Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Where Bigfoot Walks is concerned less with the existence of Bigfoot than with the nature of human belief, particularly the need to believe that something beyond what we rationally know is out there. Awarded a Guggenheim fellowship to investigate the legends of Sasquatch, Bob Pyle trekked into the wilderness of the Dark Divide, where he discovered a giant fossil footprint; searched out Indians who told him of an outcast tribe whose members had not evolved fully into humans; attended Sasquatch Daze, where he met scientists, hunters, and crackpots who devote their lives to Bigfoot; and realized that these guys don't want to find Bigfoot - they want to be Bigfoot. A Smithsonian scientist insisted that the possibility of a hoax to explain all the facts is even more remote than that of the animal existing; even the Army Corps of Engineers said Bigfoot's existence was not unlikely. The tabloid press provided corroborating evidence in reports such as Bigfoot Baby Found in Watermelon:

Synopsis:

Robert Michael Pyle trekked into the Dark Divide, where he discovered a giant fossil footprint; searched out Indians who told him of an outcast tribe that had not fully evolved into humans; and attended the convocation in British Columbia called Sasquatch Daze, where he realized that "these guys don't want to find Bigfoot-they want to be Bigfoot." Ultimately Pyle discovers a few things about Bigfoot - and a lot about the human need for something to believe in and the need for wilderness in our lives.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 328-329) and index.
