So many scary books, so little time.

The Wendigo - Algernon Blackwood

31 days, to be exact.


I highly recommend this one.


If you like scary books to read around the campfire, this is it.


Although, since it takes place in the woods, maybe the cozy fireplace at home would be a better choice of reading venue.

If I had read this while camping, we would have been packing up and heading for home in record time.


We never do get to 'see' the Wendigo, or it's feet, but the descriptions provided will send you're imagination into overdrive.




Wow. The suspense has just ratcheted up a few notches.
Foot prints in the snow after scents   and sounds.

Luring the guide away after scaring him half to death.

The foot prints change...



The setting is creepy: the deep woods.
Canada or Northern US way back when there were still huge, old forests.
Somewhere near Hudson Bay.
