Review of Keith Adam Luethke’s “Ravenous: Through The Eyes of Bigfoot”
Ravenous: Through the Eyes of Bigfoot is a short story that gives us a brief insight into what the life of a Bigfoot creature may be like. Terrill goes by that name only because it is the sound his mother made before abandoning him. He is a lone hunter, wandering the wilderness facing off again bears and smaller prey, but has crossed paths with men before. He does not fear them-he does not fear anything. They appear to be weak and like him, are not animals. Terrill has created his own goes in lieu of having any guidance from any other Bigfoots, and sacrifices to them.
The story covers his experience with mankind, learning that while they are weaker in many ways, being much smaller and soft, but have weapons and don’t act like the animals, who flee and never return when one of them gets attacked. Humans are willing to hunt him and try to destroy him before he wipes them all out.
Again, this is a short story, but it still provides the reader with a good understanding of both the violent and somewhat sad existence of this solitary hunter. The best story I’ve read from Keith so far, and this certainly has the potential to be expanding into a larger tale.
