William T. Prince wrote 'The Legend of Sasquatch'. He included every womanizing-foul mouthed-whiskey-swilling-gun-toting-help-me-jesus moment he could cram into it. It must have been frantic sometimes; this is over-the-top crime writing done very well, and slows only at the page turns. He also transparently splatters it with so many of his own opinions, you could toss the book and it would land open to a page with three of 'em. How William T. does all that hell-bent writing, without making his character a cartoon...well, that's just how it's done in Texas. Clint sticks out everywhere he goes. He also sticks out in this text. He is not a hulk, looking for trouble. Clint is a kid, and a good one. That trouble following him is all too real. W.T. Prince keeps Clint so real, you would swear you went to high school with him. Read over any of the next four things that are garishly written and you will have pages of honesty. Clint is worth reading about. When you get to the chapter titled Absolution...you will know exactly what I mean. If someone real inspired this story for Mr. Prince, I bet he misses that kid.

Imagine Sasquatch not as a fabled forest creature, but instead as a young Texas behemoth - and you'll have Clint Buchanan. Roaming the streets of Dallas in the late 1970's, Clint has the charm, intelligence, personality, and good looks to get whatever - and whomever - he wants; however, encountering more than his fair share of bumps in the road, Clint wends his way through the typically unpredictable evolution of late adolescence, and, joined by his closest buddies, the mercurial phenomenon experiences one adventure after another - trading one form of metaphorical wilderness for another... The Legend Of Sasquatch is a riveting, action-packed read. In his standout debut effort, author William Prince takes the reader on a surprisingly engrossing journey through the depths of the human psyche. As he struggles to find himself, Clint experiences everything from confusion to pain to love to rejection to hope, all of which leaves a lasting impression on the ongoing development of his quite impressionable character. All told - and in convincing fashion - Prince paints a vivid picture of the complex task of simply finding one's own place in the world, regardless of our mental, physical, or emotional status, and as a result, his well-crafted tale is one to which readers of all ages and backgrounds are sure to relate. A deeply gratifying, highly recommended read. Josee Morgan Apex Reviews

First off, be warned that this novel contains some adult content, so don't make the mistake of buying it for a child or anyone who can't handle an R-rated movie. It's definitely for mature readers only, but if you're an adult who loves great characters, a compelling plot, a hot romance, and a lot of action, you can't go wrong with this wonderful story. From the first page to the last, this one will keep you on the edge of your seat, and you will find it very hard to put down. The protagonist is a larger-than-life character in more ways than one. He's very complicated and impossible not to love, and all of the other characters are great too. If you're drawn to books with great characters, you can't go wrong here, but the plot is equally compelling. The ending seemed to be a cliff-hanger, so I suspect there will be a sequel, and I sincerely hope so. If not, I will be sorely disappointed. As I read this novel, I kept thinking, "This would make a great movie!" It would be a real treat to see this story come to life on the big screen. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
