This book tells of a strong-willed man, with the help and support of his family and friends, beating cancer, twice! During the 700 hours of chemotherapy and during 92 days at the Stanford Medical Center for a bone marrow transplant, Kennon Carter kept a daily log. Then to take his mind from medical procedures, on the days he had the strength, he wrote about his outdoor exploits. This book intertwines his cancer battle with his adventures in a very uplifting manner. And, what adventures they are! Ken tells of fishing strong rivers like the Klamath and Trinity in Northern California; he takes us on a frenzied Wyoming antelope hunt; he climbs Half Dome in Yosemite; he gets mountain sickness after summiting Mt. Whitney. He tells of his first introduction to the phenomena known as “Bigfoot,” and of the curiosity that leads him to search for the elusive “being.”Many of his recollections about tracking “Bigfoot” or “Sasquatch” tell of mysterious events. Shiver to his descriptions of “night walkers,” and more, at Kate Camp, Thunder Mountain, Skookum Lake, and high up Indian Henry. Learn Oregon has genuine moonshining hillbillies, UFOs, “Wild Bears” and much more.This fun book reads fast. The index lists over 250 people, place names, and events. That’s a lot of index for a 201 page book. All this is told in “Kennon of the High Country’s” colorful writing style that may make you cringe, grin, shake your head, or just maybe, laugh out loud.
