About the Author:

Since he saw his first Sasquatch in 1957 in Mason County Washington, Robert W. Morgan has traveled the world seeking more information about the beings he calls Forest Giants.
His search has led him to Native Americans and their legends, a Tibetan lama, and expeditions to the forests of Washington State, sometimes alone, sometimes in groups. He has had encounters with these beings, which he believes are True Human Beings.
Morgan resides in Whitefish, Montana, where he spends the winter months writing. Summertime is reserved for more adventures.

Review:

A routine, scientific search for the American Sasquatch leads Robert Morgan to some of the most secret knowledge of Native American tribes across the United States, as well as encounters with the last of the legendary men of the Old West, and unexplained mysterious lights in the night sky. Along this fascinating ride, the reader also learns what fuels this man s search for the elusive Forest People. For this reader, this was the most fascinating tale of all.

Seeking to refute the Judeo-Christian view of man being created in the image of God, Morgan researches the tales of Sasquatch, reasoning that if he can provide good evidence of its existence, humanity will have to make room in its family tree for one more relative, and revise its view that Homo Sapiens is the only being that possesses a soul and therefore is the supreme being on this planet... All in all, a fascinating read on several levels. I recommend it. --Val Smith - past President - Authors of the Flathead

Soul Snatchers is an engrossing read about the fabulous life of Robert W. Morgan. I couldn t put it down. --Catt LeBaigue, literary agent, Heacock Literary Agency, Inc

The Soul Snatchers ranks among the most unusual and provocative books I've had the pleasure of reviewing. From the first paragraph you are drawn into a gripping adventure and made to believe this work is solely about the mysteries surrounding the myths and legends of Bigfoot. Do not be misled. Instead, Robert Morgan takes the reader on a fascinating journey among Native American tribes where he counsels with elders and shamans while seeking their advice on how to get to the truth.

Along the way he introduces authentic Old West curmudgeons, including a century-old Apache, a 90 year-old ex-bounty hunter, a cousin to Wyatt Earp and a maverick Christian minister. Each in his own way brings the author closer to his goal. Morgan encounters tragic suicide, madness, and death before finally meeting a Tibetan lama in Russia who helps him see the purpose and meaning of human existence.

I won t say I agree with everything in The Soul Snatchers, but Robert Morgan certainly made me think. --Bill Thomas - Washington Author and Journalist
