SasquatchThirteen-year-old Dylan follows his father into the woods on the slopes of Mount St. Helens, which is on the brink of another eruption, in an attempt to protect the resident Sasquatch from ruthless ...
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.
Bigfoots ARE The Locals. They live here. They were here before we humans showed up on the continent and they will likely outlast us. This is a bigfoot book yet it probes much deeper than a simple treatment of the hackneyed question of Does Bigfoot Exist? This book delves into such questions as why bigfoots exist, why they behave as they do, and why they have not yet been, and may never be dragged into the spotlight of science and the media. And don't look to science for answers, because science is currently unequipped to shed any light on this profound anthropological mystery. The author's personal experiences in investigation and experimentation of the bigfoot hypothesis are chronicled. Frightening and humorous personal experiences are detailed in the manner of the genre we know of as the bigfoot book. We have a lot to learn about The Locals and there is even more we could learn from The Locals.
A TRUCKER IN FLORIDA GETS PICKED UP BY BIGFOOT:I saw this thing come up to the door of the cab. This thing was tall, covered with darkish hair. It stuck its face right into the cab. When the thing leaned in, its body brushed against my feet. That's how close we were. These two huge hands grabbed my legs. I was dragged out of the truck. The thing just tucked me under one of his arms like I was a rag doll. My head was pushed down into that fur, and I almost gagged from the stench. With me under his arm, he walked around to the front of the truck. He moved in front of the lights and looked at me. It was as if he was inspecting me and deciding whether to keep me or throw me away. I knew I was in bad trouble if he dragged me off. I didn't know what he wanted with me. I just knew I wanted out of there.(from Chapter 4)
