Sasquatch: Man-Ape or Myth?

Throughout the Northwest, people have reported encounters with Sasquatch, a tall, hairy hominid for hundreds of years. Yet aside from a collection of large footprint casts and eyewitness accounts dating back to the earliest humans in the Northwest, no scientifically accepted evidence has been offered to establish Sasquatch’s existence.

In a series of upcoming appearances, Author David George Gordon explores “Sasquatch: man-Ape or Myth” with audiences in 8 different communities. The program is sponsored by Humanities Washington along with support from Friends of Whitman County and Neill Public Libraries.
