This book was such a pleasant surprise. The author has a way of describing the people he meets with such vividness. The dialogue is wonderful. I don't have a particular interest in Sasquatch, but a friend recommended I read this book for the travelogue aspect and because I love the pacific northwest. John Zada clearly has the same passion for this region and you can tell he has the utmost respect for the communities he visited. I definitely recommend!

A combination of travel memoir, Sasquatch sightings and philosophy. As John Zada searched for Sasquatch, he vacillated between "it exists" and "it doesn't exist." He traveled from one village to the next seeking out firsthand reports and searching for evidence. Along the way he became intimately acquainted with the beauty of the Great Bear Forest -- the Noble Beyond -- in British Columbia and saw the ecological struggles occurring there. As a child of the 70's, I was drawn to this book and the search for Sasquatch. This book will also appeal to travel aficionados, cryptozoologists and philosophers. Perhaps we all have our own version of the Noble Beyond.
