The Legend of Bigfoot (Legend Has It)It’s a huge, smelly monster that stomps through the woods. It roars in the night as it hunts for food. Stories of Bigfoot are heard all over North America. Is it possible the legends are true?
In the U.S. Geological Survey, there are over 100 tribal and 2300 location names, in the United States alone, for a creature that walks in myth and legend throughout the 25,000 square miles of the Pacific Northwest. As a young boy on a family camping trip, 9 year old Ian McQuade encountered one of the giant, apelike beings. The experience changed his life forever, limiting his academic prospects and ruining his professional career. Now, twenty years later, an anthroplogist and a Ph.D. in his own right, Dr. McQuade sets out on an urgent mission for Cyril Pritchard and the Chimaera Foundation in pursuit of Bigfoot, without partner Alma Del Nephites. In the process, two of the greatest mysteries about Bigfoot will be uncovered, in a desperate race against time. One must remain a secret at all costs. The other must be revealed, before it is too late...
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.

Like many reclusive celebrities, Big Foot is misunderstood. In his touching memoir Me Write Book he wants to set the record straight, proving that although he's larger, hairier, and more foul-smelling than most of us, he's really not so different underneath. Only the most coldhearted among us could look on without compassion as this hirsute Everyman struggles bravely with casual cannibalism, Pringles potato crisps, embarrassing moments with peach Schnapps, the desperate loneliness of personal ads, and philosophical quandaries. Readers will never forget the plaintive voice from the wilderness that howls from every page of this searing, intimate account of a man-beast in the promised land.
