Joseph Bruchac, the award-winning author of Skeleton Man, puts a contemporary spin on Native American lore to create a spine-tingling tale of monsters and darkness.
What kind of sinister creature lurks in the dark pond in the forest? Armie can feel it calling to him . . . and he suspects the answer may lie in the legends of his Shawnee ancestors.
“Although it’s steeped in Mohawk lore and tradition, Bruchac’s story is contemporary both in its setting and its celebration of the enduring strength and courage of Native American women.” (Booklist)
