Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Pyle, eminent naturalist (The Thunder Tree), ecologist and expert on butterflies, conducted his search for Bigfoot or Sasquatch, the perhaps-mythical giant, hairy, apelike humanoid, by trekking across the mountains and plateaus of Washington and northern California. In this leisurely, gracefully written meditation, he talks with Northwest Coast Indians who describe their purported encounters with Bigfoot; attends a Sasquatch conference in British Columbia in 1994; hobnobs with Bigfoot hunters and retraces some of their sightings. Pyle found some 16" footprints and heard eerie whistles that tallied with Sasquatch sounds as described by Native Americans, but the evidence he presents is inconclusive. Nevertheless, this enlightening report will intrigue skeptics and believers alike. Reviewing the battle between those who advocate finding and killing a Bigfoot specimen and those who only condone live capture, Pyle sets forth a protocol designed to protect our giant hominoid relatives, if they exist.

    While Pyle isn' trying to "solve" anything here -

    While Pyle isn' trying to "solve" anything here - if you want to get lost in an area, travel alongside the hiker, get into the mind of the explorer - this is one heck of a read!
    For someone who has done a lot of hiking in the area described, I can pick the book up anytime and just read about the section the author is in and I am right there. Talk about someone getting a sense of place and a feeling for an area! Any reader following these descriptions will have almost been a walking member of The Dark Divide!
    There are facts and stories and historical data but this is much more a tale of being in a place. A feel for a forest region.
    Again don't be caught up in needing to decide if you fall one way or the other on the debate of the animal. You can read this just to get a wonderful sense of the Pacific Northwest and ancient forests.
