Anything can happen when you befriend a mountain woman named Martha Sluggett and set out to trap a Sasquatch. For Kevin and Spittótwo eleven-year-old boys living in a small Canadian townótheir night in the wilderness turns out to be more frightening than even they could have imagined.
When things go wrong, Kevin blames Spitt, Spitt blames Kevin, and it looks like their friendship is over for good. But one stormy day the Highwood River swells to overflowing, putting Martha's life in terrible danger. That's when the two boys must decide if they're willing to swallow their pride and work together to save someone they both care deeply about. [from publisher's web site]
