Child of Bigfoot? by Douglas Franklin

Davy is a spellbinding drama which begins in the late 1800s in the Pacific Northwest. The fictional story is rooted in an actual contemporary newspaper account describing the capture of a hominid "ape-boy" who is destined for the freak show. Thrust into an alien culture, Davy survives with the help of a nurturing couple. A strange, new life is punctuated with flashbacks to his mysterious origins in the deep forest. Fate steers him on a journey of self-discovery, guided by First Nations companions, symbols and traditions.

Davy is a tantalizing tale which brings a new dimension to the elusive "bigfoot" phenomenon.
