“An entertaining and thoroughly researched travelogue, as much about America’s need for mystery as the elusive denizens of the Klamath forests.” - Ben Waterhouse, Willamette Week
“McLeod approaches Bigfoot culture the way Susan Orlean approached orchids . . . artfully traces our culture's obsession to walking man-beasts.” - Justin Berton, San Francisco Chronicle
“Compelling.” - Jason Zasky, Failure
“Insightful and amusing.” - Robert Nott, Santa Fe New Mexican
“A funny, well-written memoir about chasing down the believers.” - Scott Bradfield, Bookforum
“McLeod writes evocatively of a rich, wondrous ecological area known as ‘The Klamath Knot.’" - Nick Owchar, Los Angeles Times Book Review
“With prose that's both sensitive and probing, McLeod explores this very human aspect, the tendency to see pictures in the clouds, UFOs in the sky, and fragments of evolution in the woods.” - Andi Diehn, Foreword
