Notes From the Field, Tracking North America's SasquatchFrom the most ancient times of human existence, stories of strange man-animals have been passed down in legends and myth. Thses stories have been told in all parts of the world, and accounts from around the globe are all remarkably similar. How could such stories be created, and why? Could the collective unconscious memory of humanity hold within it lurking shadows of creatures we once knew? Creatures that today exist only as legend and myth-but could there be more-is there more? Fossil records firmly establish that once there did exist a giant ape-like creature called Gigantopithecus. ...
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.
