Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book invites the reader to discover the country where Bigfoot can be imagined. The poetry of William Stafford and the art of Angelina Marino-Heidel take you to the places where you feel Bigfoot just around the bend.

Review:

"Angelina Marino-Heidel's brilliant images and William Stafford's quiet words together make a lovely gift-book for child or adult." Ursula K. Le Guin, National Advisor, Friends of William Stafford, winner of Hugo, Nebula, Gandalf, and National Book awards

Review:

"Parents, teachers, librarians, rejoice! This book is a boon. Bill Stafford's poem and Angelina Marino-Heidel's riveting, color-laden art tell an irresistible story. These vibrant pages invite young readers and listeners into the deep and ageless mysteries of Big Foot's wilderness world." Paulann Petersen, poet laureate, Oregon

About the Author

William Stafford (1914-1993) was born in Kansas, served four years in public service camps as a conscientious objector during World War II, and taught English at Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Oregon, from 1948 to 1975. One of America's most respected, accessible, and widely published poets, he was the poet laureate of the United States between 1970 and 1971 and the poet laureate of Oregon from 1974 to 1989.

About the Illustrator:
Angelina Marino-Heidel was born Angelina Hampton in Salem, Oregon. The daughter of pioneers, her father's family came across on the Oregon Trail and settled in the forest lands of Oregon. Marino-Heidel is a muralist and artist working in paint, glass fused to copper, pastels, and direct metal sculpture (in collaboration with her husband, sculptor Joel Heidel). Her murals can be seen in many public and private places in Oregon and beyond. Many more of her paintings and sculptures are held by corporate and private patrons, both nationally and internationally. She is also a publisher of one-of-a-kind collaborative works between artists and writers, including Mother and the Mangos, done in collaboration with poet Tim Barnes and published by Charles Seluzicki Fine Books and M Kimberly Press (1991).

About The Compiler/Editor:
Tim Barnes, a poet and scholar, was a member of the English Department at Portland Community College for 25 years, teaching composition, literature, and creative writing. Before that he spent 10 years roving around Oregon as a poet in the Artists-in-Education Program. He has authored 5 books of poetry, most recently Definitions for a Lost Language. He now edits Friends of William Stafford: A Newsletter for Poets & Poetry. Father of 2 grown children, he lives in Portland, Oregon, with his wife Ilka and their cat Lorca. He met William Stafford in the mid-seventies when in graduate school at Portland State University.

RAHREADER, January 28, 2014 (view all comments by RAHREADER)
The 2014 Centennial Celebration for the great Oregon poet, William Stafford is something that I have been looking forward to. I was honored to take a class from Stafford while he was alive and teaching at Lewis & Clark College. It was a life changing experience for me and I have been an avid admirer of his works ever since. This new children's book, EVERYONE OUT HERE KNOWS: A Big Foot Tale, is built on a little poem by Stafford and it holds an inspired if not even spiritual-like inquiry to the elusive sasquatch/bigfoot. With amazing illustration by Angelina Marino-Heidel, this book is certainly a great book for children to read ... and I would add that it is a delightful experience for parents and grandparents to read to children.
