A 5th grade teacher in our school read "Sasquatch" to her class at the beginning of the school year, and suddenly it become the most requested book in our elemementary school library...the only problem was, we didn't have any copies...yet.
Now that we have few copies, it's still one of our most requested books.
Roland Smith has done an excellent job of weaving together three famous Washington State legends, the state where we live, into one extremely exciting adventure, that keeps building up to the very end. Two of those legends are--obviously--the Sasquatch and Mount Saint Helens, but you'll have to read the book to discover the third. To tell you now would spoil 1/3 of your fun in reading this thrilling book.
Whether you consider this title realistic fiction or fantasy will depend entirely on your view of the Sasquatch (or Bigfoot). I prefer to see it as a fantasy, but that doesn't take away from the excitement of this book. This is a "guys" book, that girls will also enjoy reading.

Sasquatch
The book Sasquatch, by Roland Smith, is about a group of men that join together to go hunting for a large hairy creature called Big Foot. The team went hiking on a mountain on their search to find him. The problem is that the mountain is Mount Saint Helens, and the volcano begins to erupt while they are there. When one of the men gets hurt, it is actually Sasquatch (the Native American word for Bigfoot) that finds him and carries him to safety.
The main characters in this book are a thirteen year old boy named Dylan and his father, who has always been interested in mythical creatures. Dr. Flagg is the leader of the hunting party that wants to capture and kill a Sasquatch. Samuel Johnson is the field biologist that Dylan joins in trying to protect the creature from the hunters.
The character that I like the best is Dylan's dad, because ever since he was helped by a kind, mysterious creature years before, he planned to sometime find and see his friend again. He just wanted to thank him, not hurt him like the others in his group. The rest of the group has no idea that he is on a mission to help Bigfoot, or that Dylan is following them all.
I would give this book four stars out of five, and would definitely recommend it to a friend. It had all of the elements of surprise, you didn't see it coming or you knew it was coming and you were waiting for it to happen. Plus, it was action packed and full of drama, adventure and humor. I thought the characters were believable and typical. It really makes you believe in the whole Bigfoot legend.
