Adventure, scientific inquiry, a tinge of mystery, and a hint of the unexplainable infuse this meticulously imagined tale. In a story matching the breathtaking scope of its Pacific Northwest and North Pacific setting, Sheldon’s tale startles, yet challenges us to think. One stormy May night, just as Tom Olsen is about to leave with his Native American friends to visit his grandfather’s grave deep in Washington State’s Olympic Peninsula wilderness, he answers a knock at his door to find an abandoned thirteen-year-old girl. The girl announces her name is Sarah Cooley and that Tom is her grandfather. She tells Tom he lives at the end of the earth. All she sees is dripping forest, tall trees, rain, and wind. Astonished, all Tom sees is trouble. He knows he should cancel the trip and deal with Sarah, but when his friends suggest bringing Sarah along, Tom reluctantly agrees, hoping a backpacking trip might teach Sarah some sorely needed lessons about character, responsibility, and grit. All too soon, Tom and his friends have reason to wonder—are they taking Sarah Cooley on this journey, or is she taking them?

Author Bio: Charlie Sheldon

Charlie Sheldon was raised in New England, went to sea as a commercial fisherman, became a bureaucrat, was retired, then returned to sea as a merchant sailor. When he is ashore he writes, cooks, cleans house, and hikes in Olympic National Park. He loves sea stories told in the foc’sle when well offshore, just as he loves tales before a campfire deep in the woods. There’s nothing better, nothing, than a story well told.
