Stories of "Wild Men" are found from Europe to Australia, Japan to
Africa, and throughout North America but they did not capture the
imagination of white America until the 1920s, and they did not become a
mania until after World War II.
The Pacific Northwest has always been home to unusual folktales, bizarre
legends, and strange goings ons. From the countless UFO sightings and
the dense rainforests of Oregon and Washington, to the sprawling network
of Shanghai tunnels interlaced beneath the cities, the region is rife
with stories of the unexplained and the unnatural. In Evergreen Ape,
David Lewis takes a closer look at the origins of the Pacific
Northwest's most beloved and elusive cryptid: Bigfoot. Drawing from
newspaper reports, local American Indian legends, and stories passed
down from settlers in the 1800s, Lewis explores the true stories that
created the modern monster. Discover the various manifestations of the
legend and the way he has interacted with society, then read about
popular hikes in the area where he has supposedly been spotted, and step
onto the path of finding Bigfoot yourself.
- Of all the cryptocreatures, Bigfoot still tends to be one of the most popular
