There are so many sightings of these hairy giants in the Bluegrass State that it has come to be ranked as one of the most active for Bigfoot sightings east of the Mississippi River!

Bigfoot! Huge, hairy, foul smelling, this legendary apelike animal continues to captivate the public's imagination. This fascination hinges on a single piece of motion-picture film shot in northern California in 1967. For thirty-five years, Bigfoot believers have been convinced that this sixty-second piece of film proves the physical reality of Bigfoot.But now comes a book that demolishes that belief, that produces final proof that the film footage is a hoax.The Making of Bigfoot tells the amazing story of Roger Patterson of Yakima, Washington. A part-time rodeo rider, chronically unemployed and dying of cancer, Patterson propelled himself into short-lived fame and fortune by exploiting his obsession with the Bigfoot subject and leveraging his expertise in manipulating and conning people to pull off one of the world's great hoaxes.Living within two hours of Patterson's hometown, for three years paranormal investigator and author Greg Long interviewed more than forty witnesses in Yakima who knew Patterson intimately. The voices of these witnesses, combined with facts unearthed from newspaper archives, books, and court documents, tell the real story of Roger Patterson.Both tragic and comical, a unique slice of Americana, The Making of Bigfoot captures the testimony of a colorful cast of characters who bring to life a man and a time in the 1960s when Bigfoot strode into the American imagination, and the world embraced a myth.

In the 10 years since the advent of the 21st. century, what was supposed to go away had remained. Bigfoot, Sasquatch, or Yeti sightings had not decreased, but were still being reported at an ever-increasing rate. Today, with everyone having cameras on their phones, the digital pictures, though of poor quality, had continued to plague the press and investigators.The same was true of the U.F.O. phenomenon which was even older and researched more in the nineteen sixties by more credible investigators; the U.S. Government with Project Blue Book was supposed to come to some kind of conclusion of this age-old malady. After years of study they surmised that it was all, for the most part, explainable, and therefore without merit. “Project Blue Book” concluded, under extreme pressure from the Government, that reports should be dismissed as either group hysteria or misinterpretations. This was a scam that set the investigations of this world-wide epidemic on its ear, for they suspected that there were no such things as UFO’s or Flying Saucers ( a term coined in 1947 by a civilian pilot named Kenneth Arnold and the press which was highly publicized and occurred on June 24th. 1947 near Mount Rainier Washington). The term UFO which replaced Flying Saucers, was adopted by the media in 1952 as a common reference to anything unknown and of any shape observed flying around in the sky. Be that seen by the human eye or radar, which was then referred to as a bogy or blip. After years of study, “Project Blue Book” convulsed upon itself and regurgitated that;“1. No UFO reported, investigated, and evaluated by the Air Force was ever an indication of threat to our national security;2.there was no evidence submitted to or discovered by the Air Force that sightings categorized as "unidentified" represented technological developments or principles beyond the range of modern scientific knowledge; and3. there was no evidence indicating that sightings categorized as "unidentified" were extraterrestrial vehicles.” (Wikipedia-Project Blue Book)Many new concepts and theories are emerging as to the connectivity between these two phenomena and others, and an overall feeling has developed among many researchers that in some Parallel-Universe way, they are all connected! From foul smelling ape-like creatures; ABSM’s, Yeti’s, Sasquatch, to Fairies, Leprechauns, UFOs, Ghosts, Angels and monstrous Demons, something has, and is, still finding its portal or way into our physical existence. Whether beckoned and intentionally called upon, through ancient rites such as Alchemy and Witchcraft, or just unknowingly stupid actions involving objects such as Ouija Boards and Divining Rods, to naturally occurring Magnetic Anomalies, these things exist, and have both physical and ethereal properties! Notice I did not say they were real. There is a fine line of resolution here that everyone determines differently. Either that or everyone seeing these peculiarities is insane.These are the puzzling questions that investigators have had to grapple with for years. But a new idea is emerging, that quite possibly they do come from the same melting pot and are all inter-dimensionally forged by unknown entities. You be the judge.This is a fictional account of an event that takes place on Mount Hood. Some of the language contained may be vulgar and offensive, but this can happen when three men from Northern Oregon go out to find and hunt down, with much apprehension, what they locally and jovially refer to as SQUATCH.This is copyrighted material and may not be reproduced in any form without the written consent of the author.R.S.
