The winter of 1799 is falling fast on the small Ohio Territory settlement of Hugh's Lick. Food is scarce, and relations with the Delaware tribe are strained; but things are about to get much worse. In the midst of a storm, frontiersman Cole Seavey is attacked by a creature that is neither man nor beast but something burst forth from the bowels of hell and reeking of the grave. Badly injured, he is rescued by Pakim, a young Delaware brave, and is taken to safety at the home of John Chapman, whom readers will remember from Jensen's best seller Frontiers. Cole's intense attraction to Pakim leaves him longing for something he fears to even consider. He half convinces himself that the monster he battled is the product of his fevered brain. But then the killings begin, killings of such ferocity they can only be the work of something neither human nor animal. The Delaware call it the Wendigo. As the town waits in terror for the next attack, Cole, Pakim and Chapman find themselves face-to-face with the Wendigo; it is a face they know well.
Michael Jensen is the author of Frontiers, a novel that featured a young John Chapman, who would become the American folk icon Johnny Appleseed. Jensen lives in Tacoma, Wash., with his partner, the novelist Brent Hartinger.
