Excerpt: Bigfoot Lives Series by Becky Cook + giveaway

Bigfoot Lives... In Idaho (Bigfoot Lives Book 1)
by Becky Cook
November 9, 2012
79 pages

Genre: Nonfiction, True Story Encounters 
It’s late at night and you are sitting around a campfire when someone starts telling yet another Bigfoot story.

You ask yourself – are they really real?

If you have ever wondered if Bigfoot exists, this is the book to read to find out. He not only exists, he lives and thrives here in Idaho.

This book captures a cross section of stories from across the state. They tell the tale of sightings – the smell, the size, where they were and how it happened.

"… he was easily seven and a half feet tall and roughly 800 pounds of muscles and hair – not any fat on him. It had both dark hair and dark eyes and it was obviously a male. It seemed unconcerned … "

“If he wanted to he could have ripped me in half,”

So what really happened? Are they really real?

Read the book and decide yourself.

Dave Higley has had not one, but two, encounters with Bigfoot. He said that back in 1978 he was hunting up in the mountains between Idaho and Wyoming in an area called Bloody Bucket. About four in the afternoon on a fall day he was coming down the mountain after hunting elk when he came around a bend and within twenty feet of a Bigfoot and had a face-to-face encounter.

He said that they were both startled, but he didn’t get scared. He had all his firearms with him but didn’t feel threatened in any way and the Bigfoot took a good, long look at him then slowly meandered off up the hill. At their closest they were only 20 feet apart and Higley got a good look at him. He said he was easily seven and a half feet tall and roughly 800 pounds of muscles and hair – not any fat on him. It had both dark hair and dark eyes and it was obviously a male. It seemed unconcerned to have the encounter. Higley said that he just left the area and walked back down to his own truck with a feeling that was slightly surreal- as though that encounter just clarified to him, “Wow, they really are real!”

He said that had the Bigfoot wanted to hurt him he surely could have – he was big enough and looked strong enough to do a lot of damage.

“If he wanted to he could have ripped me in half,” Higley said.

Later he was kicking himself for not going back to take pictures or castings of the footprints because they were both standing in about two inches of dust along the roadway.

“Hind sight is a wonderful thing,” he said.

But one thing changed – he made it a point to take a camera with him each and every time he went into the woods.

All of us have had moments where life is suspended in time, when life seems frozen in an amazing snap shot. Occasionally we pull that experience out from the recesses of our mind - to look at it, to savor it, and to experience it again. It is at times like these when you wonder if you really saw what you think you just saw, like those times where you just can’t quite believe your eyes – like say, when you saw your first Bigfoot.

“It was bigger than anything I have ever seen – really tall and furry from head to toe! It was just so surprising – I didn’t expect to run into anything on a trip to the bathroom.”

“They are smart, and they can sit still for a really long time. Besides, they have the whole forest to hide in; no wonder people don’t see them real often.”

“I didn’t believe in Bigfoot, I thought it was a hoax. Now I believe it and I look at every bear track differently. I know they are up there. It’s one thing to think you see it and it’s another thing entirely to have one scare you half to death! Why lie when the truth is so much more amazing?”

Read along as more stories are told of the amazing Bigfoot who have been seen right here in Idaho – some of them near your own home.
