In Pursuit of a Legend: 72 Days in California Bigfoot Country (Paperback)
Backpacking into the heart of California Bigfoot Country, a wildland firefighter and an alienated writer seek evidence of the legendary Bigfoot. They hope to solve the mystery-for themselves if no one else. An early track find of 21-inch footprints offers as much intrigue as it does doubt. Are they even prepared to believe in the creature that may have left the tracks? And what to make of grunts late into the night and rocks being smashed together? This is their true story unlike any other. It is a side of nature-and mankind-unknown to all but a very few. The second edition includes a new introduction and afterword by the author.
