Publisher's Summary

My grandfather was the last person in the world I would have ever expected to hear a story about a personal encounter with Bigfoot.

He was a serious man and for him to discuss this ancient & controversial knowledge so openly was astounding. He wasn't mean or abusive, but he had no time for silliness. He never wasted time on unexplained mysteries or folklore. He grew up in an era and in circumstances where silliness was "for women, children, and the mentally insufficient".

He was witness to a world war, the depression, and numerous other major events. Yet he never bragged, told tales or stories, and rarely reflected on the past. In fact, he didn't speak much at all but when he did people listened because he would have something important to say. He was the last person in the world I would have ever expected to hear a story about a personal encounter with Bigfoot.

Great Starter

I'm not usually a fan of short stories but this little piece was a nice change of pace. I liked the initial character development because it was a realistic portrayal of life for that generation.
Great narration by S.B. Character accent was mellow and believable. Can't wait to hear more from this narrator. :)

great story

glad his grandfather shared his story. it shows how a previous generation looked at things differently than we do today. before the big foot term was used. there were many other names used and lots of old newspaper accounts.

Reminisce for few

The story is interestingly written, with quite a bit of build-up to the Bigfoot story, but the reading is smooth, and really captures the reminiscent tone of the period. I’ll be looking for more stories read by Scott Bradford.

The story was interesting. The narrator's voice is amazing and very relaxing to listen to. I will be keeping an eye out for other stories by this narrator.

A captivating short story

This was such a fun listen. I loved the rural "voice" of the characters in the story, and I never thought a tale about Bigfoot could feel so...real. The narrator also had a lovely, soothing voice that kept me hooked.

"My interest was piqued"

Any additional comments?

This is the first time I have heard the story of Bigfoot (true story) and "my interest was piqued" like the grandson. The narrator's voice was real soothing. If the "damn" was not included I would play this for my almost 6 years old. I think he would love it. Scott Bradford did a great job!
