About the Author
Autumn Williams has conducted Bigfoot research for 20 years. As the child of a family of long-term witnesses in Washington state, Autumn has focused her research on habituators - people who claim ongoing encounters with Sasquatch. She created OregonBigfoot.com as a central clearinghouse for Bigfoot reports in Oregon and a means to disseminate information as it comes across her desk. Oregon Bigfoot has since grown into a close-knit community of really wonderful folks from all across the country. In 2003, Autumn hosted the television series MYSTERIOUS ENCOUNTERS on Outdoor Life Network. In 2005, she directed and produced a documentary, OREGON BIGFOOT: SEARCH FOR A LIVING LEGEND. She currently lives in Oregon.

This book was riveting! I devoured it within two days as I found it impossible to put down for any length of time. It's a credible account of one man's experience with a Sasquatch and in my opinion, makes the existence of these beings more easily accepted as fact. It's an easy read, and will whet the appetite of anyone who also finds this topic as interesting as I do. For those skeptics who might read it, I doubt that it will do much to change your opinion, but it's worth the read.
It's a good story. It has the insights included from someone who knows bigfoot is in existence. It is a story told second hand of encounters with a human-like being. The story contains human dilemmas and elements of trust and humanity from everyone involved. I give it five stars.
There must be one thing understood when reading this book: Enoch does not have any evidence offered, so if that is the sort of book you are looking for, it would be best if you looked toward a different source. Grover Krantz or Jeff Meldrum may be authors to investigate. However, neither of them has seen a bigfoot. Williams is different; she grew up knowing they exist because she remembers having seen them.
Being a believer in things squatchy, it is difficult to separate myself from that viewpoint. I came into this perspective long before I picked up the book. After all, it took a team of schooled researchers two years to find a group of chimps, and chimps were accepted as being a species already. That being said, I think it can be appreciated by the nonbeliever too because it is a good story, provided you can suspend your skeptic views at least a little bit to include human-like behavior from a being that has been fooling the majority of science for years and years.
This book does offer a great storyline, and it is well written. The author is not the person who went through the experiences, but was given the story second hand. It is missing some of the immediacy that is held within eyewitness testimony offered by sighting reports, but still has a good amount of tension to the storyline. It is a story that's offered as the truth and something that is open to your own personal lines of debate. It allows its readers to be the judge and jury of a personal story or two or even three...
The squatch community is a hard community to please, with big personalities and opinions to match. The parts of the book describing the author's dilemmas regarding disclosure may not be very entertaining to a nonbeliever or someone who is not familiar with the bigfoot-online scene; it may look like fluff. With all the chest bumping and chest pounding that goes on with the huge egos in abundance -for some reason - in bigfootery, this extra information is a part of the drama in which the bigger story unfolds. These are a researcher's dilemmas regarding the disclosure of such a story. An author who just wanted a book published would not have gone through what this author did; to me, she proved she was a true researcher with the inclusion of this material and has given the reader the information she had at hand to judge the story as he or she sees fit. The author judged it and decided to publish it because she believed that it could be real because the person telling the story had no real motive for hoaxing. He wanted no money and in fact insisted on anonymity.
This book may not make you a believer, but it may allow you to crack open that door of skepticism just far enough to look at a body of evidence, substituting that for your need for an actual corpse. I raise my glass to all those with the hope sustaining that there is no need for bloodshed in this world. We just need to move from cynicism to skepticism. People need to hear these sorts of stories as a primer for what might be ahead of us; it might just be this sort of reference that we look to as most important as time goes racing forward in this very-against-mainstream-science field.
I would recommend this book to the believer or not. Just the content and views of the witness and author are outstanding and make it a good read. BUT. I also have a open mind. And Do not believe all the witness are making things up.
