Synopses & Reviews
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.
"For those unfamiliar with the Bigfoot legend, Where Bigfoot Walks is a good primer. For those up to speed, the story Mr. Pyle has recorded of a Sasquatch-like encounter as told around the campfire by a former Haisla Nation chief from coastal British Columbia may be worth all the rehashing; it is one of the best I've ever read." The New York Times Book Review
"[A] leisurely, gracefully written meditation....[T]his enlightening report will intrigue skeptics and believers alike." Publishers Weekly
