We need a radically new approach to Sasquatch research. For much too long, we have stereotyped our next of kin, certain that they must confine themselves only to the most remote wilderness, occasionally sneaking up to campsites just long enough to scare the hell out of us before withdrawing once again to the far corners of the forest. Incorrect. Increasingly, evidence is pointing a different way, toward an intimate proximity between our two species. Until we can demystify Sasquatch, know them as a fellow human species, and begin to get a handle on their fascinating behavior and intellectual gifts, they will remain abstract “monsters” seen through the wrong end of a telescope. What if they are not, after all, too far away for us to see—what if they are too close?
