I call out, 'James, where are you?' A sudden look of terror moves across Ina's face. She drops the broom on the floor and shouts. Then she goes out the front door, screaming for him. I pause for a moment, trying to think of something to say. 'I can't find him! He is not at Joni's house! Joni is waiting on me to fetch her. We cannot leave her alone in that old house. They might kill her too.' I should never have said kill. They thought the creatures were harmless. But when twelve-year-old James is taken by the huge, hairy, unknown creatures, Jack enlists Jim, a tracker, to help free his son from the beasts. As the men track James through the cold, snow-covered forest, they come to realize something wonderful is taking place within the creatures' clan. It's hard to believe, however, and Jim insists on further exploration. Is James really teaching the creatures how to be like humans? Using words and building fire? Is he really safe or is it just a terrible ploy? The Saluda River Sighting is a suspenseful, fantastical story that poses questions about humanity and shows what a father will do to get back his son.
