Kurt Andon, a professional actor since 1969, has completed his new book “Young Bigfoot”: an evocative frontier story blending legend, folklore, and historical fantasy in a spellbinding tale of friendship and adventure.

Kurt writes, “On a rocky mountain outcrop staring out to the distant forest and valleys is Young Bigfoot. Eighteen winters old, standing eight and a half-feet tall, broad shoulders, narrow waist, weighting four hundred and fifty pounds of solid, sinewy muscle. The same instinct that for thousands of years has driven salmon and sea turtles to seek out and return to the beaches and rivers of their origin is raging through Young Bigfoot. He wants to ramble and he’s going to.

On a farm eighteen-hundred miles east stands Buck Holbrooks, dust swirling around his feet where crops should be growing. Buck was a good man. He had worked as hard as any man could to make a go of the land his daddy and granddaddy had farmed. He’s watching as another wagon train heading west rolled by. It’s 1849 and gold had been struck in California; many folks were looking to strike it rich. It was time, he would tell his wife, Daisy, for them to head west too, along with their children Penn and Belle.

‘Young Bigfoot’ is a story about two worlds colliding: Buck’s seventeen-year-old son Penn and Young Bigfoot. Their meeting and their friendship become legendary. It began deep in a forest in the Pacific Northwest and lives on today with the folks who live there.”
