From the highly acclaimed author of The Ghost of Fossil Glen comes a touching tribute to the untouched beauty of wildlife through “strong, vividly evoked characters” and “a contemporary message illuminated by its historical setting” (Kirkus Reviews).
Lostman’s River is home to Tyler MacCauley and his family, just as it is to thousands of birds and other wildlife that share Nature’s piece of the Earth.
But greed and profit have brought great danger into the swampland, and when Tyler and his family dare to trust a stranger they realize that their worst fear has come true. Their new acquaintance has jeopardized not only the land and all who live there, but their own future as well.
