Ancient horrors come to life in this "chilling supernatural thriller to be read . . . with all the lights on and the doors and windows locked" (Kennebec Journal).

Algonquin legend tells of the Wendigo, an evil, cannibalistic spirit reborn in winter to possess and punish mankind. For John Bear, the Wendigo is merely a scary story his grandfather used to tell him. Then a local man is found dead in the deep woods of northern Maine, butchered like an animal with his heart cut out. The only tracks are massive footprints that can't possibly be human. John is sure that what's stalking the inhabitants of their remote outpost is a Wendigo, even if no one else believes him. When they finally do, it's going to be too late.

Vaughn C. Hardacker, two-time finalist for the Maine Literary Award, "gets it all right - the bone-chilling cold of the north woods, the isolation and loneliness, the quirky characters, the constant peril - and tops it off with a tense hunt for a killing legend" in this hair-raising thriller of mythic monsters and endless bloodlust (Dale T. Phillips, author of the Zack Taylor Mysteries).

Genre: Horror

Praise for this book

"The horror residing on the pages of Hardacker's latest thriller is more terrifying than an old Algonquin legend. Wendigo will have you looking over your shoulder and locking your doors." - Bruce Robert Coffin
