I was into Ivan Sanderson and John Green, John Napier and Rene Dahinden, and anyone else into "Sasquatchology". Even searched out an old edition of Theodore Roosevelt's "The Wilderness Hunter" at the University of South Carolina's Thomas Cooper Library to read the "Ghost Story" chapter, which is the famed "Baumann Recollection" of trappers attacked by a bipedal "whatsit" in Idaho's Salmon River Country circa the 1840s. Wanted to read the story as Roosevelt wrote it, and a chiller it is.
Throughout all this period of bigfoot fascination, however, I always stayed, as I thought, "grounded in reality". This was some sort of primeval survival, I believed. This is an ape-man.
This is a pithecanthropus or a gigantopithecus or some relative to one of these. It is smart and it lives in the forests and it avoids humans as much as possible. Everything I gleaned from anecdotes about Ape Canyon, Albert Ostman, the Ruby Creek sightings, William Roe and others convinced me we were dealing with a biological creature here. (And, in MOST...but not ALL...cases, still do).
Then one day I spied on a bookshelf a slender little paperback volume with a greenish "impressionistic' cover that announced itself as "Bigfoot", by B. Ann Slate & Alan Berry. I thought, "Alriiiight!" and made the purchase. Took it home and began reading it and started scratching my head. Thought "Whaaaaat?". Paranormal bigfeet? Interdimensional manifestations? Three-toed sasquatches? Invisible ape-men? My "rational" self recoiled at such notions as reported therein.
I thought "This is utter crap" Complete rubbish" and pitched the book into a box somewhere.Read more ›
One of the authors, Mr Berry, wrote for the newspaper in my adopted home town in far northern California. I wish I had known he wrote this book while he was still alive!
For the Bigfoot fan it's a great addition to your library.
