SKAMOKAWA — The Friends of Skamokawa presents a reading and book signing with Robert Michael Pyle, author of “Where Bigfoot Walks: Crossing the Dark Divide,” 7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 14, at the Skamokawa Resort Conference Center (1391 Washington State Route 4) behind the Skamokawa General Store.

A reissue of “Where Bigfoot Walks” was published by Counterpoint Press in August. This handsome new edition is updated with fresh experiences, research and findings.

Pyle is the author of eighteen books, including “Wintergreen,” “Rambles in a Ravaged Land,” “Chasing Monarchs,” “The Thunder Tree: Lessons from an Urban Wildland,” “Sky Time in Gray’s River: Living for Keeps in a Forgotten Place,” and the recent poetry collection “Evolution of the Genus Iris.” A Yale-trained ecologist and a Guggenheim fellow, he is a full-time writer living in southwestern Washington.

“The newly reissued Where Bigfoot Walks by Robert Michael Pyle is a spectacular, moving, and witty narrative exploration of not only the phenomenon of Bigfoot, but also the human need to believe that something is out there beyond the campfire, and that wildness remains as well,” Counterpoint Press said in a release.

Lawrence Millman, author of “Our Like Will Not Be There Again: Notes from the West of Ireland,” wrote: “Splendidly lyrical and just as splendidly crusty, ‘Where Bigfoot Walks’ is the sort of book Thoreau might have written if he had discovered giant footprints of an unknown origin in the vicinity of Walden Pond.”

The event supports the Friends of Skamokawa Foundation.
