This is a surprising story entwining elements of fiction and reality. The author is led to a prehistoric cave site with priceless artifacts, gold and diamonds quite accidentally when a family of Bigfoot/Sasquatch, yes S-A-S-Q-U-A-T-C-H befriend him. His compassion and desire to protect "his friends" from being discovered is only a glimpse of this unusual encounter.
