Summary, etc.:
On the central coast of British Columbia, the Great Bear Rainforest is part of the largest temperate rainforest in the world; for centuries people have reported encounters with the Sasquatch. Driven by his own childhood obsession with the creatures, Zada decides to seek out the inhabitants of this rugged and far-flung coast, where nearly everyone has a story to tell. With each tale he discovers that his search for the Sasquatch cuts across questions of human perception, scientific inquiry, indigenous traditions, the environment, and the power and desire of the human imagination to believe in-- reject-- something largely unseen. -- adapted from jacket.
