On the central and north coast of British Columbia, the Great Bear Rainforest is the largest intact temperate rainforest in the world, containing organic matter than any other terrestrial ecosystem on the planet The area plays host to a wide range of species, from thousand year old western cedars to humpback whales to iconic white Spirit bears According to local residents, another giant is said to live in these woods For centuries people have reported encounters with the Sasquatch a species of hairy bipedal man apes said to inhabit the deepest recesses of this pristine wilderness Driven by his own childhood obsession with the creatures, John Zada decides to seek out the diverse inhabitants of this rugged and far flung coast, where nearly everyone has a story to tell, from a scientist who dedicated his life to researching the Sasquatch, to members of the area s First Nations, to a former grizzly bear hunter turned nature tour guide With each tale, Zada discovers that his search for the Sasquatch is a quest for something infinitely complex, cutting across questions of human perception, scientific inquiry, indigenous traditions, the environment, and the power and desire of the human imagination to believe in or reject something largely unseen.Teeming with gorgeous nature writing and a driving narrative that takes us through the forests and into the valleys of a remote and seldom visited region, In the Valleys of the Noble Beyond sheds light on what our decades long pursuit of the Sasquatch can tell us about ourselves and invites us to welcome wonder for the unknown back into our lives.
