Never has Dr. Jeremy Fishleder forgotten the massive creature he glimpsed as a child, staring back at him from the edge of the Florida wilds. Strange and terrifying, the encounter would go on to inform his dual careers: one, as a professor of zoology, the other as a less formal researcher of the weird, probing the obscure landscape where Bigfoot and any other half-mythic beast might just be hiding.
Prompted by a health scare and an academic shake-up, Jeremy takes a long-overdue sabbatical for a road trip around the United States, all to places of strange repute. Three recent graduates decide to join him and, as they delve into the wilds of earth and steel, together they discover secrets hidden in the shadows of outer as well as inner nature.
The book was rated 9.75 out of 10 by Publishers Weekly’s BookLife Prize.
