This true story sets out to chronicle the terrifying encounters that a residential family has had with the creature known as Bigfoot. The story is written in Christine's own words as it unfolds. According to the Bigfoot investigator they contacted, "They aren't going anywhere." As the world gets more crowded with us, "They" are left with less and less habitat. They have learned to live in the shadows and pass through the forests by our homes.
Note: No part in this story is embellished or fictionalized. It is a series of true events interpreted and told from the author's point of view.

This seems to be more a story of how sleeplessness can contribute to an over active imagination and hysteria. A better book on this subject is Strange Mutants by John A Keel, which has a few chapters on documented sightings of Bigfoot listed in a dispassionate, matter of fact way which are both interesting and informative.
I found this book annoying and spent most of my time thinking this lady obviously already had serious issues with wild dark spaces having spent some of her time living in a city. It also sounded as if most of the early events that occurred could be explained through more mundane means. To be fair, I did say most things. She lost me when she talked about expecting people to be able to relocate a bigfoot because she didn't like it being near her house and from then on it went down hill until after an hour and a half I turned it off. I don't doubt that what this lady experienced was frightening, but again it all smacked more of paranoia and sleep deprivation.
One final note, the recordings provided are of poor quality and were perfect fodder on which to project imagined results. For instance (spoiler) The "Mommy" call might just as well have been someone calling their cat, because it could have been any short name ending with an "Ee" sound.
Out of respect to the author, she was the one who was there and experienced these events and it may just be the style in which she writes which put me off.
I could not finish the story. Like some of the other people said, it is like a paranormal campfire story that goes on too long.
Yes, I could turn it off. Of course most of us want to keep and open mind about the possibility of strange things existing that both we and science have missed. But this did not help me to keep an open mind.
Don't just take my word for it. You should listen to this if the subject interests you, but listen to it from a standpoint of cool intellect instead of blind faith.
"Imaginative but Anorexic."
It's hard to imagine a situation where someone would have this much contact and collect this little evidence.
"I don't buy it"
The story wasn't believeable
I'm a huge bigfoot knower, but this story don't make any sense, nor is it plausible. I'm sorry but I'm not the only person who has a hard time buying this. But hey, hopefully I am wrong, and this turns out to be the proof needed. Not really trying to judge.
"Enjoyed it but............."
Kind of like a long campfire tale. I even got a chill or two. It was fun.
On Prime or Netflix, maybe. Certainly not a $11 movie.
The narrator was flat in her delivery. She was better than I would have been, but I'm not a narrator. As for the story, It was fun, but the main character came off as just this side of a basket case. She might want to consider medication. Look, if I found herds of hairy humanoids hazarding my house (okay hazarding was a reach, but I didn't want to pass up the alliteration) I would not take a fair chunk of a year to buy gear to research the problem. On that note, if I bought gear I would spend enough money to make sure it is worth bringing home, even if I had to borrow the money. The trail cameras that the "Researcher"used had a xenon flash on it. You might as well shoot a cannon. Use IR trail cameras, You know where they gather, hide a cell phone set on silent, and auto answer. Call when you see them, and listen. The list goes on. The BF recordings were so bad that they could have been anything. IMHO, although I still don't believe in BF, if something was there, she missed a phenomenal opportunity whilst melting down from room to room.
Overall, it was worth the money.
truly enjoyed it .considering the subject believing or not you will find it very interesting .
This has been a good read and told the story with great detail. It is narrated so that it puts the listener at the edge of their seat wondering what will happen next.
"loved the recordings!"
I was hoping for a little more action. the author definitely seems obsessed with her bigfoots, and could use some kind of hobby! all in all, this book is very interesting!
I really enjoyed being able to listen to a book and get my work done too!!
I thought this was an extremely good read. The narrator was good and the story great. All the behaviors, vocalizations, and morphology are spot on. As I had an up close encounter over thirty years ago, I know they exist. I prefer them not to be "proven". This story would be impossible to hoax. I wish the family best of luck. Oh, and never feed them! They'll expect it and if you stop or move away, you'll either have or leave a huge problem for someone else to deal with! These creatures are thriving and doing fine. Always be cautious and never go in the bush alone.
"Spooky Tale, Dull Narration"
I have read this book and it is an eerie tale of encounters with Bigfoot and Dogmen. While it is a great book (the sequel was just out), the audio version is not so great. It does include the audio recorded sounds mentioned in the book. The narrator leaves much to be desired. There is a dull monotone without much emotion. You can hear the breaths after the sentences. This would have been a great selection with a better narrator.
