Cryptid:The Lost Legacy of Lewis Clark

Overview

The line between history and legend can be deceptively thin. Too thin perhaps to maintain the claim that one is exclusively fact and one fiction. Such may be the case with the history of Lewis and Clark. For the fact is that two hundred years after they were handpicked by Thomas Jefferson to lead an extraordinary expedition to the Pacific Coast legends still persist regarding unexplained gaps in the explorers' field journals.

More About This Book

Overview

The line between history and legend can be deceptively thin. Too thin perhaps to maintain the claim that one is exclusively fact and one fiction. Such may be the case with the history of Lewis and Clark. For the fact is that two hundred years after they were handpicked by Thomas Jefferson to lead an extraordinary expedition to the Pacific Coast legends still persist regarding unexplained gaps in the explorers' field journals.

Call it legend, call it history, Cryptid tells the riveting story of conspiracy theorists who have new evidence of a centuries-old cover-up. When a cryptozoologist, a paleontologist, and a Jefferson descendant begin connecting the dots, they threaten to do more than unveil the well-guarded scientific discovery that lies at the heart of the ancient secret; they threaten to rewrite American history. That is if they can survive a conspiracy that dates back to the Founding Fathers-the very same that haunted Lewis to his grave. It may be that one of our nation's first secrets is still being kept.

Cryptid illustrates how the human act of seeking the truth can be the very element that destroys it. Two centuries in the making, Cryptid is the final chapter of the Lewis and Clark story. As with any good tale, the best secrets have been kept until the end.

    A Page Turner.... A Must Read.....

    This book was amazing! Once I got into it, I couldn't put it down. It reminded me of a page turner, like the Davinci Code. I couldn't wait to read each new chapter or section. I could visualize the characters and wanted more and more of each of them. What an outstanding novel! I highly recommend it. I CANNOT wait for a sequel!!!

    Fiction and a little truth all wrapped in one....

    This is a rollicking romp of an adventure novel with a science fiction skeleton -- or maybe it's the other way around. The action ranges from China to Washington, D.C. to the Olympic rain forest and points in between, and the story is told in several voices which are as distinct and characteristic as they are engaging. The characterization is strong, the pace is brisk without being rushed, the surprises are neither telegraphed or short-changed, and the whole thing is an absolute hoot from start to finish (in the sense of being great fun). Penz resists the temptation to tie everything up in too tidy a bundle at the end of the novel, so that the intrigue lives on when the last page is turned -- in other words, it delivers (grin). I particularly enjoyed the integration of long-dead voices into the living narrative, phonetic spelling and all. Recommended for a fun read, but maybe not to take camping with you if you're going to the woods, especially the Olympics!

    Big Foot - A Government Cover Up?

    From the beginning of the book you are captured in a suspenseful hunt for the truth about Big Foot. Connecting a government conspiricy back to the days of Lewis and Clark to a modern day discovery keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout the entire book. A real page turner and a must read.

    An amazingly woven web

    The author did an incredible job of weaving multiple story lines together into one truly amazing journey. From the past with Lewis and Clark to present with multiple story lines on multiple continents, it all came together in an intense search to find out the truth about the existence of big foot. This non stop thriller will keep you coming back for more. You won't be able to put it down. This fictional story will make you second guess your opinion on whether big foot could really exist.
