"Visitor from the East" is the first of two short works by Harry Turtledove, published in Thirty Days Later: Steaming Forward: 30 Adventures in Time (A.J. Sikes, B.J. Sikes, and Dover Whitecliff, ed., Thinking Ink Press 2016). It is the first of a series of works to feature Bill Williamson, the Sasquatch governor of the state of Jefferson. The story is essentially a vignette, set in August, 1979, spotlighting Governor Williamson's meeting/photo-op with the Yeti Lama of Tibet. The story gives a quick sketch of Jefferson's history and comparatively open culture, and hints at the broad role sasquatches have played in the Pacific Northwest of the United States.
