Brooks' story takes place after a Mt Rainier eruption where nearby exists an eco-community, brilliantly colored with its latest tech and green development. The author cleverly blends the journals of a member chronicling life and events leading up to and during the attack of Sasquachs with a park ranger's aftermath accounts of encroaching civilization and effects to increase animal attacks. Interspersed are well placed quotes from Darwin, Jane Goodall, and others. I like how Brooks throws in our civilization's anthropomorphizing animals and idealizing our interactions with them. I wasn't as keen on the massacre - a bloody, brain spilling combat. I found the story filled with little truisms if you read between the lines. Best Sasquatch type legend yet.
