Painted on the bluffs near the town of Alton, Illinois is the mural of the Piasa, which according to early Native American residents meant ‘the bird that devoured men.’ The dragon-like depiction overlooks what the Ojibwe Tribe called misi-ziibi...the Mississippi River.

Together with her Alton police officer cousin, Pamela Sweet, and a Chicago museum cryptozoologist, Mike Kellogg, 16 year old Sara Williams searches for an answer to the question, Did the Piasa once actually exist? Sara blossoms into a sassy assistant who discovers that fate has a plan for her and...the legend may be more fact than fiction.
