Jason says he can't remember where he was for the two months he went missing in the swamps. That's not true. He does remember. The truth: He was driving with his parents, and the car crashed when his father swerved to avoid colliding with a 12-foot Sasquatch-like creature standing in the highway. Haunted by his parents disappearance and presumed deaths, hounded for claiming to have seen Bigfoot, Jason sets off into the deadly wilderness on a hunt for answers as to what really happened that night, and the creatures he finds are more terrifying—and fascinating—than he could have imagined.

Adam Parks remembers seeing something in the road that night and despite the policeman’s suggestion, it definitely was not a bear. After a car crash leaves Adam in the hospital and his parents missing, presumably dead, the news reports that he saw a Sasquatch and his lucidity is now in question. Adam, not even knowing what a Sasquatch is, looks it up online and finds hundreds of hits with descriptions of “Bigfoot’”and “Sasquatch.” Off to prove himself, Adam takes off into the black snake and alligator waters of Suwanee River in search of the mysterious creatures and proof that he is right. There, Adam finds an answer and learns that the secrets of the Suwanee are more beautiful than he could have ever imagined. The heavy topics of losing parents and graphic descriptions of eating from dead carcasses may make this title appropate for an older middle grade audience. As with all of Keys’s amazing books, give this to the reluctant reader seeking an outdoors adventure or to someone who loves survivalist fiction.
