Editorial Reviews

Rodney Miles
Rusty Wilson has brought together a great bunch of diverse stories to entertain and mystify. This is an excellent book for the serious Bigfooter, and for anybody who loves a mystery. With 18 stories and over 200 pages, this book will thrill and intrigue, leaving you with your hair standing on end. I loved it!
L.J. Altes
This is a great read. Whether you are into mysteries and adventure or are a serious bigfooter, this book is for you. From tales that are touching to ones that will make you double-check the lock on your door at night, this collection will keep you entertained, intrigued and wondering... Buy and enjoy!
M.A. Upes
If you enjoy the world of mysteries, this book is for you. Rusty presents many entertaining second hand stories that will make your imagination run wild. Each story is well written, easy to read, and leaves convenient breaks between stories. After putting this book down, you may want to lock your doors and close the curtains! Well done.
Rising Tide New Media
These short stories are easy and fun to read - and reminded me of strange encounters I've had in Colorado and Idaho. A warning however, that these stories will heighten your senses to the sights and sounds of the outdoors after dark, so if you are prone to worry about the unknown when out camping, you probably should not read this book. Makes a hugely popular gift as well as a great source of information to repeat around your next council fire.
Jo Ellen Roberson
If you like the scarier side of Bigfoot, this collection of stories is perfect. Most are frightening but there are a few stories that show the lighter side of bigfoot. Over the years, working as a guide, Rusty collected various bigfoot stories from his clients. He took those tales and developed a selection of stories with various themes ranging from compassion to terror. Everyone should be able to find something appealing in this collection.

Meet the Author

Rusty Wilson grew up in the state of Washington, in the heart of Bigfoot country. He didn't know a thing about Bigfoot until he got lost at the age of six and was then found and subsequently adopted by a kindly Bigfoot family.

He lived with them until he was 16, when they finally gave up on ever socializing him into Bigfoot ways (he hated garlic and pancakes, refused to sleep in a nest, wouldn't hunt wild pigs, and on top of it all, his feet were small).

His Bigfoot family then sent him off to Evergreen State College in nearby Olympia, thinking it would be liberal enough to take care of a kid with few redeeming qualities, plus they liked the thick foliage around the college and figured Rusty could live there, saving them money for housing.

At Evergreen, Rusty studied wildlife biology, eventually returning to the wilds, after first learning to read and write and regale everyone with his wild tales. He eventually became a flyfishing guide, and during his many travels in the wilds, he collected stories from others who have had contact with Bigfoot, also known as Sasquatch.

Because of his background, Rusty is considered to be the world's foremost Bigfoot expert (at least so by himself, if not by anyone else). He's spent many a fun evening around campfires with his clients, telling stories. Some of those clients had some pretty good stories of their own. And now, for the first time, he's willing to share their stories with you. He's also working on a book about his own experiences.

Whether you're a Bigfoot believer or not, we hope you enjoyed these tall tales...or are they really true stories?
Only Rusty and his fellow story tellers know for sure.

    Rusty Rocks!

    These stories are well told and very realistic. Lots of adventurous settings and action, but also an aura of mystery and what if Bigfoot is real? The people Rusty collected these stories from will argue it is. Some of the stories are fun, some are intriguing, and some are downright spooky. You won't be able to put it down.
