One of the persistent contemporary American myths is of a giant, hairy, human-like beast, or Bigfoot, predominantly haunting the Pacific Northwest rainforest. But it is not a modern myth - it is a very old one. Long before Europeans arrived, indigenous native tribes across the vast continent had as many as one hundred names for it: Sasquatch being one that survives today. This myth intersects with another, thousands of miles away in the remote Himalayas, equally as old: the Yeti.In more recent times, on the highest mountain range in the world, inexplicable tracks in the snow and ice have left modern mountaineers baffled. These giant footprints uncannily echo those found in North America. Despite modernity and the pushback of nature, all attempts to extinguish the myth of Bigfoot, Sasquatch, the Yeti have failed. It remains a powerful and resilient mystery.
