Another great book from Rusty Wilson, Bigfoot expert and storyteller. This is the third print book in Rusty's collection of Bigfoot campfire stories, tales for both the Bigfoot believer and those who just enjoy a good story! This book is a compilation of three of Rusty's ebooks ("Ten Intense Bigfoot Campfire Stories," "Six Short Bigfoot Campfire Stories," and "Hairy Trio of Bigfoot Campfire Stories") for those of you without ereaders or who just want them in print. Flyfishing guide Rusty Wilson spent years collecting these stories from his clients around the campfire, stories guaranteed to scare the pants off you - or make you want to meet the Big Guy! Come read about a territorial Bigfoot guarding a cave high in the Colorado mountains - a group of mountain bikers being stalked on a remote ride - a Bigfoot who's tired of tourists - a night hike gone astray - the weather forecasting Bigfoot - a woman who finds definitive proof of the existence of Bigfoot - and the kids who witness a Bigfoot picnic - all great campfire tales - but be careful, as sleep will elude you... "I think those who are fortunate enough to see Bigfoot may not realize their good luck-but they are truly blessed to have had a connection with another species that may be as smart as humans, even if it did scare the pants off them." -Rusty Wilson 6 by 9 inches
