Star and written review to come after research.

I'm obsessed with missing person stories.Television shows, podcasts, youtube videos....I'm not exactly sure what attracts me to tales of the disappeared, but I listen to many of them. I think it might be that I can't imagine never knowing....having someone close to me disappear and the idea of how shattering it would be to never know where they are and what happened. Even when remains are found, the whole story is rarely revealed. I can't imagine what it would be like to lose someone like that....a friend, a parent....a child.

When I saw this book available for review, of course I jumped right on it. Yep -- definitely reading this one. And I'm glad I did. Billman not only shares details of multiple cases of missing persons in national parks, but he doesn't just focus on the missing and their families, but delves into those who search and law enforcement/park authorities. Can you imagine searching the wilderness for a lost child....only to find nothing? I can't imagine how difficult that must be for EMS, park rangers and police. Tracking dogs who can't find a scent trail....no evidence....and a lingering, heart-breaking mystery.

Here one second....gone the next. And it could happen to anyone, even skilled outdoorsmen. Our national parks are beautiful, but these stories do shoot home the idea that hacking trails through it does not tame the wilderness. There are wild animals, and other dangers in any national park. So many people though....and so few answers. Even in vast miles of wilderness, it seems odd that people vanish so often.

Loved this book! Billman presents facts in an interesting way, and brings the stories of the vanished to life. I read my review copy, and then immediately bought the audio book. Hope to read more by this author!

The primary focus of the narrative is Jacob Grey who vanished in Olympic National Park. The underlying message is the number of hikers, day trippers, and campers who have mysteriously vanished in wilderness areas in the U.S. and Canada. It’s a disturbing read. ( )

An interesting and poignant look at the missing in America's wilderness. ( )

This is an intriguing, yet heartwrenching account of all the people who vanish in our national forest, and the writer wrote from a first person point of view, following a grieving father Randy 1,000s of miles as he attempts to figure out what happened to his missing 22 year old son, Jacob. The author also followed a man with bloodhounds as he trained one of his pups to hunt for cadavers and followed yet another man into the Canadian bush as they tried to track down where a missing person may have been camping and/or hiding out. He learned plenty of survivalist tips and tricks along the way, and made several great friends, including a group at what they called Bigfoot Barn, Bigfoot hunters who tried helping Randy find Jacob and let them stay when they were in the area. This book also provides a vast history of missing people, some going back into the 1800's, so if you are into the Investigation Discovery show "Disappeared" or the movie "Into the Wild", then this book is definitely a must read.

What can I say about Randy? He seemed like a kooky, part hippie, part surfer type who was desperate to find his son, hurting himself several times as he tested his physical and mental limits. He always seemed upbeat and happy through it all. I frowned as they followed the bigfoot feeding woman who told Randy the bigfoot would tell him what happened to Jacob, but when you are a desperate parent, I guess a lead is a lead.

Now I won't lie, I did end up googling if Jacob was found or not, and where I will not ruin this book, it is exactly what the reader expects. All of these midadventures of the author and Randy lead up to the inevitable. I was glad for the family for finally gaining closure, and I hope this book is an eye opener for those rescue personnel who did not let search teams or dogs into the forest until it was too late. Thanks for another great read NetGalley. ( )
