Arla has interacted with Bigfoot since her childhood in Southeast Oklahoma. She accepts the “hairy people” as just part of her life. For her, Bigfoot hanging about is as natural an encounter as with any other forest dweller. Arla is a beloved mentor to many experiencing the Forest Folk. If you ever get a chance to go Squatching with her, be ready for lots of drumming and lots of laughter. She also appears on a podcast with Thom Cantrall, Sasquatch Talk and More with Thom and Arla.
Arla has captured her experiences in two books, the first for adults, and the second for children. Her down home style of writing and delightful illustrations make for great reading.
