In the Oregon wilderness, two young eco-warriors and college sweethearts, Ian and Nicole, try to sabotage the loggers’ equipment, while a man named Michael Gardner is trying to unwind by camping in the woods. They will encounter ancient beings that are usually considered as myth or made up monsters to scare young kids. When loggers Jason Ibsen and Sam Kloss venture far into the forest to cut down a tree, little do they know that it will be the biggest mistake they ever made as their action incites the rage of the giant beasts. In the battle between nature lovers against the logging industry, the elusive beings of the woods also fight for their primitive survival.

Jeff England spins a solid tale of North American folklore with beasts that exist in the wild and leave mysterious footprints. Grey Canyon (Den of Bigfoot) is an easy read but the plot is substantiated with the references to European, Japanese and Native American folklore and environmental concerns. On the other hand, I like the fact that the message is not one-sided and doesn’t fully demonize the antagonists as issues of jobs, income, and supporting family from the loggers’ point of view are included. There’s also an interesting reference to Edward Abbey’s The Monkey Wrench Gang, which motivate me to reread it again as well as look for its sequel, Hayduke Lives! Well-paced and with solid characterization, the plot twist and the ending of Grey Canyon are deftly done. On the whole, Jeff England’s Grey Canyon is an entertaining read.
