Description

1.THE MIND OF SASQUATCH: Although we cannot yet study the psychology of Sasquatch directly, we are in good position already to make educated guesses about their mentality based on behavioral analysis. Skeptics are fond of asking, as though no answer were remotely possible, "HOW could an eight-foot-tall primate exist undiscovered in our back yard?" Meeting the issue head-on, THE MIND OF SASQUATCH outlines the Sasquatch Savant Theory, revealing a personality profile of the species that differs substantially from any offered before. Sasquatch are hardwired by evolution to conceal themselves, interacting with us only in a mediated, indirect fashion. Their tactical genius and other striking abilities mirror gifts seen in people known as autistic savants. 2.THE MIND OF SASQUATCH II: The second book deepens the analysis of this parallel while continuing the earlier survey across the scientific landscape: cutting-edge analysis of ancient DNA, fresh insights into Sasquatch origins, and the likely role of autistic traits within human evolution. The book opens, however, with the story of Noel's 2015 field research in the ravine, which yielded Sasquatch video footage and, more importantly, an unforgettable lesson. 3. THE GIRL WHO SPOKE WITH GIANTS: Twelve-year-old Pamela Manchester is an autistic savant whose reputation for amazing feats of memory and perception is quickly spreading. Large crowds flock to her live performances. YouTube and Facebook fame are gaining momentum. Back home in rural Minnesota, the girl has different priorities altogether. If not for her ambitious father, managing her "career," she would be happy just repeating her forest routines, learning esoteric facts about nature, and playing Minecraft on her Kindle. The more he tries to control her, the more she fights back. This battle of wills seems hopeless until a family of Sasquatch gradually makes its presence known, changing everything-for better and for worse.
