You might walk away with a different perspective on bigfoot Sunday if you happen upon Vintage Books in Vancouver during the afternoon.
Bigfoot expert Robert Michael Pyle will be discussing the updated version of his book “Where Bigfoot Walks.” The original book offers a unique perspective on one of the Pacific Northwest’s most notorious and cherished mythical creatures.
“Mr. Pyle says he is not interested in whether Sasquatch is or is not real,” The New York Times writes in a 1995 book review. “Rather, he aims to examine the myth surrounding the controversial creature and the human characters who have concerned themselves with its fate.”
Now, for the updated version, Pyle provides new information on the Sasquatch’s supposed home environment.
At Vintage books, he’ll talk about his adventures into the Cascade Mountains.
Along with his study of the tall, hairy one, Pyle has authored a number of nature-related books and is the founder of the Xerces Society, an organization that strives to protect invertebrates and their habitats.
"Robert Michael Pyle's message about respecting the environment speaks to the environmental protection public health works to achieve through recycling and waste reduction," said Sally Fisher, Green Neighbors program coordinator, in a Vintage Books press release. "Intact ecosystems allow the imagination to go wild."
