In the Valleys of the Noble Beyond: In Search of the Sasquatch


      In the Valleys of the Noble Beyond: In Search of the Sasquatch
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.

    In the Valleys of the Noble Beyond is really a deeply satisfying travelogue and social study about how our environments shape us and why our minds are so well suited to believe in supernatural phenomena I grew up in Bigfoot country and so was always terrified of the myth of the Sasquatch, but I have never found any writing about the subject which isn t sensationalized or silly I live in the Middle East, so reading about the dappled forests and silence of the Great Bear National Rain Forest w In the Valleys of the Noble Beyond is really a deeply satisfying travelogue a...
