On This Day in Weird, July 30...
1995: The august New York Times reviews a book titled Where Bigfoot Walks: Crossing the Dark Divide, by Dr. Robert Michael Pyle. Reviewer Robert Sullivan says, in part: "For those unfamiliar with the Bigfoot legend, Where Bigfoot Walks is a good primer. For those up to speed, the story Mr. Pyle has recorded of a Sasquatch-like encounter as told around the campfire by a former Haisla Nation chief from coastal British Columbia may be worth all the rehashing; it is one of the best I've ever read. I found a lot of Where Bigfoot Walks to be a little annoying, mostly because Mr. Pyle does what he accuses various Bigfoot hunters of doing — using the creature for his own cause, in this case as a paean to the Northwest's evaporating nature."
