This book is based on real-life events that took place in the North Cascade Mountains in the State of Washington. Lori grew up in Kirkland and her Dad, Don, would often visit on the weekends. He was a real life Mountain Man. Lori developed her tracking skills from her Dad from the days when she was a little girl fishing with him on the treacherous Skagit River. Don Wallace lived in the North Cascades for 30 years and tracked Bigfoot for over 28 years. Don was a hunter, trapper, and fisherman, a man who genuinely knew how to use the woods for survival, not for trophies. He had a special way with animals; somehow they knew he meant them no harm and had a good heart. He shared the forest with these Bigfoots, and they, too, seemed to know he had a kindred spirit. After Don lost his battle to cancer, Lori had to fulfill his dying wish. She made a promise to her Dad that she would share the truth about Bigfoot, that they do exist. Lori’s father passed away before he finished writing his book Tracking Bigfoot and Lori told her father on his death bed she would make sure it was published. The book was her father’s journal of his real-life Bigfoot encounters and his interviews with local witnesses. Don learned these unique creatures seemed to live all around his property deep in the North Cascades Mountains.
Tracking Bigfoot: the Journey Continues is Lori’s journal, dated from March, 2012, to July, 2014. Lori wanted to feel close to her father, so she decided to hike on the same paths where her father tracked Bigfoot. She discovered his stories were true. These amazing creatures seemed to trust Lori, they didn’t just make sounds in the forest but even led her to where they live! Lori has inherited Don’s unique ability with nature. She still cherishes the memory of how Don sat down to eat lunch and a wild rabbit appeared and sat calmly beside him. She took over her father’s research area in the North Cascades, and it was there Lori had her first Bigfoot encounter. She was frightened at first by the strange sounds and activities, but more experience brought with it a sense of ease. She was able to be a free spirit, a person in communion with nature while in Bigfoot Country. These creatures truly enjoy listening to her voice and hearing her laughter. Lori researches throughout all the seasons of the year. She has hiked in the winter snow up to her knees even in the dark by moonlight. Lori’s research evolved from simple awareness to studying the creatures’ behavior patterns. She discovered they were very familiar with her father and perhaps were even saddened by his passing. At first only one creature, nicknamed the Big Guy, allowed Lori to know he was there. With time, others followed suit, allowing Lori to establish a trusting relationship. She learned more about their behavior with humans and one another. It’s possible the Bigfoots have known Lori from the time she was
a girl going fishing with her dad. They show intelligent signs they know of the connection. Lori has taken people of varied credentials to her father’s area to assist with her research. She has taken members of Sasquatch organizations and couple of the world’s leading academics, including Professor Bryan Sykes. In the beginning Lori believed that proving these creatures’ existence was the main goal but discovered there was more: she was truly blessed to live in the moment with an amazing fellow species she studied with her heart as well as her mind. They share the forest with ease and watch over Lori while she goes hiking, and she can feel their blessing. This book will open your eyes to what you thought was just a mythical creature.
