Where Bigfoot Walks: Crossing the Dark Divide

Reading with Robert Michael Pyle

Sunday, October 22, 2017 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

The newly reissued Where Bigfoot Walks by Robert Michael Pyle is a spectacular, moving, and witty narrative exploration of not only the phenomenon of Bigfoot, but also the human need to believe that something is out there beyond the campfire, and that wildness remains as well.


In the years since publication, the author’s fresh experiences and finds—detailed in an all-new chapter which includes an evaluation of recent DNA evidence from Bigfoot hair and scat, the study of speech phonemes in the “Sierra Sounds” purported Bigfoot recordings, Pyle’s examination of the impact of the wildly popular Animal Planet series Bigfoot Hunters, the reemergence of the famous Bob Gimlin into the Bigfoot community, and more—have kept his own mind wide open to one of the biggest questions in the land.


ROBERT MICHAEL PYLE is the author of twenty books, including Wintergreen: Rambles in a Ravaged Land, Chasing Monarchs, The Thunder Tree, Sky Time in Gray’s River, Through a Green Lens: Fifty Years of Writing for Nature, and the recent poetry collections Evolution of the Genus Iris and Chinook & Chanterelle. A Yale-trained ecologist and a Guggenheim fellow, he is a full-time writer living in rural southwestern Washington.
