An ancient Cherokee legend of a great spirit that protects the land and lake of a South Carolina park, deep in the heart of the reservation, brings Rebecca Anderson home. An up-and-coming biology student. Rebecca is working on her Master’s thesis, attempting to separate fact from fantasy in this persistent local legend; little does she know how real the “legend” is. When people start going missing, and others are found dead, Sheriff Bill Murphy must identify who—or what—is causing all this trouble before it gets worse. As the mystery evolves, it entangles Sarah Muller, a local high school senior, and she finds herself at the center of the investigation, stalked by a nightmare she couldn’t imagine. As all the players move toward the final discovery, they will be shocked by what they learn: the “legend” is more than it seems and not what any of them imagined.
Algonquin Wildlife: Lessons in Survival is a celebration of the vast array of wildlife studies ongoing in Ontario’s very first provincial park. Probably more research has been done in Algonquin than in any other protected landscape in the world. Norm Quinn, long-time Park Management Biologist in Algonquin, has been fortunate to know and to work with many of those dedicated and unique wildlife researchers who roam and probe the forests and lakes in search of Nature’s secrets. His knowledge, experience and sense of humour combine to transform technical biological studies, on moose, wolves, fish and other creatures of the wild, into entertaining and inviting stories without losing the significance of the research. This is also a book about Algonquin, Ontario’s flagship Park and one of the foremost canoe-tripping wilderness sites in the world. Through Algonquin Wildlife, you are invited to explore this relatively unknown but vital part of the Park’s heritage – a must for both seasoned and budding naturalists.
