A mysterious cave contains a strange book that leads to a quest with an unusual and scary companion. The stakes? An entire species. "It suddenly struck me what an incongruous team we were - a giant hairy Bigfoot, a somewhat broken-down scraggly human, and a small scruffy dog. I was pretty sure the Canadian Border Patrol had never seen the likes of us - and I hoped they never would." Rusty Wilson is known as the world's greatest Bigfoot storyteller. Join him for a journey you may never forget!

Kinda spoilers... But not really just a few references...
It's a good story but I'm kinda disappointed in Rusty, I'm a adamant believer in Sasquatch and know about his existence and have a very open mind but this crosses the line a bit.
As to the conclusion he is wrong cause we are ever advancing in our knowledge and understanding of our world and helping control the info as the truth comes out and use it to educate the public as much as possible is the way we should go about it so people learn to accept these amazing creatures and learn to let them be and live in peace in there own way as we expect others to do for us. Not to just I naively ignore the issue of "the wider world" finding out and hope it turns out for the best when it dose. You/he supposedly had a INVALUABLE piece of world history and should have been used to educate not as fire starter (read the book and you'll know what I mean) and what was left of the book (the picture/drawing) should be dated to validate the intelligence and authenticity of there cultural heritage.
Unlike most of Rusty's books, this is not a collection of Bigfoot encounters, but one story. The first part was actually the last story in his first book, "Rusty Wilson's Campfire Stories." While you don't necessarily need to review that story, it does give this book a great introduction, even though there is a recap here. Some people have had difficulty with this story because they cannot comprehend that we may not be the only ones on this planet. As a fan of Star Trek, Star Wars, Dr. Who and others, I believe it is a beautiful story of one man's redemption through encounters with another species. They both learn about each other and what friendship truly means. I think the BFRO should study this book to better learn how to interact with the species. This is an exciting adventure story that includes fascinating history and culture noted in this book. I hope we can show respect for the species. I would loved to have met Happy and Packy. It reminds me of an older film called Enemy Mine where two different species in outer space learned to trust each other. A wonderful story with twists and turns that just may touch your heart. Rusty tells it beautifully as always and Richard Henzel does a superb job enthralling us with this tale. Open your mind and heart and go along for the ride!
I have all of Rusty's bigfoot books and have enjoyed them all. This was the last one that I purchased as the story seemed to be to far out for me. I finally decided to buy it. While I have a hard time believing that there is any truth to the story I will most likely listen to it again at some point as it is rather entertaining.
Rusty Wilson is a very good writer and storyteller. However, for me, the whole thing that makes Rusty Wilson's bigfoot stories SO compelling is the possibility that they might be true.
This one does not have that possibility.
Since I had read all of his other bigfoot short stories I thought, "How much more farout could this one be?" I don't want to ruin it for anyone who wants to read it, but in my opinion, there is 0% possibility that this story is true, and therefore it is just a fantasy novel. If you are OK with that, then maybe give it a try.
I'll admit I didn't finish the book. All of his other bigfoot short stories are top notch.
If you are interested in the world of Bigfoot and the stories surrounding them, then this is a great read/listen.
