It is also a tale of a very small community of people, living at the precipice of America's wilderness, who became friends, bonded together by the fantastic, and at times frightening things going on. Yes, stories of Bigfoot sightings are in this book, such as the author's close encounter with two Sasquatch while with her then 3 year old daughter Autumn as they were out gathering firewood. There are stories of sightings by her friends & neighbors, amazing accounts of the creatures passing by at night so close to their home that the very ground shook from the weight of their footsteps!
Most impressive is how the author wonderfully and carefully handles the intriguing metaphysical and paranormal elements of the story, things often ridiculed and immediately dismissed in the Bigfoot research community (an extremely delicate balance, and not an easy task at all when you consider that her daughter is one of the most well known and respected Bigfoot researchers in the country)!Read more ›
If this is truly representative of the kind of long-term contacts rural people have with Bigfoot and similar creatures, it represents a nearyly ignored aspect of research into this area of cryptozoology. More books like this are absolutely necessary to the discipline, as this is where the REAL action is going on.
I don't know what to make of the purported link between bigfoot/skookum/sasquatch and the phantom lights. B. Anne Slate covers this in her book in connection with the 'Sierra Sasquatch Sounds' and for those who have looked further into the 1927 Ape Canyon incident, Fred P/Beck (different sources say Peck or Beck) also discusses phantom lights following the occurance in his self published book. Otherwise, everything else is almost over the edge in the occurances. More of what I picked up on in these events, is her possibly semi-subconscious negative relationship with her husband John.Read more ›
