Where Bigfoot Walks: Crossing the Dark Divide
By Dr. Robert Pyle
One of my favorite bigfoot books (and one that has been on my list of excellent additions to any bigfoot library for a long time) has been reprinted this year with a new chapter! The butterfly specialist and wordsmith, Dr. Robert Pyle, has updated his classic tome, Where Bigfoot Walks: Crossing the Dark Divide.
This isn’t your average bigfoot book in that it isn’t full of sighting reports and evidence supporting the existence of an undiscovered hominoid species. This book is from the perspective of an educated, open-minded skeptic who takes a personal journey into the mystery (which is more than most skeptics do). His knowledge of the terrain and environment of the Dark Divide, an area deep in Gifford Pinchot National Forest, comes forth in his writing, as does his appreciation of the natural beauty of the area.
This book doesn’t necessarily persuade the reader that bigfoot is real, but it does something equally important. It persuades the reader that the possibility exists, and this is often the first step into a larger world for the uninformed on the subject. Dr. Pyle takes you on his journey with him, and shows that the mystery itself is a valuable thing for us all. The quest is worth the journey, though the final destination of that quest is uncertain.
And, as an added bonus, the newest edition includes a few words from yours truly as well.
I will be making an appearance in White Salmon, WA with Dr. Pyle on October 28th where he will be doing a reading from his book. If you haven’t had a chance to meet Dr. Pyle, you really should make an effort to do so. His thoughtful perspective on the subject is a delight to hear, to say the very least.
