At age 10, Eli Roebuck watched in disbelief as his mother packed her bags and ran off with her lover – a giant Sasquatch named Mr. Krantz. So begins Eli’s lifelong obsession with Northwestern hominids, and the dark, absurd, and heartfelt novel, The Sasquatch Hunter's Almanac from award-winning writer Sharma Shields.
“The Sasquatch Hunter's Almanac is deeply strange and strangely moving. Like Kafka's The Metamorphosis, it demands and rewards surrender.” —Richard Russo, winner of the Pulitzer Prize
