Hello again Sasquatch Fans of All Ages…
As always, I hope all is well with each of you.
Welcome new readers! Sasquatch Tracker continues to be picking up fans at a pretty steady rate. Nothing wrong with that! Thanks to all for your support!
Alright, let’s get to it… I just finished reading Larry “Beans” Baxter’s book:
ABANDONED: The History and Horror of Port Chatham, Alaska and I found it entertaining and inspiring!
Baxter begins his book by describing an encounter he and his wife had near Sterling, AK, and follows up with a brief introduction about his personal background and how he became interested in Bigfoot.
Baxter then goes on to give a bit of history of Port Chatham, also known as Portlock, and discusses the establishment of a fish processing cannery and the employee housing. He briefly talks about area’s natural resources by giving us a small look at the chromite and coal mining operations as well as the sawmills and logging businesses that took place nearby – all necessary background information for what is to happen next.
Baxter’s descriptions of the violence that took place is something right out of a good horror movie. Having an ongoing interest Sasquatch violence, I was familiar with each of the encounters and even though I knew the fates of those who crossed paths with the Nantiinaq, I still caught myself hoping that the victims would somehow be able to escape. I’d love to say more, but I don’t want to be the “spoiler”.
Baxter wraps things up by giving us some details and personal insights, including a handful of photographs, on the two trips to the area he was on with Extreme Expeditions Northwest, LLC.
Baxter’s writing style flows wonderfully, and it will definitely capture your attention. He presents the right amount of area history while recounting the horrific tales of Nantiinaq violence. The combination of his personal experiences along with the insights surrounding the two expeditions makes this an easy to read and enjoyable book.
You can order this awesome book directly from Baxter’s website: www.alasquatchpodcast.com.
Bottom line and final verdict: two thumbs up!
Godspeed, loyal readers…
