"Be mindful of what lies beyond the wood line."
It’s argued that the recent search for Bigfoot officially began on September 21, 1958, when journalist, Andrew Genzoli of the Humboldt Times, featured a letter from a reader about loggers in Northern California concerning large footprints they’d found at a work site. What began as a fun article turned into an almost instant national sensation and since stories of the elusive creature have poured in, not just from California and the Pacific Northwest, but from around the world.
BEYOND THE FRAY: BIGFOOT features some of these personal eyewitness accounts and terrifying encounters, most taken from the transcripts of the popular podcast, iNTO THE FRAY. These stories are unique and scary. They will leave you wondering what this creature is and will no doubt give you pause before you cross the wood line and enter the woods.
BEYOND THE FRAY: BIGFOOT is a collaborative work between myself and Shannon LeGro, renowned paranormal researcher and host of the popular podcast, iNTO THE FRAY. Many of these are accounts she featured on her show as well as others that have never been documented until now. - G. Michael Hopf
