Peter Bigfoot is perhaps best known for his July 1976 solo foraging trek across the Sonoran Desert. He brought no food or water, relying strictly on what could be foraged along the way, and bushwhacked 85 miles in 15 days. Grueling heat, the constant threat of dehydration, and a bout with hepatitis were true tests of his wilderness survival wisdom. This transformational experience inspired Peter to found Reevis Mountain School of Self-Reliance, in the northeast corner of Arizona’s Superstition Wilderness. Here students experience Bigfoot’s uniquely loving blend of botanical knowledge, survival skills, natural healing techniques, and spiritual awareness.
Peter is also the master craftsman behind Reevis Mountain Remedies, a line of healthful herbal extracts he has made available to the public since 1988.
