Overview

The recent earth-shaking announcement by Melba Ketchum that Sasquatch DNA has finally been sequenced emerges from a years-long study of hair, blood and tissue samples obtained at various "habituation sites"-places with which members of this primate species have become familiar.

Overview

The recent earth-shaking announcement by Melba Ketchum that Sasquatch DNA has finally been sequenced emerges from a years-long study of hair, blood and tissue samples obtained at various "habituation sites"-places with which members of this primate species have become familiar.

Until very recently, our only publicly shared knowledge of Sasquatch came through reports of chance encounters and fleeting glimpses by eyewitnesses, as well as the rare piece of video or film footage. Yet meanwhile, throughout North America, certain people have been patiently and privately building a much more nuanced, long-term understanding, seeking-in the great and humane tradition of Jane Goodall and Dian Fossey-to learn from this evasive, shrewd and tricky hominid race.

Now, Impossible Visits fills in this background story-the groundbreaking work of ordinary (and unsung) human beings who have experienced and fostered, sometimes for decades, consistent Sasquatch visitations to their homes and properties. This species has survived alongside Homo sapiens, down through the eons, thanks to enormous stealth, maintaining a necessary margin of physical distance. The "habituators" have succeeded, not in bridging this distance, but in establishing a rapport that allows for the regular exchange of food and gifts, and even occasional clear daylight sightings.

One by one, and in concert, these accounts will help to assemble a solid, highly textured infrastructure of knowledge against the day when a specimen body is "harvested"-as nearly transpired in the 2010 "Sierra Kills" incident. At this time, the media will attempt to spike ratings by provoking hysteria among the general public: It's "Rise of the Planet of the Apes"--FOR REAL!

But dead giants tell no tales, so the key will be for a variety of level-headed sources to exist, where all accumulated insight can reveal the intelligence and civility of our zoological cousin, helping to erect a legal barrier between Sasquatch and its would-be trophy hunters.

Impossible Visits is the only book to open windows onto multiple habituation sites, to show-through rich, first-person testimonials and the author's own field notes-the nature and behavior of these fringe-dwelling neighbors.

    Highly Recommended

    Being a Bigfoot researcher I was interested in reading this book because it is about people who say they have haituated with Bigfoot type beings for over a period of time. This shows some very interesting information not know to the general public, and even some Bigfoot researchers. What is communicated in this book may be very valuable information for those of us doing field research, and how to better approach these gentle giants in the field. This is facinating reading material be it fact or fiction, and it really makes you stop and think. If you do a little research, no matter where you live, (except Hawaii - they have their little foot) you will find reports of Bigfoot activity.
